Varshney Reflects on Boston Bombing in The Indian Express

April 26, 2013

Earlier this week, Ashutosh Varshney reflected on the bombing in Boston in The Indian Express. "Just as Delhi and Bangalore are my Indian homes, Boston is my American home," writes Varshney. Boston, he explains to an Indian readership, is an inclusive, international, intellectually rich city. "What explains that some of those who grew up in the US, went through American institutions, lived in inclusive multi-ethnic towns, even took the oath of Citizenship ... would resort to terrorist violence on US soil?"
