We are all Indians and we are proud to be Indians. We love our country and all that unity in diversity stuff that we have been writing essays about since we were born. But we have our own quirks and contrasts.
+we talk of male dominance and yet our TV shows are full of women planning and plotting murder while men stand around as props, displaying wide variety of emotions from helplessness to complete indifference.
*we are supposed to be a poor country and our TV actresses wear jewellery and saris worth an underdeveloped country’s monthly income…and that’s on ordinary days…On their weddings they cover every inch of their body in gold and diamonds.
*we all are proud of our family values yet anil ambani and mukesh ambani battle it out in court in a bid to get a greater control over our country…
*if someone foreign calls us something foul we think we are being racially discriminated while we call our own countrymen “chinky”, “chamar”, “hapshi” etc..
*we take pride in our history and heritage that’s why we treat our monuments as public urinals, spitting grounds and notebooks to declare that “bunty loves buubly”…
*we students spend our school lives shouting and screaming…”change the education system” and when a friend calls us in exam time to ask a doubt we say…”chhod na yarr…ratta mar le…”
*we are proud to be Indians and when it comes to getting into colleges…we dream about getting a college ‘jahan se direct US placement ho…’
*we look at aussies harassing Indians and we say they are a rowdy bunch….while our own members of the parliament tear down the parliament shouting, banging desks…flinging copies of the official budget at the speaker while Sonia Gandhi looks on as if thinking…”wish I had gotten into Italy’s parliament”…
*We love Sports. Oh sorry we love Cricket. When athletes from other sports achieve something, we feel proud of them and condemn cricket for taking away the popularity of other sports. Then when those very athletes fail dope tests, we shrug and say “what else can you expect from them”.
* We copy the west…what???R u crazy?? We?? Copy the west???? never…
kaun banega crorepati, iss jungle se mujhe bachao, dance india dance, kya aap paanchvi paas se tez hain, masterchef are all our inventions…
*Amir khan says I don’t attend award shows as an award is not an indication
of ones achievement…but he was seen walking the red carpet on Oscars!!!Apparently they are the only awards that appreciate real talent…
*we love Sachin Tendulkar…Lionel Messi…Linkin Park…Chetan Bhagat…but if we ever
express a desire to be something other than an engineer or a doctor then people look at us as if we are not homo sapiens…
* we want to be a superpower. We want to go ahead of US and UK. Yet when a member of James Cameron’s team was caught in a phone hacking scandal, he apologized on National Television, while in our country we have scams and scandals everyday and politicians are regular culprits, but we still long to see Manmohan Singh come out and give us hope. When he does come out he gives the excuse that such is the disadvantage of Indian politics. But aren’t you the Head of the government? No? Strange that’s what I read in school…
We might not be the best in the world in everything…But we aspire to be the best. USA got independence centuries ago. We got it 64 years ago and yet we are a force to reckon with. Give us a chance and we’ll show everyone that We Are the World!!
