Will India Split?

I have been, for some time now, been crying myself hoarse abt the looming threat to the integrity of the Indian state - the growing disparity between the forward states and the so-called cow belt. Some people have even called me a secessionist for that... here is an article by Rajdeep Sardesai on the same thing.

I think even Sardesai is overlooking the influence of an actual change in power equations, as against the apparent one that he talks abt, that will happen if the constituencies are delineated in 20 years. This is a bigger threat than even what Sardesai says.
