    There's more to learn about India than meets the eye. The poem is like a thin stick with proper nouns; it looks excellent overall. (Report) Reply

    This ulimate question in Indian societal mores seems strange to a Westener. The Westener would say yes, everyone is a human. One is no better than another. That does not not seem to be the case in India. A compelling poem.+++10
