Recently I happened to meet an American client in Technopark. I was talking to her in the cafeteria and in the mean time we had a chat bout both the countries. I wanted to have a contrast with each other. While talking I got a fantastic appreciation from her for being an INDIAN. Now if you say its coz of the merits here you people are wrong. she said in USA if U don’t get water for one day people would file case in the court against the authority...if your neighbours dog barks loudly they will file complaint against the neighbour for nuisance...if one stone in a road is plugged out people will throw it against the road departments...if someone slaps or calls a bad word on you then he or she will be fined...and similarly thousands of things which we Americans can hardly bare and when I came here in INDIA I was amazed...how people are living in here is amazing..they are surrounded by millions of problems and yet all smile together and are happy...roads are shattered even then people drive smiling...girls are raped and her parents live in silence...country is corrupted yet everyone tries to live out of something which they make their own without complaining...no food yet people are happy to eat one time a day...no salary hike yet people wait patiently for that one day....police calls bad words on elder people if it was in America they would have lost their job by then...politics created bullies yet the good class lives happily side by them..small roads yet people just pray to god that they reach home safely other than abusing the government....in short this country has learned to go through all the problems and strive hard for their future...yet are very patient and sweet that they cope up with all the problems...I don’t know if its coz of the people so patient that the leaders exploiting this silence into their gains..If we Americans were such a silent community our country would not have reached anywhere now...what a fantastic country is this..!!! what a fantastic people...hats off to the people of INDIA for being mentally so strong to live in the midst of all these million problems silently patiently and strongly......the greatest people I have ever seen....I almost started crying after this.........
