Smita Agarwal, who left India as a teen two decades ago and doesn’t want anything to do with this country, comes back to cover a story. The story is of Meena Mustafa, a woman whose house was set on fire when she was pregnant. In Honor, Thrity talks about casteism, patriarchy, religious fanaticism, crime, and India’s legal setup.
