Poor Chap­ter

India Today - - HEALTH -

Thanks to her TV show Oprah’s Next Chap­ter, Amer­i­can me­dia baroness Oprah Win­frey’s visit to In­dia in Jan­uary is still be­ing talked about. Many called the episode that doc­u­mented her visit to In­dia offensive and ig­no­rant, par­tic­u­larly food blog­ger Rajyasree Sen. “My­opic, un­aware, ig­no­rant and gauche. This was Mid­dle Amer­ica at its best worst,” she wrote in a blog. Sen pointed out the many in­stances of her tact­less be­hav­iour— from ask­ing chil­dren who live in a chawl if they feel cramped, to say­ing aloud,“So I hear some peo­ple in In­dia ‘ still’ eat with their hands.”
