Of courage and disgrace

Been late in catching up with news, but couldn't resist posting two contra incidents that happened in two of some of the world's most populated cities. Don't know how many of you caught up with this.

First, a refreshing story of bravey in New York. Subway Hero saves teenager. Read this stuff before starting your day.

And a shameful story in our own backyard - Mumbai. Girl molested in New Year's Eve right in the open, near Gateway of India, by 70 men. What's surprising is it has happened in Mumbai, a city that is relatively - just relative to other Indian cities, mind you - considered safe in India. Guess it takes an India for such incidents to happen.

Sometimes, however hard you try, you just can't be too proud of your country. And your country men.

Tired of reading that Mumbai is safer than other cities. Nope, Mumbai is as deep in sh** as other cities in India.
