    It's a thought provoking approach. Mr Nair did touch some very vital aspects of how Asia is trying to ape the west. Consumerism is the buzz word. In India we boast about the large mid income consumers who could afford most of the things and are going for it .Then of course we have a question here Why would they be deprived of those things and is it only west who can enjoy .....
    But the fact of the matter is that the Asians and it's govts will be forced to look at the points which Mr Nair has very forcefully brought out Way to go and all the very best
    A personal note to Mr Nair . We are all very proud of you Chandretta I just got your co's mail about your appearance in BBC Hard talk I look forward to it Love Raji (Sotta's Son )
