With all due respect Anand Y. There is NOTHING "psychosomatic" About what is visible and in this case the article is on pollution in India...I've been there and had I stayed outside any longer that I did, I'd need breathing treatments! Psychosomatic is also something that one conjures up with in their mind with no sound basis. This is real and obesity anywhere in the world does not fall under the codex for a Psychosomatic issue either...Meaning, not conjured up. it is as a result of over eating and no exercise.

Well by the looks of the place if you don't live in the Taj Mahal, you pretty much see nothing but one mass shanty town.

Is a really filthy place, and I hope for a change before they destroy all nature there.

Further, has anyone given a thought to the two greatest gifts that India has given to the world - namely the Yoga and Ayurveda? The whole world today is looking towards India seeking ways and means for better living. So what is many other countries are cleaner, as long as they do not know how to live properly and have no peace of mind? One survey conducted by US itself shows that more than a third of Americans are obese, many of them morbidly obese. Has anything been done to contain obesity and the related disorders and diseases? Just as air pollution is a health hazard, so are obesity and other psychosomatic disorders. The researchers would do well to focus their attention towards what is happening in their own backyard.

As an Indian watching the so called research of most of the western countries for several decades, this article comes as no surprise. The innumerable achievements by India are never highlighted. As rightly pointed out by Sri V we use a fraction of energy, resources or food that is used by the US. And, do not forget the enormous amount of food that is wasted in US. We have never forgotten the action by the US governments when they used to buy wheat and other food grains from the farmers and dumped them in the deep sea lest the prices in the international market would come down!

If US says anything on the subject, it is like the devil quoting scriptures.

The latest in the series to denigrate India is to channelise money through Churches supported by the NGOs (Non Governmental Organisations) to ensure support to the Antinuclear protestors, most of them Christians, because, India is NOT toeing the line of US in acceding to the demands and conditions of its nuclear suppliers. In this particular instant, Russia has supplied the reactor and the US is not able to digest it.

Instead of writing such totally biased reports alone, institutions would do well to highlight the achievements as well of this country.
