India’s violent history

Yesterday finished Khushwant Singh's Delhi, which tells the story of the capital from invasion to invasion, massacre to massacre, and concludes with the pogrom on the Sikhs in 1984.  And today I was reading a horrifying story about the Muzzafanagar and Shamli District riots last September. The location of the places where the recent atrocities took place is around 100 km from Delhi.
