The documentary should be renamed "Incredible India!"

It isn't just mind boggling, it is mind blowing to know that such people exist in this days and age.

I believe you said the same thing twice
To get there early is on time and showing up on time is late

I certainly wouldn't consider culture of rape is part of India tradition, although the perpetual sexism, corrupted law enforcers and the inept legal system certainly are some of the primary factors that make sexual assault like an unofficial past time after cricket.

Add skewed gender selection at birth, tacit approval for ogling women - as if it's perfectly ok to do it - by young boys and old men, boys being treated as royalty from birth, vs girls in the family and in turn boys getting a sense of extreme privilege being imprinted ... something went wrong long time ago and it's not easy to fix it .. not now, not soon ..
