The Indian state of Gujurat has witnessed the worst clashes between Hindus and Muslims for more than a decade.

Within the last 19 months more than 1000 people have died; serious doubts have been raised about the probaty of the states judicary, its Police force and the Right wing Hindu party which governs it.

In this week's Sunday Feature the Gujurati writer and film maker Ruchir Joshi travels to the state capital Ahmedabad to talk to victims of the violence, the peace campaigners and the friends and family that still make him think of the city as a home from home.
