The "Made in China" syndrome pervades life generally. One need not look too far and wide to find that toy or shirt that is made in China. Signs of a globalized world or ineffective antidumping measures? I had blogged about this issue here.
Came across this interesting piece in the Deccan Herald, a local newspaper in India about Chinese made coffins coming into the market in the State of Kerala:
"A variety of products have flooded Indian market after the liberalisation process was initiated two decades ago and the latest one to make its entry is 'made in China' coffins.
A consignment containing 170 coffins have arrived in Kerala with a Alappuzha district-based company entering into a tie-up with a firm in Shanghai."Just could not resist the irony of the "death" of local manufacturing and the importation of Chinese coffins. Trade does tell us a story.
