The Indian Problem

Here goes an email forward I received recently (I thought, better I will share it)….

God was in the process of creating the universe. And he was explaining his subordinates…

“Look everything should be in balance. For example, after every 10 deers there should be a lion. Look here my fellow angels, here is the country of the United States I have blessed them with prosperity and money. But at the same time I have given them insecurity and tension…

And here is Africa. I have given them beautiful nature. But at the same time, I have given them climatic extremes…

And here is South America. I have given them lots of forests. But at the same time, I have given them lesser land so that they would have to cut off the forests… So you see fellows, everything should be in balance.

One of the angels asked… “God, what is this extremely beautiful country here?” God said……. “Ahah…that is the crown piece of all. “INDIA”, my most precious creation. It has understanding and friendly people. Sparkling streams, serene mountains; a culture which speaks of the great tradition that they live. Technologically brilliant and with a heart of gold…

The angel was quite surprised “But god you said everything should be in balance.”

God replied – “Look at the neighbors, I gave them.”

Quite a funny take on India, its host of problems and state of affairs… But, when we look for cause most of time we connect a link to the neighboring countries. God knows the truth……as when it comes to international relation, things are not as transparent as it appears. Can’t believe media reports either because of the phony principles on which they function. Provision for education, corruption free bureaucracy, clean politics (let’s get rid of religion, caste & language gambit), food security, proper health care, etc. are more serious challenges to be met. Let’s focus on problems within.

If you are well within, world is very well outside.
