Ok…does anyone know what’s going on in India?

I wrote an article (published) that I’ve posted on Academia dot edu called “Human Nature and Truthfulness in Adoption and Donor Conception Practice”. The article has received 49 hits in the last 30 days from Delhi, Bangalore, Kolkata, Kumar, Gurgaon, Suri, Mumbai, Vijayawada, etc. The search terms when identified are something like “to be truthful is to be human”, “human nature about truthful,” “what is truthful to be human.” More often no search terms are reported. In the same period there have been 2 hits from the United States.

Does anyone here have knowledge about India and why these ideas are appearing there?

  1. India has become a site for surrogacy with little or no oversight. Some links that might shed a light on things:

    Those are the one’s I collected on my web site before I couldn’t hack reading any more about it. It’s all pretty heinous; you obviously hit a nerve by actually speaking about, God forbid, ethical considerations.

  2. I have been very concerned with Reproductive Tourism in India…but have been surprised at the sudden increase of interest from diverse parts of the India…some look like Muslim cities. Of course I don’t know who is reading the article…only that it is being located. Thank you for these links. We’ll see how it develops.

  3. After looking at the search tools…I am thinking that the subject itself corresponds to student’s looking for the topic…like a curriculum theme: Common Core INDIA. It may also be an Islamic or Hindi theme of interest. Sadly…does not look related to adoption or donor conception. Perhaps, someone will read the paper and learn something!

    Slightly interesting to me is that in the west the notion of truth seems to be handled almost completely abstractly…though I have yet to look at Bernard William’s book on Truth and Truthfulness.

    Thanks for your note, Daniel.
