'Sunita Williams as Indian as Santa Claus' - How Indian Media Grovels

Nice point made by a Times of India reader in his letter published in today's editin of ToI Hyderabad. While Sunita is a celebrity and has achieved something that everyone can take pride of, the way India media has adopted her as fully Indian is amazing. One gets to see similar attitudes for Hollywood celebrities who visit India or during Oscar times when we debate which Indian film has a remote chance of making it. Media has a role in encouraging original thought and talent from within the country, the rest (and the world) will then follow.
