Racism Updated

In my previous post I wrote about Indian maturity in dealing with racism. It seems the confidence of Indians is really sky-high to tackle these minor issues. The tourism department of India has invited Jade Goody to have a free-stay to know more about India. The effort is laudable as well as shows a way how to deal with racist mind. It has been reported also that Jade Goody is indeed planning to visit India and already visited Indian Highcommission in London in regards to that.

The advertisement, published in The Times and The Gurdian, came up on behalf of Incredible India, the official tourism promoter on behalf of Indian Ministry of Tourism.
The advertisement read:
Being one of the world's oldest civilizations, our land is one where the ancient and the modern co-exist and a multitude of religions live in harmony. We have a modern thriving culture and offer an amazing wealth of sights and sounds, tastes and textures making our country a place like no other. ... As a beauty therapist, you may be especially interested in visiting one of the many spas where you can cleanse your stresses away, enjoy yoga in the land that invented it and experience Ayurvedic healing which promotes positive health and natural beauty.
I feel whoever accuses anybody else to racism, should take a similar effort to make things straight. That's exactly how the next century is going to be shaped !!!!
