Fidel and Cuba

My Lal Salaam to a real colossus of 20th-century rebellion against US imperialism.

The sombre mourning of a majority of the Cuban population not far from the US coast did not seem to matter. But what was utterly disgraceful was the Indian media’s copycat journalism, reproducing the dancing in the streets in the Little Havana quarter of Miami, but caring little in its coverage for the feelings and sentiments of the people in Cuba.
