Another story in the NYT about the dirt and filth in India. Has anyone noticed how the principal character in such sob-stories is ALWAYS a "minority"? I wonder if one can do a meta-analysis of all such articles in the NYT in the past 10 yrs, and check this for a fact. It's stealthily pushing the propaganda how minorities are exploited in India when they are really such peaceful, hardworking people! Also, this story deserves a front-page in the NYT (at least the web edition), and not when dozens of Hindus are charred to the bone by explosions caused by the same peace-loving "minority' community...
