India is very safe. No worries mate.

Violence is on the rise all over the world. Often, like in the US, places like malls, schools,churches.

I am a Canadian - Canada does not give it citizens "right to bear arms" - that is a US constitutional right that is being misused by NRA folks. Canadians are very peaceful, not gun-trotting folks.

Cheers

Do you have the right to bare arms?


Sorry, I'll get my coat.

That's right we have 'guns' not 'arms' or even bare arms in this chilly time of year.:D And we obtain the right/privledge to bear(in this case meaning to carry for target practise or hunting purposes) through competency courses & security checks. Owning guns for sporting purposes has no bearing on whether the citizens of a Nation are peaceful .... or not.:)

As I understand it, every traveller who has been to India has been robbed, drugged, assualted or killed ...

When we were married in India a few years ago we were accompanied by 11 friends from the US. The parent's of one of the couples who came were very apprehensive about their traveling to India.

They would get comments along the lines of: "You know, in the mornings they drag the dead people out of the streets..."

WTF!?!?

To Evaluate Risk, Compare Apples to Apples -- not to Oranges

Canada doesn't have near the problems the US does with gun-toting psychos.


the United States has about 9 times more people than Canada;
India has about 3.5 times more people than the United States;
India has about 30 times more people than Canada.

Population numbers do not prove everything, but one has to keep these numbers in mind when evaluating the newspaper accounts of weird events. Is India 3.5 times more violent than the US? Is the US 9 times more violent than Canada? Is India 30 times more violent than Canada?

The relative ages of the populations also makes a difference: generally the magnitude of violence correlates with the number of people in any group between the ages of 14 and 29.

In this day and age, it probably would not be wise to "advertise" oneself too obviously as belonging to a group that al Qaeda and its affiliates have announced an intention to annihilate [of course, that includes an awfully lot of groups].

It's all a big international plot by the airline companies. All those aircraft returning empty use less fuel!

Has anybody mentioned the right to arm bears yet?

That's only if you get a package tour. And please remember, the criminals are well paid and you should not give them any tips.
