Do really

The US officials arrested an Indian for ill treating an Indian!! But all our sympathies are for the one being arrested as she was a diplomat and we don’t give a thought about the one who was being ill treated, given less than the minimum wages, kept in slave like condition, given no day off and compelled to work for nearly eighteen hours a day just because she was a house maid. And what was her name?? Oh I remember; Sangeeta. She accused Devyani for giving her slavery like condition, denying her medical allowances and threatening her family with severe consequences if they complain. But the legal action taken against such crime against humanity was more of a blot on India’s pride rather than the crime committed by the diplomat. Class disparity. People say the salary given to Indian diplomats is insufficient to meet US standards of minimum wages ($7.25/hour). If that was the case and she was unable to afford a maid in the she shouldn’t have taken one. Isn’t that simple as it sounds ‘When in Rome do as the Romans do’
