The Rev. John Yesunatha Das, a Pentecostal Pastor, calls himself "buffalo color"—black. Though his wife is Brahmin, their daughter Feba inherited his dark skin, a visible sign that he's a Dalit, or untouchable.

As a product of a mixed-caste marriage, Feba doesn't have a caste, but when the second-year honors history major started university, most the girls didn't speak to her because of the color of her skin.

The church needs to open its doors to the broken bodies of Christ.

Of all the body parts I didn’t expect my busted knee to affect, it was my eyes. But I’m here to tell you that the first thing that changes when you’re hobbling around is what you see. Specifically, what I see are obstacles: stairs, curbs, uneven pavement, short drops—all of which, if not negotiated properly, result in exquisite little bursts of pain.

Those least responsible for our flood of climate change concerns are bearing the brunt of the storm.

A year after the twin blows of Hurricane Irene and the great Halloween nor’easter, New Yorkers were treated to what must surely be the worst revival to ever hit the Great White Way. In painfully familiar waves, two vast storms hit town in late October and early November. The devastation wrought by Hurricane Sandy went far beyond Irene’s worst, and the follow-up nor’easter a week later only added to the region’s misery as thousands endured a second week without power or heat.
