Free TVs for all!

I don't have much to say about this story (in which the government of the southern state, Tamil Nadu, distributed color televisions to "poor" citizens), but it does include a rather excellent sentence somewhat typical of Indian journalism:

"This was only the first phase and would get over in a few days. Just as all guests at a wedding do not feast at the same time, the distribution of television sets could not be done in one go."
