60,000 children disappear in India every year - more than 150 a day.

Where do they go? Seriously?

How can they even estimate how many children disappear every year? Children born in slums are hardly kept tabs of.

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.

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.

You're saying that nearly a million children go missing in the U.S. every year? 800K? Hmm.

*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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

Nepal is worse

by Anonymousreply 4812/10/2014

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.

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."

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 .

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.

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?

Looks like India finally solved its population growth crisis.

It's their version of the one-child policy. They had to do something...without birth control and condoms, it's out of control.
