Melting pot

"Melting pot" Continued...

Issue: "Building a city," March 24, 2007

Prakash explains why this building, which houses a Bible college, is nondescript and out-of-the-way: Though New Delhi is an economically progressive city, Hinduism still dominates, so the school prefers to maintain a low profile. Several dozen students from all over India pack into small classrooms for courses on theology and practical ministry. Many have been rejected by their families due to their Christian faith, but desire to return to their towns and villages once they complete their studies.

Prakash says some students will also stay in New Delhi, which he says is a key location for ministry. Since the city is a melting pot of Indian culture, he says: "If you reach New Delhi, you reach India."
