The current issue of the Indian diplomat being arrested in the US gives one of the clearest pictures of a cultural clash that doesn’t have a good solution.
Here are just a few of the skeleton facts in case you haven’t followed along:
An Indian diplomat, Devyani Khobragade, was arrested for visa fraud, essentially because her Indian domestic staff was paid far below the amount stipulated on her visa application. Ms. Khobragade was handcuffed in public and subjected to a private strip-search by the US law authorities as per their norms. A later development was that the domestic help’s husband and children were evacuated from India with the help of the US.
