I do not know if any women planning to visit India in the coming months are reading these words, but the Minister of Tourism has a message for you. Mr. Mahesh Sharma has a few suggestions for all you foreign women who seek to spend a few weeks, and dollars, in his fair nation. “They should not venture out alone at night in small places, wear skirts,and they should click the photo of the cab, and send it to friends.” I assume in case you got raped or killed.
He also emphasizes to foreign ladies, do not “wear short skirts of short dresses.” However, he does want every foreign woman to have a great time in India. Perhaps, they should wear a burqa and then get Americans angry at them, not to speak of the French.
