Go to any airport in the country you will see masked mass.
As if we are living in a gas chamber.
Why? Swine flu?
How many are infected? Little over 1700...
Now don't ask me what is the population of the country!!!
But with 47,000 confirmed cases and nearly 500 deaths...and that too in s a country of 28 crores only there is absolutely no panic in the US.
But here in India with a population three times that of US, just about 1700 cases and 28 deaths has created a mass(and mask)hysteria !!!
It's not that we are more alert and concious about this outbreak than others, its only because we have more than 130 TV channels and
countless newspapers in all the 15 official languages !!!"
We love to forget the increasing figures of deaths due to diarrhea, dysentery, tuberculosis, road traffic accidents in the country.
Those are probably not fashionable enough today.
