"I have traveled across the length and breadth of India and I have not seen one person who is a beggar, who is a thief. Such wealth I have seen in this country, such high moral values, people of such calibre, that I do not think we would ever conquer this country, unless we break the very backbone of this nation, which is her spiritual and cultural heritage, and, therefore, I propose that we replace her old and ancient education system, her culture, for if the Indians think that all that is foreign and English is good and greater than their own, they will lose their self-esteem, their native self-culture and they will become what we want them, a truly dominated nation."
- From a speech by Lord McCaulay (Founder of our modern education system) in Parliament, 1835.
Ever wondered why India , despite the growing economy , doesnt find a place among world's superpowers? We are a major soft power with 'exports' like Bollywood etc but when it comes to high table discussions, India is not given the weightage that it deserves. Why?
The answer is simple: Indians & their fuckin inferiority complex vis-a-vis other , especially "white" nations. Else how can you explain our meek rabbit like behavior in crucial matters of national security and issues like Bhopal gas leak case etc? The truth is fairly evident: We , as citizens, are in a bad colonial hangover and give a shit about our own country.
Let me prove that through these points:
 OUR CULTURE
Our dipshit citizens wrongly associate Indian culture with religion. Religion is just a stupid thing. Indian culture , however, has always been scientific. Thats why India was world's most advanced civilization in historic times. A good 1000 years before Copernicus, Varahamihira had proved that its the Sun which is at the universe's center & not earth. When Europeans were wetting their beds thinking about their deficient zero-less roman numerals or that earth is flat, Aryabhatta was working on a discovery called 'Zero' and side-by-side proving that earth is round. Panini gave the world, the most comprehensive and advanced grammar ( Devnagri script) ever. And Pythagoras theorem was discovered by Aryabhatta.. many years before Pythagoras was born.
Even our 'rituals' are all scientific. For eg. There is a solid logic behind the age old practice of 'Surya namaskaar'. The early morning rays of sun are very helpful for body but only if seen through water, which acts as a filter to prevent light UV rays. But tell this to some new age "cool" Indian and the asshole will laugh sarcastically. However, let some foreign scientist publish this fact in the famous 'Nature' magazine and we all will go crazy about it.
Why? Because of a complex which tells him/her that India can never be great. US patents our basmati and yoga and sells its 'mutated' form back to us and we go crazy over that. Why? Coz its 'foreign' packaged. Nowhere in this world, citizens look down upon their highly scientific culture in favor of a less developed foreign one.
Its not bad to embrace other cultures but it sucks if you think your own great culture is not the "in thing" or "cool" (unless you are Pakistani ofcourse).
 IT MUST BE RIGHT IF THEY ARE SAYING IT!
This particularly pisses me off big time! As an example, CWG opening ceremony is being hailed as better than the Beijing olympics 2008 one. India has truly arrived. This doesnt absolve Kalmadi & Co of corruption charges but thats another matter. What matters here is our attitude towards ourselves.
Indian athletes were made to stay in rundown youth hostels during Melbourne CWG '06. But did we protest? On the other hand, we lapped up every criticism foreign authorities threw at us during CWG preparations - be it logical or not! Everyone was shamelessly saying "They are right. We are like this only!". The problem isnt in self-knowledge. The problem lies in the "they are always right" mindset. They say that India isnot a safe country. Many dickhead athletes pull out due to "security fears". And we believe all these reports about our nation. WTF ! India is as secure as other countries today (except well.. Pakistan) ofcourse. Recently, US unearthed a terror plot which was aiming to blow up several European capitals. IN YOUR FACE huh? Now, whos more secure?
Try telling this to Indian eggheads. Futile with a big 'F' !
 WE, THE PEOPLE
We, really, dont respect ourselves at all. Yes, Indians are bloody hypocrites. Yes, we are immature people who dirty every city / locality we live in. We know. And people world over take no break in telling us all this continuously. What surprises me is our reaction to it. Instead of doing the following:
> Accept the logical points,
> Tell them their stupid things,
> Improve ourselves ;
we do the following:
> Agree with them bloody overwhelmingly,
> Add points from our side so as to give them a good laugh at our expense,
> go back to old routine.
Freaking brilliant, morons !
 BOLLYWOOD v/s HOLLYWOOD
Another major point. True, Hwood makes better movies with better stories and effects. While they make Avatar and Inception; we create Karan-ish and Yashraj-ish shit like "I hate luv storys" , "Anjana Anjani" , "Kites" etc. But once in a while, we DO create something spectacular but even thats not good enough for our citizens! Take recent Rajni starrer 'Robot' for example. Majority of the Hwood "worshippers" , who have seen it, are uttering sentences like 'It aint better than Transformers or Terminator" . Many 'elitists' who love 'My name is Khan' types have decided not to watch 'mass' movies like Dabangg as its too 'villag-ish' (?) or Robot because they dont think of Rajni as a star. He is Asia's second highest paid actor and guarantees success is another matter.
I just want to ask those morons one question: If Shankar (Robot's Director) is given the budget of Terminator, dont you think he will create a movie which will make Terminator look like a kid's movie? The man is a genius. He planned and executed India's first true sci-fi movie (Krishh btw was just a comic, not a movie!) with never seen before bloody cool SFX and animatronics. He must be lauded for this effort as this will give rise to more such movies - bigger and more larger than life!
But what can you expect from a poor mindset? We wont applaud him but will go crazy over Chris Nolan (Inception) even though 50% of the airheads didnt understand what the fuck was inception all about.
I can go on & on as there are so many points & sub-topics; but whats the use. I just wanna say that I love my nation and the goodness in it. And no, I dont think its inferior to any other country. Those who do however, can happily continue sitting in their comfortable sofas and criticising everything Indian. I dont give a shit.
