yes bagu, simply superb!!!!!
Moral: There are more important things in life than work and general knowledge
ani tumche politics che discussion suddha khup chhan hota. we feel really sad especially if we get a chance to visit or stay in foreign contries... as bagu said. Mind keeps on comparing our country with other developed countries...
Germany is one of the cleanliest countires in EVERY respect.... here laws are so strict that making a simple mistake can make you pay for a lifetime...you start obeying the laws out of fear for a while and then it becomes your habit. Everything comes automatically.
buttttt in India, until corruption is there, nobody can do anything there. Just as discipline is in the German people's blood, corruption is in Indian's blood. not just the politicians but the most ordinary person also tries to bribe or get bribe for the smallest work he wants to get done quickly...
Do you know, who started first law and order in India? It was by British!!!!! They were not ruling us that time. I was so surprised to learn that. This was during the time British came to India initially for business.
It started like this:
In Madras province, two British people were standing at the bank of the river. They suddenly noticed a body floating in the water. They saw one Indian guy also standing nearby them, so they asked him to take the body out. He did so and then asked the money to the British in return for this job.
British got confused and they refused to give money. Afterall they had just asked him to remove the body from the water. They had nothing to do with the body itself.
Since the argument was going on, people gathered and finally they found a very shocking truth- that the body that was taken out of the water was of a small girl who was raped and murdered by the same person who took it out from the water!!!!
That time there was no official law existed in India so nobody knew how to deal with that man, what punishment should be given to him.
Those two British guys then called to their head office, I think in Surat , where Indian people were the authorities.
They told them the matter and asked what to do. In return our Indian people asked them, how do they deal with such a crime in Britain. British guys told that they hang the man publically. Then the Indian authories told, just do the same thing with that man too then!
And the first case of legal action, i.e. hanging in public took place in Madras!!!!!
