re Julie Bosman's report

"......india has a very limited idea of freedom of speech...."! how can anyone have so much access to travel or information, and be so ignorant?! Ms Bosman must acquaint herself with India's many complexities. to dismiss a rich democracy of 1.5 bn people as not being aware of free speech is strange. and by the way, as i write this, the book is freely available across India.
