Who do you think you are, may I ask?Tongue All your cocky comments are leading nowhere.Tongue You are here to prove that you've got nothing to prove. If you have to diss on India, why are you here on I-F?
Sure India has many problems than the US, but US also has it's share.

Eh?  The last time I looked, I was a homo sapiens ...  why do I think that that is both necessary and sufficient to have membership in this 'entertainment portal' ... some additional particulars are to be had on my profile ... oh ... I was born and raised on the subcontinent ...
 
You are here to prove that you've got nothing to prove.
 
Is that so?  Why, I must thank you for knowing me better than I know myself ... I wondered about my identity crisis - and me well past middle age (by some standards) ... maybe I should consult my own profile ...
 
If you have a substantive response about the issue I raise, do go ahead and enlighten me ... cocky comments welcome ...
 
Sorry gotta run ... will check back later for your dissertation ...
Yes, since you think you know more than we do, why don't you start a forum called "The Oversmart Forum", eh? And talk about your crap over there? You would make a great communist leader, may I add, right in between Stalin and Mao Zedong. So, do not just us, but yourself a favor, keep your attitude to yourself, and we'll keep our 'entertainment portal' Well, to be honest, I don't know what your issue is, is it about the 'entertainment portal' or the American issues?Tongue Yes, I gotta run too, I have a life too, so Ciao.

Vici?  will Ceaser's due be mine? The jury is out ...

Someone in the know about the legal position of the separation of 'church' and state (read: religion and state) in Independent India, please oblige us with the facts. 

Things are never 0 or 1, neither in US nor in India. In India we respect all religions, we have public holidays for almost all the religions. In the past, we had a Muslim president,  Sikh prime minister (at present), Hindu prime minister, Woman prime minister, etc.  The separation of church and state is there, but it can improve for sure.


If this concept is on the books, then what I see on Indian TV is nothing short of the tyranny of the majority, and should be firmly and decisively axed. 

My advice is that dont form any opinion about India based on TV. They dramatize a lot. Rather, first live in India, just like you told someone to live in US before forming an opinion.

The active promoting of the 'horrorscope' and astrology snake-oil-salesperson (since women are as much a part as men) on channels pales in comparison!

At the most, above is just some harmless stuff. Moreover, astrology makes at least some sense. For example - the nature of a person getting born in different weather conditions is likely to be influenced, even if a bit, by the weather conditions.

In a nation ostensibly secular, what place does the parading of Hindu sentiment have on shows for public consumption?!  'Hanuman ki Jai', 'Mata ki Jai', 'Ganapati Buppa Morea', wheeling in idols of one kind or another, overt worshipping, Pundits spewing nonsense!!!  To the complete exclusion of Muslims, Sikhs, Christians, Buddhists, Jains, and the myriad other 'faiths'!!!  How is this permitted?!!  It doesn't just stop there of course - does a show exist where the characters are not steeped in Hinduism?!!  Not as far as I can tell.

Similar things, even if not on similar scale, happen in US where Christians are in majority. Anyway, like I said before things are never 0 or 1 and things will improve. One point about public sentiments is that in India people are less individualistic and there is much more feeling of community and togetherness. People value love.

 Another curiosity that leaves me completely thunderstruck is that bizarre gesture - of hand over heart - called 'Sahara Pranam' on the Sahara channel!  Why is this reminiscent of the 'Heil Hitler' of the Nazi regime?  Are these people RSS'ites?! And no one has yet cried 'foul'??!!

Since when just having a "similar" gesture makes one a Nazi?  Confused At least in India we don't judge people like that.

I entered this forum on the heels of a discussion on 'Money, Love & Happiness' (such as it was)  ... and there it was ... glowing in the rest of the 'darkness' ... the predictable bashing of the 'American' and their natural unhappiness the result of an unnatural amount of money ... the originator has not yet answered my query of whether (s)he has spent any appreciable amount of time in the US to have averred that that is the state of affairs (and uniquely American to boot)

I agree that one should spend considerable time in US to know about that place. Moreover, its same in the case of India.

... I suspect (s)he has not ... oh, we do have our ills in this regard ... there is the Christian fundamentalist view broadcast on TV ... on fringe TV ... it would be unthinkable that this would be permitted on mainstream television ... and it does not require the services of an astrologer to predict that behinds would get hauled into court ... governmental agencies and independent legal organizations would hail fire and brimstone ... and up in smoke such an enterprise would go ... to reach some celestial site ...

This social climate in the US is a source of great happiness for all of us others who do not subscribe to one or the other superstition-du-jour ... one might almost say 'true happiness'.
