Attitude Difference

London has a bombing - many many people die - the whole of Europe has a 2 minute silence in their loving memory.
India has a bombing - many many people die - India has a 1 day bandh in their loving memory - all businesses shut, shops closed, essential services disabled, violence to enforce the bandh, and many many more people die.

  1. the essence of understatement vs overstatement perhaps ?

    however, there is also the factor of when a bomb exploded in mumbai a year(or was it two), we got on with lives within the hour.
    people here are still in mourning.
