Why is the Indian middle class so selfish?

As the reservation dispute rages on, one thing that shocks me about the English press in India is its blatant support for the anti-quota protestors. I fail to recall any decent coverage of pro-quota demonstrators. This article from Hindustan Times really gets my gall and proves my point... Specially, the last line, "Dear minister, it's time to pray." That's sound's more like a line out of a mafia film than journalism. Read Vinod Mehta's piece on why the middle class seems so hostile to the empowerment of the poor in India.
