India is a thali

As the world's largest democracy strives to give 1.2 billion Indians a stake in modern society, caste and divisions are still alive, and so is the Idea of India, by Shashi Tharoor, from Asian Conversations and Dancing Wolf Media

If America is a “melting-pot”, then to me India is a thali, a selection of sumptuous dishes in different bowls. Each tastes different, and does not necessarily mix with the next, but they belong together on the same plate, and they complement each other.
