So.. After a long time.. I'm back blogging...
It's because of my exams and stuff like that...
So...before I delve into the topic, I wanted to give some strong foundation which is wy the first part may seem like bit of belabouring...
After being in this country(Singapore) for about 6 months so far... I'm just amazed by the initiatives this Govt does in this country. Before I deal with more on this, let me give you some examples of how “bad” this country would have been if it were not properly maintained.
I read this blog of 5yrs ago recently... posted a comment (not there now.) You have made very good points about cleanliness in Singapore even though the weather there is at times harsher than that of many modern Indian cities (away from sea coast... like B'lore for eg.,) Points you bring out are valid.
In my view more irrating in India is the lack of proper metro transport (local trains) except in Delhi (in last decade) and Kolkatta and Mumbai of several decades of British planning. Other cities are bringing in fast metros for commute of thousands of communters across large cities (many hardly 8 to 15 miles across) because of uncontrolled population explosion in cities because farmers from villages can get fair prices for their produce by directly coming and selling cities as othewise the middlemen who buy produce at the farm make a huge killing by selling it for huge profit in citiies in their own shops/markets. And villagers have hardly any employment due to neglect of agriculture in their villages. They come for paltry construction jobs and labor jobs in house holds.
More disturbing is the traffic in cities; very annoying for daily commuters and school/college going children. I posted in Sulekha an new idea about FEDERAL vs STATE cities. In short it is declaring all A class cities of India today as 'Fedieral Cities' and only Central Gov., taking up infrastructure & development (roads, buses, rails, schools all realestate- residential & busness) from now on. Governors appointed by Fed Gov should rule all Federal Cities. All B, C class cities should be governed by State CMs and Legislature. Read my blog on that @
First of all I'd like to say I'm proud to be from Kerala and although I've never heard anyone say, "Why should we imitate that puny little state? my state is great", if its true then we really have a problem on our hands don't we. Since people are stupid enough to think that 100% literacy is not necessary because their state is supposedly "great". Also, I think there's a common bond between all Indians, at least almost all... selfishness. It's all about me, me, me. No one thinks of the common good. In a country where a freaking political party can force every inhabitant of a town or county to stay indoors or face harassment because they're "protesting" is NEVER going to develop. Sometimes I think the British should've stayed. Why did they get kicked out? So that the country could be further destroyed? I think the best thing for India right now is for people to help each other, help the poor, because it doesn't seem like the govt. will. Speaking about my own state, the govt. seems too busy with its solar scams and pleasing celebrities. Even when they go to another country Indians aren't able to FIT IN. They have to have their curry and bollywood music blaring even if its in the middle of the street and the smell of the curry is protruding into others homes or businesses. What India needs is a strong leader and sense of unity. I don't know how it'll happen, but it has to. OH and I do like your point about uncontrolled population. Yeah- stop having 17 kids per family. Honestly the govt. needs to take initiative or get out. They're in these positions because they lie and kill the competition and all they want to do is better themselves not the people. GOSH. And Indians need to let go of their ancient ideologies like untouchables. It's cruel, unusual and medieval. When Indian culture is being taught in school I feel ashamed because what's being taught is how poor India is and how people are shunned from society supposedly because they're untouchable. Disgusting. Even the refugees coming out of Syria look better than the Indians being shown on CNN after 23 children died from insecticide in their food, of course this was Bihar. How can Manmohan Singh put on his turban and sit like a kitten when "his people" are living in slums, eating feces? All these supposed "great states" can take a page out of Kerala's book and learn to read and lose their untouchable laws. I bet there's more but my knowledge on Kerala isn't that extensive. Make all the excuses you want but Indians can do a lot if they put their mind to it- they did after all rid the country of the powerful, mighty British empire. I learned about China in school and how during the Qin dynasty the tyrant ruler Shi Huang Di united a warring China and made the people into 1 and China flourished. Although he ruled with an iron fist and can be considered crazy, killing millions to build the Great Wall, he set the stage for the Han dynasty and China flourished further. The Confucian principles of respect, and importance of the "whole" and not the individual helped, too. Because of these rulers, China could've in fact taken over the world during the Age of Exploration with their technology that was FAR more advanced than the Europeans. But they were ethnocentric and kept to themselves. Indians are selfish, they ignore the child employees bringing them chai and cool drinks. They ignore the slums of Calcutta. They ignore the prostitution. MORE MUST BE DONE AND NO ONE CAN DO IT OTHER THAN THE GOVT. AND THE PEOPLE!
HI, TO EVERYBODY.GROWTH OF A TREE IS CARED FROM THE SEED.LIKEWISE WE CAN DEVELOPE OUR COUNTRY ONLY BY DEVOLPING THE VILLAGES.AND FIRST OF ALL WE MUST BE CORRECT THEN ONLY WE CAN CORRECT OUR COUNTRY. THERR ARE MANY BENDING WORKS IN OUR COUNTRY.SINCE WE HAVE CASTEISM,CHILD EMPLOYEES,STUPID BELIEFS......AND SO ON IN OUR MOTHERLAND. IF I SAID ANYTHING WRONGLY I'M EXTREMELY SORRY FOR THAT
i have stopped writing blogs or commenting,bcs hardly find worthwhile subjects,what you hv mentioned here is what i have always been thinking since i hv travelled the world many times,every time i heard the song ''HUM HONGE KAMYAAB EK DIN PURA HAI VISHWAS'',this is like saying one day my child will learn to walk it is understandable if the child is below 2 years and not 22 years.
yes in india we dont have one honest leader all are dacoits,moreover we are a family oriented and not society oriented,we see feloow citizens as enemies,maharashtra is best example where anybody who is not a maharashtrian is considered an outsider,over population of the wrong kind have burdened the country,tax payer and the infrastructure.i dont see any developement only a down side from here.
What we need to do for our country needs?????
Can anyone give me some solid point What and how to implement it practically???? Role of youths????????????????????
youth is being destroyes by making people above 40 the controllers of this country .
now this youth would grow old and get wasted
nice one mugunth
father of india must hve been netaji.
very few indians down south or anywhere know it.
i agree with mugunth and he has described our country in a way which shows the real problem. i have to disagree with u shaji ..most of the south indians think that netaji should have been the father of the nations instead of gandhi who was responsible for dividing our country in the first place.
Who told you that 95% of railways are built after british??
When british were there, we were not allowed in trains... so might be your father would have thought that there weren't any railways...
The only thing to be proud about India is reliance and it's mobile innovations...
Every one is able to afford a mobile because of him... He (Dhirubhai) did what govt ought to do...
Govt has to create jobs.. its not that people are lazy... Do you know why so many IIT'ans are going abroad? Lack of "quality" jobs in India... Sitting here like a duck and working for an American money is crap and bullshit.. I would opt to work for the same America for $ salary...
When 2000 crore rs can be given as bribe by some company, for signing the nuclear pact, the same can be done to create a research facility near any IIT to process Thorium... India has the 2nd largest Thorium deposits... still we did a blunder by signing a pact with US... So who do you think is responsible for that bullshit?
So long this bull shit happens, India will suffer from brain drain.. no other go...
It is one of the largest in the world only after China and US because those are bigger countries, secondly 95% of railway was done after British left.
And I'm talking about Indians who are working not those who are in village doing nothing at all. Indians working in companies are lazy heads, production of India is low because of the lazy Indians, you expect government of the people, which is going to be as lazy as any other Indian.
If someone in my opinion doesn't like the country they can go as "Free Loaders" to Canada because its already a ready cake for you to eat, out of those who work and are not lazy they are like you who do not love their country at all and who of themselves don't wanna do anything but cry.
You talk about low caste getting the job and I'm talking same people "they being Indians" are freaking lazy, I can't help it if these people are lazy we inherited these lazy people it can't be helped.
Out of all the states in India only people I find not "TOO" lazy are Gujratis, though I'm a Maratha, I know my people one of the laziest, can't be helped that's how it is in India, working outside India for past 15 years has taught me being lazy means being out of job, this attitude is missing and I wouldn't blame government for this attitude of people.
Government is what people are, you don't expect government to do better than people, if Americans are stupid so was Bush, they voted for him.
If we are lazy people we should expect lazy government, unless we wake up and be committed, which is going to take ages and yes you have to pay taxes for 65% of people of India who do not pay taxes and still get all the facilities.
And for your Information 95% of Power and Railway grid was done after British left if you have any relative who was born before 1947 and he remembers something ask him.
My dad was born in 1940 and he knows, yes system was strict and punctuality was valued, which isn't anymore but no there wasn't any power in City like Kalyan which is only 75km from Mumbai, which had a population of hardly 150,000. Now its a city with 2.1 Million population and its powered down to every household.
Government of India did what it could and its doing what it can but if freaking people and dumb ass lazy not even God could help them and most of the people who actually are in government (I'm not talking about low level guys) I'm talking about even people like Lalu who people love to hate work real hard otherwise they wouldn't be in position they are on, it takes hard work lots of traveling, lots of balls to achieve what they have, if you have balls, time and ability to put so much of effort then do it.
Don't blame government because we live with 65% of retards useless villagers.
