    The real problem is in how we deal with such apparently sporadic instances of cruelty and discrimination.Once such dastardly incidents are winked at or ped by as unavoidable in a metro, their ulative repercussion and wash back effect cant be avoided in the near future.At worst the NE will even secede!So every single instance must be solved to mutual satisfaction as a national priority!

        Too puzzled. Why would anyone look NE people differently? They are good looking in general. Being from Bangalore I just wont understand. Is Delhi school curriculum has any subtle negative undercurrent towards Chinese looking people? Otherwise they would age slowly, gracefully, they probably do not gang up against others.. Then why? Just too puzzled.

            North Indians are racist by nature and especially towards people who are intellectually, physically and culturally superior to themselves. Twenty years ago I heard a Tamilian being called 'Kalu'. Who is superior - the person from the South of course. Today landlords people from the NE are preferred over North Indians when giving homes on let, they are preferred in jobs all over rather than the crude North Indian and as far as civility and literacy are concerned the ones from the East win hands down.
