According to a WHO report* more than 400 people die on average each day in India in road accidents, but hardly anyone seems to take note of it.

Is there any reason people and media generally don't react or talk about such high rate of casualties in road accidents, whereas even a lonely and infrequent incident of injury or death with communal overtones usually has the entire nation talking and coming to standstill (including endless debates in the media)?

Look at the main concern and priority of people and the media in India, while ignoring and overlooking the extremely high casualties in road incidents / accidents.
