    The link to the Indian government’s reaction to racial attacks in Australia tells us that if one is able to impact society economically,the un-listened voice often gets louder and can never then be unheard.
    Noting how the Indian health tourism industry is very much dependent on African governments’ use of the facility, it may me the leverage available to get India to react positively to these attacks.
    Given India’s rise to economic power and its eventual dependence on resources, which will invariably be found predominantly in Africa, it is up to African governments to recognize the capacity they have to change not only the rules of the game but in this age the game itself.

    A very thought provoking and informative article. I did not realise how racist Indian society was till, I left it. Shocking accounts of unfairness and injustice faced by innocent people. It does not come as a surprise of various ways Indian govts adopting to brush the racialism issue under the carpet, it is very much of an approach applied to all the other pressing matters of and within the Indian society.

    Excellent article; what will it take to allow Indian society to acknowledge and confront its present racism? I believe there are many parallels in the multicultural landscape of Canada
