The tragedy in New Orleans has been in and out of the Indian papers. Of interest is that India donated $5 million and Bangladesh $1 million to U.S. relief efforts, a gesture that makes me think of El Salvador sending troops to Iraq, just trying to stay on Uncle Samâ€™s good side. But perhaps thatâ€™s not fair; whether symbolic or not, thatâ€™s a lot of rupees. In any case, todayâ€™s headlines show the Indian mediaâ€™s real priorities: on the front page of BOTH English language newspapers are articles about Andre Agassiâ€™s family life (â€œTinies Before Tennis!â€).
