India: Babri Masjid, memory and Syncreticism

On 6th December 1992, Babri Masjid, a mosque built in the 16th century was destroyed by fundamentalists. Synchroni-Cities remembers the day with much poignancy. “I was twelve years old when the mosque was destroyed. Why do I keep rememebering it? Because though I know it is a fantasy, an idealization, I do remember the world being a better, less fraught place before that date.”
