An interesting film...in that Mr Savage wants to paint everyone with the same brush!!!

He really needs to accept that India is not America...not by any stretch of the imagination.

He addresses the legal system and completely ignores the [many] religious institutions...in India, the legal and religious institutions are intricately linked.

Obviously, time was an issue - such a huge subject to cover in 16 minutes! Treat it as an American introduction to an Indian subject...it merely skims the surface!
