Spanish media mocked India’s growth
The thinking of the western countries about India from the old times is well known.

Whether it is India’s nuclear program or the foreign media has given a chance to enter the top 5 economy, leaving Britain behind. India He has tried his best to downplay the achievement and made fun of the achievement. Once again the same has been seen when a Spanish newspaper has tried to make fun of India’s fastest growth. Indians have reacted strongly to this effort on social media.
“The hour of the Indian economy,” says La Vanguardia, a leading Spanish daily. Quite cool that the world is taking notice, but the cultural caricaturing, a snake charmer to represent India, is an insult. Wonder what it takes for this to stop; maybe global Indian products? pic.twitter.com/YY3ribZIaq

what is this article
In fact, a Spanish newspaper has published a report on the front page about India’s rapid growth. The title of this article written in Spanish is Time of Indian Economy.

what is the matter
In fact, for a long time, the people of western countries used to call India as the country of snake charmers. With this, he used to try to show how backward and far from civilization Indians are. A large number of Western historians were trying to prove that India was a rude and backward country before they reached India.

Such efforts have already been made
Earlier, when the Indian economy had overtaken Britain, then in some articles, India was repeatedly addressed as a colony of Britain. At the same time, in a BBC cartoon on the success of India’s Mars Mission, India was shown knocking on the door outside the Mars Elite Club with a farmer and a cow. There was a lot of opposition to this cartoon too.
