Sure, it's not clear how many go unreported in either country and in India the stats are slightly on the rise (22,000) while they are declining in the US (down to about 85, 000), still, looking at those numbers, I don't think Americans should feel in a strong position to condescend to other nations. I guess it's a natural human reflex to believe one's own country is superior or better in many ways but every country has their problems and their "claim to shame".
i was having a similar argument against people from usa at tennis forum.......i wondered what's their interest with problems of other countries........they were so ignorant about india, i had to shove a lot of information up their asses........
