This is the kind of in-depth, on-the-ground reporting that few newspapers can afford. The Hindu looks at how the public health system fails the poorest pregnant women in Thane, just next to Mumbai. Reporters actually question where some of the failures happen and why.

It’s a sobering read for anyone who thinks that all of India’s health problems can be solved by more money for the public system.
