Better off as consumers, Worse off as humans

Baby Afreen and Falak are reasons why we have a billion years to go before we call ouyrselves civilized. Sure, in a few decades India may be the largest economy in the world, but will it really matter? For we still won't be a civilized nation.

We still won't treat the girl child, or for that matter women with dignity and respect. All the production and consumption that's coming to India won't matter for we may be better off as consumers, but worse off as humans!

I don't think there's any greater tragedy than that.
