India embrace life's greater values.

idea posted by Abraham Paul Senior Telecom Consultant, FCOMNET- Future Groups
Compared to many other countries including the so called developed countries where most thrive in self indebted vanity, we Indians embrace and adhere to things that really matters and have greater value in life such as a well disciplined and long bonded family life,though we are seen unmindful of lesser things like public cleanliness, respecting queues etc.

Abraham I agree with you on family bonding which creates discipline in the family and society as a whole. On your second point every family all across India is very careful about the cleaning of the interior of the house but unfortunately outside of their house is a dumping ground for all the waste since this has not been taught at any place earlier.

India's position in the commity of nations have largely been respected because of the high ratings Indian civilizations have given to higher values in life.

idea posted by Brigadier (Retd) Sunil Chadha, Nil
come on guys !! when it comes to complaining we can go on & on forever. and we all claim we are proud of our country !!!! 'accommodation', 'unity in diversity', 'life's greater values’, ‘bonded family life’, ‘developed communications’, & ‘democracy’. Is that all ? what about our lovely countryside ? our wonderful people ? our culture, our traditions, our cuisines, our music & the arts, our wildlife, our flora, jungles, rivers, our metre & small gauge trains, our nostalgic trams. (gasp for breath) our architecture (both modern & historical). Our snake charmers, the melas, the gol gappas & pao bhajis, the wonderful monsoons, winters & rainbows. Must I carry on ? you know my song now – but I will mention one more. What about “US” – the wonderful community on toostep. Ever wondered how respectful are all our friends here (compare it with some other western social site sometime). Besides, it is a graet feeling to be able to interact with such a combination of brains, skills, experience & maturity. I have this feeling that although we claim pride for the nation, we need to be reminded about why we love this mother land of ours. Lets help remind each other. Let us fill this up – will this list grow longer than the list in our “complaints” department list ????

there are times when one fails to give words to what one wants. At times like this, it helps to put in words what one would not like to lose. Munawwar Rana is an Indian urdu poet of repute. He has written a short ghazal called “mohajir nama” (mohajir meaning displaced persons) with reference to those Indians who migrated to Pakistan at the time of partition. To say the least, it is immensely touching & can bring some tears as well. I understand the deeper meanings & feelings but I fear I’m totally ill equipped to do justice to a deserving translation – else it would have been here. Available on the net (google & utube), it is worth a read & listen. It will tell you what losing is all about. Do spare sometime. My humble respects for all who contributed here.

Great post and great ideas great comparisons. I am stunned when Mr. Murty sir quotes a quote of Marily Monroe, but on reading its suits very aptly. Here comes the experience Thanks a lot Murty sir for the quote. After all country is not just a geographical piece of land, it is all about people, their values, the traditions, the cultures. There are lot more differences in each of these, yet we all together and proud to feel as Indians. What more we need to.

What I like about India is…

idea posted by Brigadier (Retd) Sunil Chadha, Nil

We have been using this forum to complain about our environment. I must also concede that not all complaints have been with negative intentions – most of them are targeted at looking for improvements, brainstorming relevant issues. This post is basically the opposite of the Complaints & Grievance Department, where we may express what we like.

Let us see what all you feel is good about India & prevailing conditions. So here is a sentence which you may complete.

What I like about India is…

What I particularly like about India, is the fact that there are so many, who accept that somehow or the other we are all children of the "Oneness" or "God" or "". This deep belief is seen in the complicated methods used to avoid hurting another person - directly. It's a very cruel person who says negative things directly to another person. It's ok if we talk about them behind their back though. :)

Unity in Diversity

idea posted by Vinoy Scaria James CEO/MD/Director, Guida Joy Hospitality & Management Solutions.
It is just miraculous that by and large the people of India are accommodating of each other in spite of its huge diversity of religion, caste, race, class and cultures. Simply miraculous.

I support this statement of India being a miracle. Given all the difficult situations, we still manage to keep our sense of nationhood. As I added earlier, it is the beauty of India.

Vinoy I totally agree that we are always united as a nation even in difficult times and will keep on accommodating each other in time of of need. That is unique about our nation, this is probably unity in diversity, which is unique about India.

Economical growth despite all squabbles.

idea posted by KALIYAMOORTHY PHSEM, CTCI Corporation

With all the squabbles going around, India achieved ,economically, to a greater extent. I remember the days, the roads were sluggish & muddy to bring the cycle out to go school. A contrary to one what I see today a cemented one. Virtually, it takes 4 hrs to reach Chennai that was almost 12-16 hours earlier. More promisingly, railways' Duranto takes , just 24 hours to Delhi. An ordinary man were made to fly sky fulfilling ones' ever-longing aspiration. What a wonderful transportation we achieved.

Gone are the days, a guy is to wait for a mail for 15 days by Post. In the wing of an eye, information on your desk. A wireless communication reaching the cross-roots.

For many TV, Grinders, Laptop remained as only dream But, now,  many touched it. In my hamlet, I found were thatched house earlier but now, I find all concrete houses. This is not exaggeration . A fact I FEEL IT.

In 1970's , there were only 8 engineering colleges in the state but now, there are more than 10 in my district alone. 

Connectivity, Communication, transportation, Telecommunication, Education took a long stride across the society despite all evils created by undesirables. This is not an end to it. It aspires more to achieve in the years to come with its' all odds.

Just like unity amongst the diversity, bold reforms among political opportunism is also miraculous. The pace might not be as fast as it should have been but frankly I would love to carry on at this pace to accommodate the freedom to dissent that I enjoy today.

Democracy may not have been born in India, but frankly it seems to be best suited to nation like India. As Vinoy pointed despite all its diversity we manage to move forward. This is miraculous.

Tons of preachers and barkers...

idea posted by Rajiv Azad (Thinks out of Box) Communications, Branding and Content Development , Leading Ahmedabad based organization

Well many of you may call me cynic, but I must express my conscience...what I like about incredible India is... Hypocrisy of decision makers, influencers, cult figures and pretentious beliefs...about 40% of population still falls under the embarrassing BPL category, we call ourselves as emerging super power, we take pride in calling ourselves as nation where women/ females are worshiped, the same great nation witnesses rape of 2 women every hour...we are an agrarian economy, respects farmers, in the same incredible India every 12 hour a farmer takes extreme step...tons of preachers and barkers...these so called custodians of Indian culture hardly considers these quandaries as issues...tons of preachers and barkers, only handful of Baba Amte, Rajendra Singh, Mother Teresa...
