Taj and Oberoi

I always felt that the 'anger' at last year's attacks in Mumbai was somehow manufactured. I thought the 'rich' were the ones who got 'affected' at last by terrorism and so they suddenly started jumping up and down — in a manner of speaking.

So, all the nice things about the reopening of the Oberoi apart, there are some simple facts which can't be ignored.

Here's the story from the New York Times:

Well, the story talks about how more 'suites' have been added since they are all the rage apparently ... I won't know.

The bottomline is the price — not more than one percent of Indians would be able to spend 25,000 ($500) to 300,000 ($6,000) rupees per night for one day's stay in these suites.
