60,000 children disappear in India every year - more than 150 a day.
Where do they go? Seriously?
Into the pot

India is a very patriarchal society. Kids start working from a very early age and the money they make is usually taken by the father, who might also beat them for no reason. So a lot of them end up fleeing home. As there are no reliable registers and the police is useless there is no way of finding them back.
Such a vibrant nation...
Is India the worst country on the planet?
But... but... we have a Space Program! And nukes!
How can they even estimate how many children disappear every year? Children born in slums are hardly kept tabs of.
What a racist thread. I can't believe you all. If you were to replace Injin with Black you'd all be up in arms.
Saying Injins beat their kids for no reason is like saying Gays deliberately get AIDS, and black can't help but tap dance, and Chinamen have to eat dogs.

North Korea usually wins that contest.
Clearly, they're being eaten by tigers.
BTW, just where DOES curry come from?
R10--There are certain cultural norms in non-western nations that seem outrageous to westerners. I'm not sure about beating children, but there are other practices in India that seem barbaric to us. Pointing out something like this is not racist.
India has the largest number of child laborers under the age of 14 in the world.
If they practiced birth control and stopped having so many fucking kids this wouldn't be a problem. It's such a common sense solution, but in the third world it's just ignored.
They die and are thrown into the Ganges.

It's carefully harvested from the armpits of elderly Indian women whose armpits haven't seen water since their last dip in the Ganges years ago.
In the USA about 800,000 children go missing every year...
The population of the USA is 314 million.
That is 800,000/3124,000,000 or
0.0025477707006369 = 0.25% about a quarter of one percent.
Inja has 21,900,000 million children go missing every year (60,000 X 365)
The population of Inja is 1.2 BILLION.
That is 21,900,000/1,200,000,000 or
0.01825 = 1.8%
That is nearly 10 times the rate as in America.
Of course Inja doesn't have abortions, so a lot of the missing kids are just murdered in America.
You're saying that nearly a million children go missing in the U.S. every year? 800K? Hmm.
Can we talk about how disgusting the Ganges river is?
*Nearly 800,000 children younger than 18 are missing each year, or an average of 2,185 children reported missing each day.
*More than 200,000 children were were abducted by family members.
*More than 58,000 children were abducted by nonfamily members.
*115 children were the victims of “stereotypical” kidnapping. These crimes involve someone the child does not know or a slight acquaintance who holds the child overnight, transports the child 50 miles or more, kills the child, demands ransom, or intends to keep the child permanently.
Apropos of nothing, I'm watching King Kong on TV and it's chopped up as usual (You should have watched what they did to Sherlock Holmes 1)
Do Naomi Watts and the beast have sex in Central Park? She's got an awfully big mouth. And why doesn't she have hard nipples during her screaming scenes?
It's all fake right?
The American children referred above are only temporarily missing, almost all of them. The Indian children are gone for good. Most of them are sold to work off their family's debts.
The world knows little of the gruesome nature of the bottom part off this wretched society.
Waiting for someone to blame the British...
This isn't supposed to be an anti-India thread. Or an anti-Indian thread, even though after knowing and working with at least 30 Indians I have yet to meet one who wasn't arrogant, incompetent and inherently dishonest. This is a thread about missing children. And how, apparently, in India they are considered to approximate chicken rather than beef. Otherwise they wouldn't be missing. When was the last time anyone commented about a cow missing in India?
R21 clearly needs to check his numbers and his math.
OP, Are you saying that children of the poor, especially under valued girls, are sold into slavery, some of which is sexual?
Somebody must've told them that children should not be seen or heard.

60,000 a year, not a day.
I'll have to agree that lying seems to be engrained in their culture. In Pakistan, it's taken to a whole other level - Pakistanis are notoriously the least trustworthy in business.
However I've notice the same with the Chinese.
This is strictly in the business world.
India tops china for child labor? I thought that everything was made by Chinese children?
"In the USA about 800,000 children go missing every year..."
I call that a good start.
I knew a Pakistani who was in the import/export business and was a great, honest guy. He said to me once, "don't ever do business with the Russians; dey will kill you."
It's a lie of course. The USA has nothing like that statistic.
[quote]Pakistanis are notoriously the least trustworthy in business.
You would not have made that claim if you had ever done business with a Mormon.
Curry is a generic term primarily employed in Western culture to denote a wide variety of dishes whose origins are Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Sri Lankan, Thai or other Southern and Southeastern Asian cuisines, as well as New World cuisines influenced by them such as Trinidadian or Fijian.

Soylent Green is people!
Child beggars. Maimed first.
Body parts for Rich needing transplants.
More gas emitted in Bhopal?
There are more children living in abject poverty...starvation level...than the entire continent of Africa
shocked me when I saw that
India is egregiously poor.
My Pakistani co-worker once told me that poverty in Pakistan and Afghanistan does not even compare to India.
He claims the reason is that it is engrained in Muslim cultures that immigrants in the West give remittances to family back home. Apparently, in Hindu tradition remittances are frowned upon. Self-reliance and singular responsibility is the norm. Surprised me because I always believed Hinduism to be rooted in generosity.
They are used to harvest their organs, kidneys, hearts etc. I am not shitting you

Nepal is worse
People think Nepal is this magical, mystical country because of the Himilayas and a large number of Buddhists, but it's utterly corrupt, lawless, filthy and full of children doing very hard labor like using jackhammers on the sides of mountains to carve out roads. It's a libertarian paradise. All filth goes directly into the rivers, leading to the most polluted waterways outside of India. It's very droughty much of the year. The majority of people are not meat-eaters, so they do not practice animal husbandry (ie chickens) for food and the land is too poor for agricultural. So poor nutrition is added to the mix. (yes, you can get chicken if you are a tourist, but every village should be keeping chickens for meat and eggs. Yet this is not so)
In higher elevations, people smear dirt on their skin to protect from the sun's rays. So everybody is filthy the higher you travel. People throw food wrappers at their feet. There are no garbage pails.
If you wonder what a libertarian country would look like, go to Nepal. But make sure to get your immunoglobulin shots.
They go to Pakistan and Bangladesh.
r18 you can say the same thing about usa
Vampires. Im not kidding.
Many are sold into, or abducted into the sex industry, or, as posted above, into domestic slavery.
I was at college with a wealthy Indian woman, whose arrogance and condescension were unsurpassed in my close acquaintance. She styled herself as a sort of radical, socialist feminist who had ''escaped'' her conservative parents who wanted her married to some guy.
She enthused about the servants who ran her parents home in India and how they did not need to be paid, only fed.
Puzzled, I asked her how her ''socialism'' allowed her to support the keeping of servants / unpaid slaves. She informed me that these women and children had no other opportunities, and as long as they weren't beaten or raped, it was a good life for them.
That's the Indian middle-class' attitude to their fellow Indians of lower castes.

No. In the UK, curry is used to denote a wide variety of dishes. In the U.S., curry refers to a spice. We don't call all Indian, Pakistani, Sri Lankan, Thai and other Asian foods, "a curry," like they do in the UK. We never say, "I'm having a takeaway curry tonight."
Curry is a powder in the US
[quote] That's the Indian middle-class' attitude to their fellow Indians of lower castes.
I've heard the same attitude from Filipinos about "people from the mountains" who have never seen a TV. They were much derided and almost considered subhuman. Filipinos I worked with lamented the lack of household help who merely needed to be fed in the US .
Then why aren't there more Indian, or South Asian young men in porn?
R25, apropos of nothing, what the hell thread did you wander in from, anyway? Did they kick your ass out of the "I-Really-Wanna-Change-The-Subject" Thread?
r55, if you can't identify the specific blend of spices you're using beyond calling it 'curry powder', then you are using the term generically, as per the wiki definition you take issue with. There are countless different curries.
oops, meant r54, not r55
R47, Can you provide any details? At what age are they forced to donate organs?
Kali Ma! Kali Ma!
They are here at Pankot Palace, where they dig for the fourth and fifth Sankara stones. Soon Kali will rule the world!
R61, are you dense? We're talking murder, not volunteerism.
R64, Excuse me? Of course I'm not dense. I've just totally unfamiliar with organ donation, except for kidneys, of live people.
Wouldn't the organ have to be fully developed to be transplanted? So at what age is the child murdered? Where does the child live until that time?
R64, Is this the type of case you're referring to?
Have you seen the video "Dirty, Pretty, Things?" I'm not up on everything in the world, yet. That's why I rely on DL for a summary.
