“ALL GREAT CITIES ARE SCHIZOPHRENIC”, said Victor Hugo. Bombay has multiple personality disorder. During the riots, the printing presses were running overtime. They were printing visiting cards, two sets for each person, one with a Muslim name and one with a Hindu name. When you were out in the city, if you got stopped your life depended on whether you answered to Ram or Rahim.
Schizophrenia became a survival tactic.
