1. Two million! Wow. In Germany it was reported there were
"protests all over the country" but whenever they mentioned a specific protest they spoke of "thousands".

After a surprise stop in Afghanistan, Bush was scheduled to arrive in India Wednesday night to begin a tour of south Asia.

Activists of the Students Federation of India demonstrating against the visit of U.S. President George Bush, at Himachal Pradesh University in Shimla on Monday.


De organisatie van moslimgeestelijken Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind had opgeroepen tot de betoging als een aanklacht tegen de Amerikaanse invasies in Irak en Afghanistan.


Among the speakers was Raj Babbar, a Hindu politician and actor, who said: "Whether Hindu or Muslim, the people of India have gathered here to show our anger. We have only one message, killer Bush go home."


While Bush remains more popular in India than he is in many other countries, some here object to U.S. policies, especially in Iraq and Afghanistan

8. Good article:
Go back, Bush!
By: Mahmood Farooqui
When Shankar, the father of modern Indian cartooning, drew a cartoon of the Governor of Bombay, Lord Willingdon, in the 1940s, the latter was so impressed that he obtained the original copy and had it framed. Those were days when rulers and their critics could inhabit the same space and share civilized banter.

Today, however, in order to protest George Bushs visit to India we have to take special permission from the police and carry special badges for our cars. Even then, they would not let us anywhere near him, lest the sight of protesting Indians upset the beloved president and lest he revoke the special side shelter he is to provide us under the American sky.

Nevertheless we went out and marched, even if Bush could not see or hear us. At least those who saw us marching, through Connaught Place, through Ajmeri Gate, through Jantar Mantar, people in their homes and offices, people struck in traffic, probably cursing us, they saw us at least.

The importance of protest lies not merely in achieving your aims but in registering a dissenting voice, particularly before those who are the supposed beneficiaries of this Indo-American entente, the great Indian middle class.

Good article, more here:
