The Indian Government is taking steps to evacuate Indian citizens stranded in Lebanon. According to the Indian Express. “With the situation in Lebanon becoming increasingly dangerous, about 100 Indians have been evacuated out of the country and over 1,000 others gathered on Wednesday at Beirut jetty to be moved out by four Indian warships which sailed into the harbour”.
The Indian Embassies have a horrendous reputation of being callous and careless about the plight of Indians who have gone abroad for various reasons ranging from travel, business, work etc… and are caught up with problems ranging from lost passport and luggage to abuse by employers. Plus they are famous for their tardy response during times of crisis.
This is a step in the right direction and hopefully is the first step in the much needed all round improvement.
