The one positive stereotype about India that actually proves to be true is the spirituality found there which was primarily Oprah’s focus.
You just have to LOVE the juxtaposition of the photo and the main headline. This sums up Trinidad and Tobago PERFECTLY!!!!
As for a story about the foreign artists who come here. Well, that love affair’s shelf life is only as long until the first assault, rape, burglary that happens to them. It is not the crime itself that makes them fall out of love. They know that unfortunate crimes happen even in their first world countries. No, it’s the ineptitude of the police and the constipation of the justice system that makes them cool considerably towards the land of calypso. Of course, if you really want them to flee, make them use the public health facilities.
That aforementioned, is me thinking of the best case scenario for why the Indians are offended at her because the worse case would be they think that because she is a woman and black, they can intimidate Oprah while they keep their polite smiles on for the white, male CBS directors and white male Hollywood execs and the Brangelinas of the world, who highlight all the poverty and inequality of India more often than Oprah ever did.
Modern India indeed!
In true modern societies the media does not have to play sycophant to the Government and spread propaganda to the world. It is not just the Caribbean and India that should take note but America too. Unless you are living in utopia, true patriots of their country always have a love hate relationship with it. Oh and it is an "out of the closet" relationship. You share both what you love and hate about your country with the world in an effort to appeal to be honest and forge true understanding on a global scale.
