Q.

The truth is that aping the western model is going to take India down the same path of cultural degradation and economic disaster. Indian economics flourished 5000 years before the JP Morgan / Harvard /Western media combo started taking the world for a ride. It is time for India to take the lead, the losers can follow.- What do You Say ?

Unless we change ourselves from "Talking Tigers" to "Working Tigers", this is not going to happen. We have huge potential; but do not capitalise on it.

We point fingers at Govt no doing their job. Yet, when we are at work, we waste most of the time in unproductive things.

We do not encourage merit - but go by caste, creed and connections for appointment, promotions, etc. How can a society or nation do well if we do not heed to the words of wise and capable ??

These are almost the same words spoken by Sharad Yadav yesterday in the discussion.
::
Sharad Yadav said he saw the socialist leader Ram Manohar Lohia's prophesies of cultural decay and decline coming true. Rampant consumerism, he said sagely, was the reason for England's unsafe streets. "Don't imitate these examples," he warned.
::

India can and should lead by good example. Just the question is which category it should put all the energies for the support. Running half-heartedly on various goals does not work.
