Indian Diplomat Case and our Government
In my view Devyani was wrong, plain wrong and the Indian Government has sided with the wrong just to make a point (an illogical one) to the US.
Instead they should have worked on something that was right and fought for it to tell US that we are both equal.

OF WORK WITH NO PROPER FACILITIES.

Because of her mistakes and her contacts, India has retaliated for no good reason. Now if US retaliates, Indian students/parents/entrepreneurs, India visa holders, folks seeking immigration will have unnecessary issues. more
I think, this is also known to Indians that she did not enjoy full diplomatic immunity as per international conventions, otherwise, why then the Indian Govt had to take action to transfer her to UN.
Why the maid did not ask for being sent back to India - today we have read this news that she has made a statement that she be sent back, which was refused by Devyani. I also have personal experience in foreign countries how the diplomats treat their maids since while living abroad, we in our association and in social gatherings, came to know of such incidents, but the maids did not have enough support to take any legal action. It may be true that she took advantage of maid being a Christian and going to church and asking for help which I know that church people would have offered to provide her free legal and all other helps, and it was done in secrecy with the help of US embassy staff in India and this was done, then it is inability of Indian Govt to find it out and stop this practice going on in India by foreign diplomats.
What we are trying to say is that if Devyani has done any thing wrong, she should have been tried in US since she did not have any diplomatic immunity as is now obvious. more
