Summary:
"... [T]he pilgrimage site of Kalo Dungar or Black Mountain, situated in the Rann of Kutch, Gujarat, provides a micro-example of current political issues in India today, where by the 'unity in diversity' of the country is slowly being broken-down destroying any hope of communal peace. It is argued that this trend is aiding the slow break-down of communal harmony and of syncretic and pluralistic practices in the region."--Container.
