I'm not one much for the polls, especially when they contain selections I'm not familiar with or just plain don't like. I've read two of the three Dan Brown books and I can't pick a favorite because although I think he has good stories to tell I think he's a terrible writer! :)

I keep reading. I'll keep posting reviews. Thanks for inviting me.

Now let me take you, back to events before 1947. When India was a colony of the British Empire. The congress party, in its attempt to gain momentum for the independence movement, heavily used Hinduism, an example of which is the famous Ganesh Utsav held in Mumbai every year. Who complains? No one. But at that time, due to various policies of the congress, Muslims started feeling alienated. Jinnah, in these times, got stubborn over the need of Pakistan and he did find a lot of supporters. Congress, up till late 1940's never got bothered by it. And why should we? Who complains? No one.
