“Why are we like that only? “- the story of india !


Why is it that :


While driving on the roads we see people who do not free the left lane .. we curse people who do not stop where required….people who do not give way to ambulances…. and yet do the same when we have a choice of not to ...


We see people jumping across the railway track .. just to save 2 mins … we see overloaded buses ..people again who want to save 10 mins by not waiting for next bus…


at cinema halls .. there is a war at the snacks counter … where a simple queue would do .. We prove that we live in land of Mahabharata!


We switch jobs like we are on a merry go around in a fair….
Exams like CAT and IIT JEE are like annual Olympics..Most eagerly waited for events.. and every one who is legally eligible .. at least fills up the form - like Engineering + MBA is our national profession ...


We speak the most in places where silence is respected .. and are shy where it matters the most ..
We complain that no one comes forward to change the country.. While we are busy making more money.. Looking for better jobs.. Or foreign work permits.

Its confusing .. Are we most amicable race or are we most selfish … are we the most tolerant people or are we most riot mongering … are we easily satisfied … or are we most aggressive .. At times we want the short cuts for everything.. At times we are most hardworking among the nationalities…If anyone tries to sum up us Indians in one mentality … or one attitude .. that would lead to a miserable failure…


Why are we like that only?

well i mean we r not taught when we were kids abouyt the importance of discipline, but rather our upbringing was more focussed on issues like helping poor, fear in God, being helpful to the poor and needy , and things like that.
Of course the other 20 percent indians who live below poverty line continued to struglle for their very existence, hehnc enever the oppurtunity to learn about all these ethics......hence we find today s india to be a bundle of contradictions.......India is humanity personified , india has no compassion for its poor, peaceful, secular, tolerant india, violence and bloodshed on religious grounds, in the name of god also marred india............... in short one could say that india is the melting point of all cultures, religions an
