This is what Dr John Dayal asks:
How do you as a Christian, Hindu, Muslim or a person from any other Faith or no Faith feel?
I just cannot but share this experience with all of you. I was born and brought up in Bangalore city in India. My neighbourhood like many of yours was indeed a heaven on earth. We lived in a semi-detached house sharing it with a Hindu Brahmin Family for more than 12 years and then the owners occupied that house. They are Lingagayats. We lived like one family in Jeremiah Road. We had Hindus, Christians, Muslims, families beloging to different cultures, langauges, faiths and states within India and even 2 British families. I remember many a times, on Bakrid, when the Muslim families distributed meat to all the neighbouring homes, even these Hindu Brahmin/Lingagayts would receive it knowing fully well what it was. Muslim families gave it knowing fully well that these people will not consume that.
