I had Muslim friends in my school and University days: one in school and one in the University. All the other friends of mine were Hindus. It did not seem awkward then. It does now. I googled “muslim demographics in india”, and found out that they are nearly 13 percent of the whole population. Transposed upon fifty, the percentage gives the number 6.5, and upon a hundred it’s simple thirteen. Therefore, according to statistics, I must have studied with at least five Muslims every single year of my studies. Well, that did not happen.
