"In 2004 poverty India had actually 10 per cent more than estimated with poverty in rural India at 42 per cent and not 28 per cent as was estimate earlier," the report said. 
So the overall poverty figure is 37 per cent and not 27 per cent as was estimated in 2004.  The only silver lining is that there is no change in urban poverty which remained at 27 per cent.

But for the Hanukkah news at the end, it is a free-for-all bashing of "hindu-right-wing-extremists".
While the first two are evangelical christian website news, the third one, from more mainstream news agency, Times, is indistinguishable from the others in treatment. The Times says thus- "Critics are happy to see the end of a uniform that they say was inspired partly by the European fascist movements of the 1920s. The RSS, which trained the killer of Mahatma Gandhi, has been banned three times for inciting violence and is still often accused of fomenting ethnic and religious hatred."

Educative truthful reporting!

It reveals how these buggers are misusing technology to achieve their selfish ends.
