The will to work of everyone in the country is the best guarantee of national survival. ~
If Nehruvian Socialism was supported by all Indians by following this wonderful quote, then India would have been as strong as China, today. Comparing the economy with Japan is out of question, as they adopted the western ways very quickly and now are enjoying the consequences. India became independent in 1947, but the real growth started only in 1991. The history never mentions anything to the students about these 40+ years. To be very frank, I think this history is more important than the pre-independence one.
I hate Indians. They are a beastly people with a beastly religion. ~Winston Churchill
In the era when the ‘ruled ones’ were killing the rulers, India was walking on the path of non-violence. Is being non-violent ‘beastly’?. Oops, it is your language, and I am sure you know better than any Indian, so let it be! But commenting on a religion is something that was not expected, but then who cares now! God only save the Queen, or King? or Conservatives? or Labors?
We owe a lot to the Indians, who taught us how to count, without which no worthwhile scientific discovery could have been made.~Albert Einstein
And now, India is throwing an open challenge to test your counting abilities. How many kids are born per second in India? How many of them have birth certificate? How many of them have chances of basic education? How many of the girls will get killed just like that. Make the pie chart and submit it to the Govt. of India. Prices will be announced after 10years as it will take time to count, recount and recheck the results!
The worst form of inequality is to try to make unequal things equal.
Speechless and to some extent, confused!
