Long back I read about the term remanence in Physics. It essentially says that whatever be the present state of a matter, it always saves its most inherent feature or quality.
Today, I saw a religious rally on my way to office. A reasonably large group of people, moving along pulling a chariot of Mother Mary.
The group was mostly if not all Christian, but it could very easily be a group part of Margazhi Pooja.
All of a sudden, this word REMANENCE hit me like a bolt.
Regardless of faith and practices, there is something that unites us all. Something that is very Indian. Something that cannot be taken away whatsoever.
