Dear Suchi,

I realize this will open me up to all sorts of criticism, but: does this not ring true?  Hindu, Muslim and Indian friends each complain to me that their life is made difficult by members of these other groups.  I tell them, it's not because you're different that they treat you this way; it's because you're all Indian.
