Gustav v Bihar

A provocative blog in the Telegraph today saying that Bihar could be India's Katrina....there has certainly been small coverage of the floods in India here too - there was some media criticism of the BBC's Damian Grammaticus's report where he took a place on one of the overcrowded boats rescuing those stranded - an age-old debate over how to report in such situations.

I couldn't find anything about Bihar on Global Voices surprisingly but I did find this rather intriguing post on Big Brother Africa III

I don't know whether Bihar could be India's Katrina but I am certain that people want to read only about what Paris hilton is doing, what Bush is saying, etc...Pity....
