Is Raghuvir Nagar more distant than Dadri from Lutyen's Delhi?2015: There was no end to the expensive cars in that village. The politicians and journalists were arriving from Delhi in hordes. Before, during and after visiting the family members of the deceased, they were delivering lofty lectures on secularism. They were lamenting how liberal values were being destroyed. We, the mango-people, were in total shame.
January, 2018: Raghuvir Nagar is in Delhi. It is in West Delhi. The expensive SUVs would take less than 20 minutes to reach the narrow by-lanes where the family of Ankit Saxena lives. That Ankit Saxena who was brutally butchered by the family members (including 16-year-old brother) of his lady-love from ''another community''. That Ankit Saxena, whose mother was somehow saved from the butchers, while trying to save her own son. Very few journalists visited them. Very few political leaders visited the grief-stricken family members.
Perhaps Raghuvir Nagar is more distant than Dadri from Lutyen's Delhi.
