Cross-posted from Facebook Dec 8 2012

All of India‘s problems – political, social, economic, religious, education, sports even – are persisting through decades and centuries because Indians, as a social or national unit, are incapable of taking cohesive action against entrenched power figures; real or perceived. The French Revolution would never have occurred in India, nor the American Revolution or Civil War. Indian history is nothing more than a list of regime changes in various power centres. Under the veil of pious nonchalance, we are simply too afraid of the mai-baaps among us to bother changing things for the better.
