Here's and article in The Hindu, an Indian newspaper:

They hit most of the same points as western articles do, both good and bad, but they do it in a much more respectful way. It is interesting that they use NICE as a reference,

The cause of CFS/ME remains unknown. It could be triggered by an infection and the different potential aetiologies for this condition — neurological, endocrine, immunological, genetic, psychiatric and infectious — have been investigated, but the diverse nature of the symptoms cannot yet be fully explained, says the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE ), UK. WHO classifies CFS/ME as a neurological illness, but many others disagree."

What do you know about ME/CFS in India? Prevalence? Treatment? Perception?
