Re: 2020 Strategic and Political Analysis-1

Since this unfortunate "inter faith" fiasco is very much in the public domain now, the report could not be avoided. But, cleverly couched under a secular headline: "Family members of girl kill 18-year-old youth in Delhi". So, we are informed that the girl’s family was against her...

Tata/Tanishq should celebrate 'ekatvam' by showcasing the union of a RoL lad with a RoP beauty. That would be true 'inter faith' stuff.
