← [Update 1/21] Rajasthan police invented plot - A WRITER UNDER THREAT, AGAIN

I shall be arriving in Jaipur later today, and hope to hear more of the inside story.

Most people of Rajasthan are pious Hindu and Jain and very much complacent with their gods. They are mostly vegetarian (they consider milk in the category of vegetables). Most people of Rajasthan consider eating non-vegetarian food as a taboo. Cast system is also very prevalent there. Some people boast that they are from higher Bramhin cast or other. Marriage is mostly arranged and within same cast and also underage marriage is prevalent. This time weather must be cold and very dry there. Good luck at your India visit. I hope that your talk would kindle some zealot religious ignorant people and broaden some narrow mind.
