The yatra that changed India

One of the top stories of the week has been the Rahul Gandhi-led Congress ‘Bharat jodo yatra’. For the Congress, it is perhaps another shot at political revival, an attempt to reconnect with the masses. It also brought back some personal memories because one of the first big national events I got to cover as a young journalist was LK Advani’s rath yatra. So, I thought I would take you once again on a spin down memory lane to a yatra that changed contemporary India’s political dynamics. September 1990.. I was two years into the profession at the times of India in Mumbai, looking for any and every opportunity to cover a big story.
