[Fiction] Two brothers begin to drift apart in India during the late ’60s after one decides to study in the U.S. and the other becomes a Naxalite:

“Richard asked Subhash about India, about its caste system, its poverty. Who was to blame?

“I don’t know. These days everyone just blames everyone else.

“But is there a solution? Where does the government stand?

“Subhash didn’t know how to describe India’s fractious politics, its complicated society, to an American. He said it was an ancient place that was also young, still struggling to know itself. You should be talking to my brother, he said.”
