I see a lot of people feel insulted by Matt Hayden's remarks about calling India a 3rd world country. I am not trying to defend Hayden's comment nor trying to attack him for saying what he said. Infact I dont even want to bring cricket into this discussion, that's why opening this thread in OT.
What I am trying understand why this 'Third World' remark considered offensive to some folks ? What do they think really makes a 'Third World' country and why their country isn't one ?
