Different View of India: Pictures of Indian cities you don’t see in overseas media.
Balaji Viswanathan
In the western media, we often see only one type of Indian image. Crowded, dirty and polluted. The pictures would be often taken from random sewage canals and slums. The problem is that those underbellies exist in every part of the world. Shanghai can be like this

在西方媒体中,我们总看到印度形象是这样的:拥挤、肮脏、污染。照片随机拍摄下水道贫民窟。问题是,世界每个地方都有不入眼的部分。上海可能是这样的:

or like this:

也可能是这样的:

This is not to deny that Shanghai and other great world cities have nicer infrastructure than the Indian metropolises. It is just that we are seeing things in binary instead of shades of gray. Indian cities sure have more than their share of dirtiness. Those are the reality and so are the ones below. The problem is that if only one type of pictures are shown it totally distorts the reality. Here is the other side.
Mumbai skyline:

不是否认上海和其他世界大城市比印度大城市的基建更好。只是我们看到的是二元的而不是灰色的事物。印度城市肯定更脏。这些是现实,下面的也是现实。问题是,如果只有一种图片展示现实,那就完全扭曲了现实。这里有另一种。

India is moving. Not one or two cities, but the whole nation. By not looking at the pictures above we get the distorted view that India is not progressing. If a media house shows a picture of New York, which of the following would they normally use?

印度正在前进。不是一两座城市,而是整个国家。不看上面的图片,我们就会得到印度没有发展的扭曲观点,如果一家媒体公司展示纽约的照片,他们会选择下面那张照片呢?

Both of them exist in the same city, but we use only one of those pictures as representative. Same for most cities in the world. However, when it comes to the Indian cities, we take only the negative images as default art to portray and that is a travesty to people who are working to build the country. Let’s be fair in representing cities of the world as that impacts investments and poverty alleviation. Romantic skylines for one city and a dirty sewer for the other city is not fair.
We need to be real. But, that doesn’t mean dwelling in pessimism.

这两张图片都是同一座城市,我们只用它们其中一张作为代表。世界的大多数城市也是一样的。然而,当谈及印度城市,我们只取负面的图片,默认贫穷,而这是对那些正努力建设国家的人的嘲笑。让我们公平地展现城市,否则会影响投资和扶贫。用浪漫的摩天大楼代表一座城市,用肮脏的下水道代表另一座,这是不公平的。

我们需要真实。但那不意味着悲观厌世。
