Sweden is 1.5 times more important to India than Belarus

The only item to make headlines in the Swedish newspapers regarding the Indian President’s State Visit to Sweden was the accident his motorcade had on a roundabout on the last day of his visit. Nothing else was worth reporting in the Swedish media. The Indian media were not much more interested. Which is a commentary on the lack of real content.

In any event after his 3 day visit to Sweden Pranab Mukherjee went off for a 2 day jaunt to Belarus.

Maybe that is the real message. Sweden is 1.5 times more important to India than Belarus. And going by column-inches, India is 1% as important to Sweden as FIFA.
