Allow Me A Brief Reflection on India

In the light of this:

An extract: “Whine, whine, whine, whine, whine, whine, whine, whine, whine, whine, whine, whine, whine, whine, whine, whine, whine, whine, whine, whine, whine, whine, whine, whine, whine, whine, whine, whine, whine, whine, whine, whine, whine, whine, whine, whine, whine, whine, whine, whine, whine, whine.”

Ad infinitum. Or until his oesophagus finally gives way beneath the weight of all that bile. (Enough to fill a thousand oceans.)

How are the Dalit People getting along these days?

Now, that’s the way you measure the calibre of a country: the way in which it treats its ‘untouchables’, not by the technical quality of the probe it dispatches to Mars.

Long Live Phoolan Devi.

Or maybe not cos she is dead.

‘Raj’ is a really good word to use in scrabble, by the way.  

And if you want to read a magical, kaleidoscopic novel about India, the Great Game and the North West Frontier, then you could do worse than Rudyard Kipling’s  ‘Kim’.
