The business of San Josť need not concern anyone in India, where bride-burning and similar atrocities are far more pressing issues.
Aside from the racist offensive remark, many people from the Bay Area who shop in San Jose do visit other countries. There is a large successful and contributing Indian community in San Jose and Silicon Valley.
How many bride-burning stories have appeared in recent news stories? Actually, the commenter should look at how the story of the month is about insisting that India take tougher stances on rape, something to be commended.

Has anyone noticed that grocery employees do not think it's their job to bag shit anymore? Even when u pay this hefty premium for a "bag" they look at you like "uhhhhh don't u know we don't bag shit anymore?" Just an observation.
