C'mon...what's wrong in drinking beer, as long as they don't trouble you?
This particular survey has considered only certain types of 'sins'. These are what the people who have conducted the survey consider as 'sins'. There are many other types of sins which are not included in this. And probably this survey never considered certain 'internal' sins in India
They talk of racism abroad. Are we Indians not racist to some extent? Why do we discriminate on basis of caste or language or skin colour? Don't they show ads on TV 'glorifying' fair skin? SRK is the brand ambassador of a 'mens fairness cream'. Why are these being allowed? First ban those ads and those 'fairness' products. They are all fake....nothing can change the natural colour of your skin. You can reduce 'skin damage' by using sunscreen and that's it. Nothing can prevent tanning.
I know a person who is dark skinned and has an MBA in HR. She applied for a job in one of the top 3 IT companies...and the recruitment guy asked for the photo of the candidate. She was rejected. She found the reason through some internal sources and found that it is because she didn't have a 'pleasing' personality.
Next, think of the dowry issue. Govt has 'officially' banned it, but has the problem stopped? Absolutely not. There is an educated friend of mine, who got married by paying a dowry of 40 lakh...because she was highly educated and she had to find a highly educated groom, whose 'price' was higher.(She has 2 sons now) I asked this lady as to whether she would take dowry for her sons, and she said 'definitely'. When I had to pay so much, why should I not get it back? And she is one of the modern, educated, post graduate ladies!!!
I can go on and on about localised 'sins'.
They say 'while pointing your index finger at someone, remember that the rest of the fingers are pointed towards you'.
Why do we always try to find fault with others and spread hatred? If you want to hate someone, think of those terrorists who want to always attack our country. Think of those sickening politicians who are spreading discord and can be rightly categorised as 'terrorists'.
But please spare the common public (of our country and other countries). They are much less sinners.
