    I think it's too far-fetched to link India's poverty to their deaths...both were drug addicts and died of overdose....

    Having said that and as a person who has traveled to almost all the nook and corner of the country,i must say that Poverty in India is really horrific and to such an extent that it feels sickening to core.

    That is why i never recommend my foreign friends to come to India.

    Lol!

    But this man was suffering from bouts of depression and was on regular doses of anti-depressants.If he was suffering so much,he should have been seeing Psychiatrist in UK instead of visiting India.Visiting a 3rd world country means witnessing a lot of human sufferings,which can only aggravate depression.

    :LOL: You missed another mental case reported in the story, the step father who suggested it in the first place. Pathetic people.

    They were dug zombies and got them cheaply and easily in India. Being zombies, they took an over dose. Period.

    First those multiple rape accidents and now this. I feel sorry for you. Luckily these are surely some isolated incidents. Together with terrorist attacks like those in Mumbai these could potentially harm your image in Europe.

    Looks like we are missing indicators for different silent problem, availability of prescription drugs with out oversight. It looks like jugaad can be done to get Unprescribed drugs either by managing the doctor or pharmacist.

    Awwww.... as if rapes dont happen in Europe?I am not justifying such social evils, but the wrath of such psychopaths are suffered world over by its victims. Unfortunately cases such these should not be used by media to form biased opinions.
    Climb a few steps more towards the top and you will get a better vantage point towards the world.

    such drugs are easily available in market, and nobody even cares to ask for prescriptions, only potent sedatives and anaesthetics require any prescription..though the scenario is changing and many chemists ask for prescription

    as if we care for perception of europe towards India, rapes happen in europe too or at least you can see a street side sex in many european countries ...but no that's just paid rape or sex whatever?
    and yes after the colonization and subsequent looting of Indian treasure, and now the black money stashed in foreign banks europeans are just a menace to us.

    Good Image is where money is, even if these incidents do not take place British media would have been reporting on poverty or toilets. They have made up their mind on how to project india's image. Only reason they are able to continue is because there is no resistance.
    Only this month I have realised these reportings are not random but rather agenda driven. As more and more Indians realise this, it may become difficult for Brits to continue with targeted campaign.

    What if somebody committed suicide seeing the level of idiocy in your post? That wouldn't look good for your image or your country's. :taunt1:

    P.S Breathe easy my boy, my name is not in potential/ risk of suicide list. :lol:

    How considerate. :aww:

    Btw you should try BBC for job, you'll have great fun there.

    Now.

    1. Did you get an F in Reading & Comprehension. Try post #7.
    2. The "Rape Card".
    Let me educate you, son.
    The rape rate in Finland is almost 10 times that of India.
    For 2010 (link)
    Per 100k; Finland= 15.8; India= 1.8;
    Your countries Rape rate is higher than most your neighbors too say Russia =3.8;
    Sorry to burst your bubble.

    PS: To the other members: Guys cut him some slack; his idea of India comes from Holywood movies and Western Media. He probably thinks we are snake charmers. :lol:
