V Tech - Small World

I came across this story in the Times of India: "Sudden death of an Indian Dream"

I thought it was poignant because of the way it illustrates how close we are to each other all over the world. I think there is something else here, too, but I am not sure what - It could be that it refutes some bloggers' cynicism that media coverage of the shooting has been hypocritical. Not just a ratings draw, this event was particularly traumatizing in a way death on a larger scale in Iraq (or Darfur, or plenty of other places) has not been.

Can we make the connection?
