The year 2013 has come to an end. I was thinking if we Indians know of ourselves clearly. With this in mind I wish to portray my thoughts to friends truthfully. Well here goes my yakity yak to you.
I used to wonder about the lackadaisical approach by any government of India to market it as the most spectacular tourist spots in the world. I just did a long search for unique picturesque places and I am stunned by my own ignorance of the beauty of our poor but great country of resources. Tell me dear readers after you have seen these pictures, that aren't you also not stunned ?????? No wonder the world knows us as MYSTERIOUS INDIA.
Here is a brief on the uniqueness of the only country in the world with the best natural and manpower resource in the world, highly overpopulated,with most people in poverty status, but with one of the most vibrant educated large middle-class people of the world, I would also state that it is the most educated nation for its great democracy and judicial systems, but here again the level of corruption is so endemic that most of the elected politicians are draining away the nation's resources for their own personal wealth. Mind you, tell me which nation in the world has 14 official languages with over 300 spoken dialects but remains as a nation together despite it's periodic ethnic and religious mob and processional violences ( mostly in rural India). I believe India has more to offer to the world in terms of living as a society with all people's differences of living and religious habits.This unique freedom enables it's citizens to live "a happy for the day" life.
