Incredible India 20; Babies going Cheap in India – $125

Folks, time to wear your seat-belts. Here comes another instalment of Incredible India, with those Only in India stories.

* A poor woman admitted to a government hospital in the South Indian state of Andhra Pradesh sold her new-born baby for $125. Cheap, na. In the last two years, we have seen about 28 or 29 Tamil movies in theatres here. Each time, we’ve spent over $100 (tickets, gas, toll, lunch, snacks et al). Just think, we could have purchased a Kaurava camp of 100 babies with that money. 🙁

Do you think in India they have a Buy 1 Baby, Get 1 Baby Free scheme.

Think we’re making this up. Read this excerpt on the sale of the baby:

“My financial position is really bad,” a distraught looking Rajitha (20) who could not afford the Rs 2,000 hospital fee said from her bed at the government area hospital in Kothagudem in Khammam district today.

* Yet another Indian dad has been nabbed for allegedly raping his daughter. This time, the helpless girl was four-years-old.

* DMK party in Tamil Nadu is turning into an all-family affair. Besides Karunanidhi, prominent in the party are his two sons M.K. Stalin and M.K. Azhagiri, daughter Thanimozhi and grand-nephew Dayanidhi Maran.

Now, Azhagiri has secured the DMK ticket to contest the Parliamentary polls from Madurai while Dayanidhi Maran will be the DMK candidate from Central Chennai. This is Democracy, Tamil Nadu style from the ruler who has two wives. And the spineless Tamils in Tamil Nadu, who whine about the attacks on the murderous LTTE have no cojones when it comes to questioning the Karunai-illada-Nidhi or his Stalinist coterie.

* Why did Indian IT giant Tata Consultancy Services pay Obama adviser Larry Summers $67,500 for a “Speaking Engagement” on September 21, 2008? We think it was a pure lobbying play. Sure, Summers was not an Obama adviser in September but it was obvious to all but the dolts that Democrats would take the White House and that he’d land a plum position in the new administration.

* North India or South India, death from drinking spurious liquor is so common in India that no one even cares anymore or reads beyond the headline. In the latest hooch tragedy, 27 poor people have died in the country’s capital Delhi over the last two weeks.

Mera Bharat Mahan.

    On one side we read about a mother selling her new born baby for $125/- on the other side we also read about a Indian American CEO earning over $100 Million per annum.

    Why so?
    If anyone delves deeper into the ancient scriptures on Hinduism, they may find some answers to the disparity in wealth and living conditions, due to Past Karma or something of that sort. Though, other religious scriptures may or may not have such explanations.

    What does “Jessica Beilism” (the religion you currently follow) say about the ugly disparity between the haves and have-nots? Responds:

    Jessica Beilism says humanity is barreling down an unsustainable course and that the collapse is drawing nigh and near.

    Even here, tent cities are starting to crop up (for example, in Fresno, California and elsewhere).

    Sori site kuppai owner sori naye…This is really a cheap journalism from you to gain more hits?

    The woman who has sold her baby for $125 have not done that happily, they did not have a choice, poverty is the reason for all.

    It will be too harsh on her to give away the baby, but at least she can be assured the baby will get a better a life. A mom’s cry is fun for you here…[trash talk]….nee enne soru sappadaraya …[trash talk]…

    when you yourdself don’t have single penny in your pocket then you will realize these people’s misery till then have your fun on peoples’ miseries. Responds:

    Stop frothing at the mouth.

    Sarcasm is obviously lost on schmucks like you.

    When you called me as “schmucks” I litterally felt that nee oru [deleted]! to call me sunni. schmucks is not a english word, originally it means Sunni, sulli, lavada…than vinai thannai sudum Responds:

    1. The expression schmuck is used these days mostly to describe folks like you, i.e. jerks or idiots. The original Yiddish meaning hasn’t carried over to English.

    2. You write: schmucks is not a english word

    True, although it’s now an accepted part of the English language.

    The word comes from Yiddish, which incidentally has another nice word that describes you appositely – putzhead. Former New York Senator Al D’Amato defined the word as fool.

    I am seeing from last 40 Years as my memory,the Indian culture and humanity going down day by day,there are only one aim with mother and father to make their kids money making machines.

    India government making plans for the more education,more jobs,and more flexible laws about people of India,but by the education and by the copy of cultured country new generation not thinking about family situations,one family fighting from last 500 years,then find some meaning of life,and if one start from first year for the same him,then how can start like that person,

    last month I made a journey to Rameshwaram,and find the house of Past President of India like a poor person,but a person after finding much personal loan from bank by hook or by crook,first start to make a house by marble stone,then start find a beautiful wife with dowry,and then full life fight for the making payments of loan for house,loan for car and loan for personal this practice if some one selling his or her child,or making rusty jobs by the nature,there are something by human or by humanity.

    Thanks for your kind task for opening eyes of human kind if all think like you.
