Harvest of Hate: Gujarat Under Siege is the product of a rare inter-religious partnership. The authors, pioneers in multi-faith spirituality of social engagement, have been at the forefront of the humane responses to the horror that stalked Gujarat. The articles that comprise this volume have emerged largely from a multi-religious pilgrimage of compassion they, along with seventy other religious leaders, undertook to Gujarat in the wake of the communal carnage that erupted in that state. It is this that accounts for the power and poignancy of their response to the massive man-made tragedy in the land of the Mahatma. The book also contains contributions by Arundhati Roy and Harsh Mandar. Together, they lay bare before the reader the abhorrent architecture of a man-made tragedy, seen largely through the eyes of the victims; for they know the truth best. An enthusiastic foreword by Former Prime Minister of India I.K. Gujral lends completeness to this volume.
