Time Magazine Article: “My Own Private India”

http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,1999416,00.html

Can someone seriously tell me why this was allowed to be published? I understand that this guy is seriously perturbed about the fact that his home town has been changed dramatically, but is there a need to throw in stereotypes and judgmental stabs at the entire population?

Were people always this close-minded? I don’t get it.

7/1 Edit:

After talking about this article with a few friends last night, someone brought up a good point… if this article had been about another race or culture that’s been more in the “limelight” of being discriminated against, there would be a larger issue at hand. However, since Indians in general are non-confrontational people, we won’t do shit about this. We’ll poke fun at ourselves because it’s half true, and sometimes we ourselves complain about the tendencies Indians have, and that’s the way it is.
