Analogy isn’t what it used to be

Regarding the June 25 AP article “Detroit may sell its cultural gems if city goes bust“: The world is in a sad state. I hope Detroit recovers and comes out stronger in the future. I wonder whether Japanese companies will still continue to refer to the Indian state of Tamil Nadu as the “Detroit” of India, or for that matter, if Indians will be proud to hear that sort of analogy anymore.
