News That’s Not Making Headlines In Indian Media Today.

In Environment, Human Rights, India, Strange Happenings on April 22, 2010 at 8:39 pm

Up to one million people in eastern India are living out in the open after a tornado ripped through impoverished villages, flattening tens of thousands of homes, the United Nations and aid workers said on Thursday. (More devastating statistics in the Washington Post)

The IPL shenanigans and Swami Nityananda’s sex scandals are obviously so much more important than 1 million Indians are homeless, have no medical care, whose children are bathing in water contaminated by carcasses, and are at higher risk of becoming victims of human trafficking.

MP Rudranarayan Pani said it best, “Why are we obsessed with IPL rather than with BPL (below poverty line)”
