Mr Prime Minister, Did you sleep well last night ?

Mr Prime Minster,
Did you sleep well last night ? If you did , was it because you stopped watching television? Was it because the Indian media chose not to highlight the plight of families of over 4000 workers detained in Dubai ? Was it because these 4000 odd people were not accused of terrorism and therefore did not deserve to have their share of your sleepless nights ? Was it because these poor workers had no articulate English speaking wives, to explain their viewpoint to media?

ps : Is it surprising to see that the BBC does not seem to report that any one was detained. It has a bland news item. What a contrast to its coverage of the Gurgaon Honda Strike
