India Now

I.C. - Montage: Indian Child Labourers and Model of Taj Mahal outside the Houses of Parliament (2007)If you thought you saw the Taj Mahal floating along the Thames today, don't panic! It was merely a stunt to signal the launch of India Now, Red Ken's latest propaganda exercise. It's one of those patronising hands-across-the-sea fantasies aimed at updating our perceptions of India, as though none of us reads world news. What about child labour (CLICK)? Or a quarter of India's MP's being investigated by the police for crimes such as rape and murder (CLICK)? Or vibrating condoms (CLICK)? Any bets reality won't be allowed to impinge on the 1,500 events organised for the three-months season of India Now?
