The tragedy of the post-Indira Gandhi, post-Advani Indian is that he is so adrift, so insecure, so gullible, so uncertain about himself as well as about the future that awaits him. Lacking a leadership that can draw on his inner balance and sanity to create a balanced and sane future for him, he can be used by people who have gone mad, as did the kar sevak leaders at Ayodhya, to make him turn violent and mad too, and in a sense that sounds eminently moral and elevating.
