The Maid from India

Human beings are born equal, regardless
 of their social standing, color or race…
 Go and say that to the maid from India
 whose complaint has made two democratic
 nations to be at the opposite ends
 of a malicious diplomatic row…
 But maids have no immunities like diplomats…
 Go and declare that to God and let us know, how He reacts…
