Agnosticism, a discordant note

Barkha Dutt Tuesday, March 14, 2006
Swimming in the sea of India’s cultural complexity has taught me that I can no longer carry my agnosticism lightly. Time has convinced me that my resistance to institutionalised religion is the defining character flaw of the progressive elite; a discordant note in an otherwise full-throated symphony; a disconnect so deep that sometimes people like me are just left watching from the sidelines at the tumultuous fight for India’s future; spectators, not participants, because we speak the language of disbelief. But there are times I am grateful that I am neither Hindu nor Muslim, but just a devout sceptic. The writer is Mng. Editor, NDTV 24x7
