Originally posted by Polki_ZofiPartition was a choice of Indians, being invaded and then killed by German NAZI forces was not a choice Poland made or any other poor nation in Europe. So it is not comparable.
please stop talking. people did not want partition, the Leaders did, for their own greedy needs. I am sorry for being so rude, partition was as much choice of Indian as getting killed was the choice of polish people. Why exactly is death of million innocent people not comparable? That is the white supremast talking. I am sorry to say that.You are sentimental because it is possible the holocaust affected you somehow. Well partition affected me. IF you choose to put down the pain and suffering of so many people by some lame ass judgement, you deserve to receive the same.
Your Bose met Hitler but it was Hitler who refused to deal with him as he considered bose inferior. Sorry but you must face it. I did not know about your bose but now that I studied a little, it is clear he was aimless and only raised a militia which achieved practically nothing. His alliance with adolf hitler is poor.
Have you read about gen Shahnawaz Hussain, Cpt Laxmi Saigol, Major Saigal. No, i doubt. But I don't expect you to have a thorough knowledge of Indian history, its too much to ask for, so you are free to have your opinion and so do I. But I request you once again, please do not pass judgement based on your knowledge. Trust me you will not like it when you get it back.
Someone live in Germany here thinks of Germans are representative of Europeans thinking the way they think? Germans are an economic center of Europe. They have more Indians, while we in Poland dont have.
Some one living in Poland here think they represent what all europeans and poles think about Indians. Poland is not the only country where polish people can be found. And Students have a chance with interact with the youth of many nation, irrespective of economy. Rather students do not think what economic big wigs decide, their exchanges are lot based on knowledge and technology and common interest. So please don't assume living in germany equates to knowing only germans. There are enough polish ,greek, romanian, armenian, eukranian turkish, russian, and other european people, specially students living in germany and other european countries now. The world is a much smaller place than you think, living in one place does not mean interaction is limited to the locality only.
Indians are hardworking like any other nation, I respect India for it. Yes you are hard working, but I wish you be better to your can get some success as a nation too. China is doing much better and so not much comparison can be there. Malaysia is doing better too. It is still not true that some country's scientist invent something and his name is not as significant as his invention. I hope in India better to invent than to just work hard for commerce. Give the world too so you will know what this does to identity.
Thanks for your wishes. But a country roughly the size of europe, with as many diverse language and culture as europe, has also a lot of problem. Are all the members of EU equally advanced? No. Now replace EU with central Govt of India and you get the gist. China is doing better than USA even, and certainly better than greece, spain,Portugal,Poland and lot other european countries. Why don't you compare them for a change? Problem exist everywhere.
Invention, let me talk about very recent invention.You know the HIgs Boson particle? Do you know where the name Boson comes from? Why don't you google and find it out.
India has given the world enough, certainly more than what you know it seems. IF you are really that interested in India's well being, why don't you spend some time finding them out. Right now, your post sounds very shallow and devoid of any fact.
I wish well. But I still see Gandhi as right and relevant to todays world. Maybe not for Indians but others around the world.
I agree to some extent. yet his principles are a bit too lofty but worth following, and not for India but for the whole world. But why is the onus on us to follow it even when it is impractical? Why don't you write a post on how the USA should follow Gandhi's principle and stop those drone attacks or condemn the way they hunted down OBL? because its impractical, its nice when it sounds, to turn your other cheek. But self defense is a right of any living creature, and you cannot dictate them how to behave. Its for people and country to decide.
India should also pay attention to athletics and sports. Any mention on India's effort in last Olympics? Such a huge country, huge population, much more to expect.
Well the country has enough problems, athletics and sports included. And India does pay attention to it. But its a huge country with democracy, things will always move at very slow speed. Efforts of India in olympics was amazing one time, extremely poor in between and is gradually improving. HUge country and huge population also has huge poverty. When you don't have food, everything else takes a backseat. The current world champion in chess btw is Indian.
To reject question is easy, to face it is difficult. I care for India and I see a relation with it through the husband. But Indian achievement is nothing compared to those with which it must compete in the global race.
NO one is rejecting question, we are brave and smart people and we face every problem and we look for solutions.
I am glad you care for India, whatever the reason maybe. But your posts, unfortunately, do not reflect it.
It lacks any fact, only emotional outbursts supported by some random information most of which are not true. For example you talk about Indian achievement but you fail to give example how India lacks achievement. How do you define achievement? Most of the educational,research and business institutions around the world have Indians in the top positions. Is that an achievement to you or not?
You talk about science and invention but you only go as far as you want to see. You do not seem to be interested in anything beyond what you choose to know. Do you know how laughabale it sounds when you ask India to contribute to the world?
Your posts sound ignorant and condescending, made specifically to prove how better you are. It sounds typically like those of the christian missionaries who had landed in the early 18th century in India to spread the light to dirty niggers.
Just because we are receptive of criticism and different point of views does not mean we are ignorant or weak. It means we respect other people's opinion. And gandhi, whom you respect so much, even he did not shy down from taking action , when being pushed over constantly. Please read how he fought for equal rights in South Afrika. So please do not misjudge our willingness to receive criticism as our lack of self esteem.
I don't know how you had the impression of the India you are talking about, but that picture of India is a figment of imagination .
