Somebody's meat, somebody's poison

Have we ever thought about Pakistan's side of the story about our dividing it into two? Sri Lanka and LTTE's side of the story about our first funding LTTE and later sending IPKF to finish off LTTE? What Godhra victims have to tell? What dalits have to tell about systemic denial of access to education, health, etc for over 2000 years? what J&K people have to tell about Nehru's refusal to conduct Plebiscite, but using the exact opposite argument to annex Gujarat into India?

These are just a few examples. Each experience has a story to tell. It is incorrect to assume that truth is on one side. Budha said this long ago - middle path and that truth lies in between - but then when did we listen to good people?
