View from India

"One American professor of environmental studies was quoted as saying “No society that loved its children would create places like the typical suburb or shopping mall” because they result in an “increasingly dysfunctional society absorbed with all things related to economics, growth and the self”. Malls are seriously not good for children thus they are not beneficial for the future of our society. Yet in Bombay they are popping up like worms after a light rain fall on a beautiful green field. If only the birds would come and squeeze the malls out of this city like the worms!"
