So, what’s wrong with us Indians?

  1. 1. SO, WHAT’S WRONG WITH US INDIANS……..? INSECURE NATION WITH MOSTLY INSECURE PEOPLE….
  2. 2. TALENT:  As a Nation, the citizens of India are known to be the most talented in this world, far exceeding the Western countries.  Be it the field of Sciences, Arts, Economics or Entertainment; Indians have the capabilities of being the best in the world & also set high standards for others.
  3. 3. CULTURE  The history of India goes back almost 4,500 years – as a planned civilization. (Harappa & Mohenjo daro).  The scriptures of Manu, Vedas & Puranas allow the estimated history of India to be as old as 10, 000 years – truly a stupendous period in time.
  4. 4. EFFECT OF HISTORY ON OUR PSYCHE  Indians are proud as individuals; taking pride in the heroes of India from Lord Rama & Lord Krishna through the millenniums of times of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, Tipu Sultan, Maharaja Ranjit Singh, Rani Laximinai of Jhansi to the modern heroes – Lal-Bal-Pal, Bhagat Singh-Sukhdev-Rajguru.....  Just to name a few !
  5. 5. YET – THE SLAVE MENTALITY PERSISTS  Regardless of the rich & varied history of the Indian sub-continent; the people of India have not grown out of the slave mentality inducted into us by the British. The prudish “victorian mentality” controls the life of most Indian across all social strata; and in essence it can be described as the „Tie- culture‟. Cricket and raping the English language are non-ending activities.
  6. 6. EDUCATED SERFS TO THE WEST  Indian across the country educate themselves and acquire vast amounts of knowledge, talents & experience with one singular aim – to be the serfs of the Western countries.  Being courageous & bold; to utilize the talents inside us for personal benefit – this is unknown to most Indians. Even with the revolution of the info-tech; Indians remain talented servants of the West.
  7. 7. INSECURITIES CONTROL INDIANS  Indians grow up inheriting the insecurities of their parents & transfer these undiluted to our next generations.  We strive to achieve 100% results in school, 75% in College and 35% in our work.  Prayers to the Heavenly powers for success far exceed the efforts to imbibe knowledge. Insecurity in school days & complacency as adults defines an average Indian.
  8. 8. GOD IS THE FALL GUY  The comfort zone of most Indians is the area of failure. We are excellent at repeating the mundane as instructed by the seniors and deadly scared of independent thinking. The idea of not conforming to the known culture is more scary than the idea of being dead.  And since we do not, ever; accept responsibility – failure is always due to bad luck, fault of others, unlucky configurations of Stars, or just the non-approval of God to the failed activity.
  9. 9. THE AWE OF THE WHITE SKIN  Indians are always in awe of the white skinned people. For some strange reason, even the most talented & educated people become docile and slavish in the presence of the most stupidest, uneducated, untalented white person. (eg: The Congress Party of India).  The huge sales of “fairness crèmes” indicates the desires to be “white” rather than the Indian brown that most of us are by reason of genes.
  10. 10. THE CURRENT MINDSET  Enough of the criticism. We all know what we are. We are this ways and we cannot change. The fates control our destiny. Solitude is our shelter. Involvement and interactions with our community is fraught with dangers. We are a People divided by caste, creed & religion for hundreds of years. Why should we change?  Why should there be any change? Is change needed?
  11. 11. LIVING IN DENIAL  Indians are constantly impressed by the planned & regulated life styles of modern cities around the world. Yet; we never work towards changing our cities to be clean, well-planned or properly regulated…. Because we do not want to be disciplined. Discipline, rules, the Law – that’s always for others. Each of us thinks that we are above the law, that we are of some importance; while actually being of no importance.
  12. 12. SO… WHAT’S THE POINT OF THESE SLIDES?  If you are reading this presentation, and are not agitated by now; then you are an Indian destined for failure. You will be a NIP- “Not important person”.  Find your backbone, build up courage, utilize your talents to the max. Be the Master - not the slave, explore new thoughts, rewrite the parameters, set new standards. Live your Life because you only have this life; and we all die only once.
