India is not amused with the Lancet report and has reacted along expected lines, calling the report a conspiracy and an attack on medical tourism. The government has even hinted that the report is biased, as a drug company was among its funders, while conveniently choosing to ignore the fact that the two of the authors are from Apollo which pioneered medical tourism in India.
And rubbing salt on to our wounds is an advisory from Britain’s national tourism agency, which labels Indians as impatient and unhuggable. The 2012 Olympics handbook further goes on to describe Indians as a race that regards British food with suspicion. That I will whole heartedly agree with, with the food so bland and over priced we have all the reasons to be suspicious. But seriously, after staying on for 200 years as uninvited guests in our country, these blokes still think we are impatient?
Researchers of the other variety have found, women spend an average of 2 ½ years of their adult life cooking. Men, it has been found spend 14 minutes more a day in the kitchen, but they don’t cook. And when they do, it is usually for themselves. Strangely even after all this slogging, women still find time to try on more than 21,000- items of clothing in their lifetime-but actually buy half of them. Obviously, you don’t marry each guy you date? Sadly if the woman is too busy earning rather than cooking and happens to earn more than her partner, heartbreak awaits her. If your boy friend or husband is earning less than you are, he is most likely to cheat on you. Cheating apparently is a man’s way of trying to restore his gender identity when he feels, it is under threat. Damn, we women never have it good. Don’t earn and perish in the kitchen or earn and perish of a broken heart.
