Somebody feels insulted about something
POSTED: November 12, 2019
Whenever I visit India I find myself saving items from newspapers. I use these to help me to locate myself, and to remember the differences between cultures, and the ways in which these differences express themselves.
In October I saved this article from the New Indian Express, which we get delivered every morning. It concerns the disgraceful behaviour visited upon a dignitary at a public (and televised) event; behaviour which took three days to recover from.
Someone had had him seated at a corner on the dias. Imagine how that must have felt.
