Even as I felt sadness this morning seeing a man accused of corruption being inaugurated as the president of South Africa, I was cheered up by my friend Kalyani sending me this photo of us taken by her husband in 1984 in the then Orange Free State province. Under apartheid she and her family may as Indians not have stayed in this province for longer than 24 hours. Dumb and humiliating laws. How much better we are off since democracy came to our land in 1994. Now we just need to get rid of those corrupt politicians, starting with the newly inaugurated president.
