I don't see how you can treat the issue of bride-burnings as a farce. It's a
real social tragedy -- one which is illustrative of the predatory nature of
Indian society. Why do you think people leave it?

The reality is that there is no shortage of people wanting to go to the
United States, but there isn't anyone cramming to get into India.

I don't see how the rare school shooting in the USA makes it a worse society
than India. In India, you see mass-shootings occurring in villages, which
just doesn't happen in the USA. That's why such a shooting will make big
news in the USA, while a big shooting in Bihar will only make news for a
day, and then be forgotten.

And to see you cackling over this, and calling it a "farce" shows what you
are. It is because of people like you, that India is a basketcase society. I
don't understand what your own standard of personal civility is, if you
can't see the grave disparity between a backward country like India, and the
average developed country. It's absolutely surreal and ridiculous to see you
overlooking the glaring deficiencies and injustices in Indian society in
sublime ignorance, while attempting to mock or poke fun at the rare incident
in the USA.

Can you not see how it makes you look? This is why I find these
"discussions" on IPI to be just a lot of hot air. Some people with too much
time on their hands, have nothing better to do than to pass gas and vent it
on a mailing list. I don't know what social reform you could possibly be
engaged in, other than feigning some fantasy of social contribution by
typing on a keyboard, to give yourself a feeling of self-worth.

I find these silly debates about 2+2=3 to be very primitive and deluded.
They are flawed on the fundamentals -- I don't see how they can be the basis
for any future social prosperity, justice or even coexistence. Socialism is
a product of malcontents, by malcontents, for malcontents, and to which
malcontents automatically gravitate. No society can be based on it. It just
doesn't work.
