Blame Ourselves !
We often commit mistakes because we are not aware of the subject. Our ignorance, our stupidity, our over confidence, believing people more than they deserve, our own nature, our egoism, our egotism, etc. play a vital role in our life. As far as things go smoothly, nothing to worry. If anything goes wrong we blame the same people.
Our people are to be blamed.
1] National Feelings :- Ambi gave guidance to Alexander where to cross the river, the strength and weaknesses of Porus. That was why Alexander won.
The Indian leaders never questioned the foreigners who they were to rule India? If the foreigners established their empire our people approached for jobs. Even if questioned it was only PPP [Pray, Petition, Protest], nothing else.
We have been god fearing, paapam, punyam feelings, always seeking a seat in heaven, and following good dealing relations, etc. No god had ever come to our rescue to save India from foreign invasion.
2] Inefficiency :-Babar who came to India only with 10,000 soldiers could conquer India and established Moghal Empire in India. That dynasty ruled India for 250 years nearly.
What happened to our pooja?
What did the 33 crore gods do to us?
3] Loss of “of mine” feelings :- In 1757 AD after conquering Calcutta, Robert Clive with his 1000 soldiers platoon was marching in the streets of Calcutta. Nearly 1,00,000 people came to see the event. It was written in his diary that “If the people who gathered there could throw a stone at us, I would not have established British Empire in India!”
Indians could never imagine what will be going to happen.
We have been bringing more and more idols into worship, quarrel on petty things, we have been far far away from humanistic feelings.
too hindu na banega, too mussalmaan na banegaa
insaan ki oulaad hai, insaan banegaa.
4] Neocolonialism:- India is always searching for foreign funds. India is a large country.
It is full of resources. This country has been exploited for thousands of years. Still it is full of resources. Then why beg others. Why can’t learn how to tap the resources? The debt burden of India is very high. It is so high every person in this country is in a debt of Rs. 25,000 to foreigners. India is not having per capita income but per capita debt.
India has 124 crore people. This immense human resources, if we can employ for various purposes, India would have become very great.
China got independence in 1949 two years later than us. Still it enriched itself in such a way, it occupied one of the No.1 world countries, and industrially its impact can be seen all over the world. It conducted Olympics. Establishing SEZs it showed employment opportunities to the rural China. Waste lands are converted in to industrial centres. They were very strict to reduce population.
Japan was devastated in II world war. It frequently experiences earthquakes still it is industrially well developed. It is nearly in the size of Maharashtra state or less than it. Because of Maizi government, Japan was so successful. Industrially Japan developed a lot. We, instead of developing ourselves, go on begging from developed countries.
How far it is correct?
Where are we?
Why after 67 years, still we are in borrowing stage only.
Our C.M.s go to foreign countries asking them to come with investments.
The P.M. of India is also going to foreign countries and inviting funds to be invested in India or inviting them to establish industries in India. Is it not begging?
We should learn from China how Deng Xiao Ping developed it.
We should learn from Japan how Maizi govt. brought drastic changes.
Instead of going to highly developed countries and begging them for help is not good.
We should learn that they have not come to this stage all of a sudden miracle. It is a continuous process.
India has the largest number of educational institutions. Every year nearly 10 lakh students come out of these colleges. To our bad luck brain-drain is high. Brain-drain means intellectuals migrating to other countries for survival. These intellectuals develop those countries. Our educated youth go and serve other countries. So in HRD we are very poor. Whom to blame?
India is producing 4children per second. We produce children as if it is the only occupation we have. For take an example. We go to buy vegetables. We bargain while buying an item say brinjal. We see whether it is good, there is no damage, whether it is fresh or old stock, and so many things. Actually its cost may be Rs.10/ per kg. For this small amount we are so particular. Actually before producing a child we don’t see what they are going do with him? Can they feed them? Can they educate them? Can that child get an employment? If he cannot, can they feed him? They cannot educate him, cannot get employment, cannot give some property then what right they to give the child poverty.
We ask nothing.
In this case we throw everything on God.
We are very conscious of Rs. 10/- brinjal but not a child. That is the range of Indians.
Whom to blame?
7] Can’t we do?:-
Sir Arthur Cotton linked rivers and showed how it can be done and showed how water problem could be solved.
KL Rao also showed how to join rivers of India. No action is taken so far.
Sundarayya showed clearly how to join rivers at different places and more and more waste land can be turned into arable land.
We make everything political.
Instead of inviting funds if Indians are employed in joining the rivers more waste land can be brought into arable land.
If we cannot do that work, whom to blame for our poverty?
Why Indian corporate or billionaires are not invited to these works?
If we love India, we can do many things for the upliftment of India from this poverty, from this beggingness, from backwardness, and many more.
We should not blame others, we have to blame ourselves.
