| Immature Indian Press?|
I am concerned by the number of stories carried by Indian press
criticizing an article in Time Magazine showing the prime-minister
of India in not-so-good light.
C'on people. Until we start criticizing and rediculing the leaders, India won't become a mature democracy.
The parivar (coterie) seems to be upset that Time Magazine disclosed Vajapayee's drinking
habits (drinking is frowned upon in India). I say it is not as embarrassing as the drinking habits of one of his predecessors
FYI: Morarji Desai,
a former prime-minister of India, and a distinguished parliamentarian,
practiced urine therapy.
Perhaps the problem is not with the press, but with the people.
What's the role of press in a nation with low literacy and where even smaller percentage that
actually buys newspapers?
