This video, found at Neatorama as so much of my stuff is, shows a truly horrifying thing: This baby is not wearing pants. Look, I know India is a country with some poverty issues, but if they could afford a pink blanket for this baby to lie on, surely they could afford a pair of pants.
Now, before you go thinking I am being a touch elitist, let me point out that it doesn't have to be pants. They could have taken the pink blanket and fashioned a dress, and that would have have been fine. A skirt, a more traditional Indian sari, even a toga would have all been possible, but no. This poor baby has to suffer the indignity of running around with a bare bottom.
Frankly, it is this type of parenting that is bringing the world to a quick end. I think there is no excuse for this type of thing, and I motion that a non-profit "Pants for India" organization be founded. Surely we wealthy Americans can spare a few pairs of precious pants for the children.
Anyway, if you think you can stand the heartbreak of seeing a bare-assed baby crawling about, please watch the video. With any luck, your heart will be as touched as mine and you will take action.
