Suicide in Gandhi’s land

Alexander Zaitchik continues his series for eXile writing this time about suicides:

You have three seconds: Name the world capital of suicide. No, it’s not Tokyo and its cubby-holed corporate kamikazes. It’s not some vodka-heated TB quarantine Siberian sinkhole. It’s not Alaska with its eternal night and 98 percent male population. It’s not some lower Midwest rust-belt town running on AFDC checks and backyard meth-lab fumes.

A disturbing spotlight to shine on an India that’s supposedly shining.
