JAMMY NEWS - Donkeys V's Women

A new school textbook in India has kicked up a storm by comparing housewives to donkeys - and saying donkeys make better companions.

The new book has been written for 14-year-old schoolchildren in the western state of Rajasthan.
Part of the book says: "A donkey is like a housewife.
"In fact, the donkey is a shade better, for while the housewife may sometimes complain and walk off to her parents' home, you'll never catch the donkey being disloyal to his master."

The book was approved by the state's Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party government but has sparked complaints from its women's wing.

State education officials in Rajasthan, which is known for its conservative attitude to women, said people should not be upset at the comparison.
