It's a wonder we are still alive all of us…Indians.
In most countries around the world, people follow mainly a couple of religions, speak one or two languages and eat the same food, mostly. And even after being more or less, history has witnessed some of the bloodiest battles and wars and revolutions in these countries.
Now, let's look at India..
Many religions, crores of gods, hundreds of languages, thousands of dialects in between…each and every building here is probably a mini india with people having different views on just about everything. That's our culture…a melting pot, hotchpotch whatever else u may call it.
Many many Indias exist within India. In spite of all this difference, we are blessed indeed, to come over our differences and still co-exist. I sometimes wonder with differences like chalk and cheese, how do we manage to all live and not kill each other?
Opposition about different things, stupid or otherwise, is natural. No two people think alike, and in India, no two people even eat and speak alike, largely. If you don't like what is being said, it's best to ignore it. You cannot blame the entire country for one persons thinking.
It's difficult to point out actually, what the Indian culture actually is.
It's the old with the new
Progressive with the regressive
First world science with third world superstition and so on and so forth.
But rest assured, it's a wonderful culture because, as mentioned earlier, we can oppose all we want, but at the end of the day, we will forget our differences and go back to our homes, put on the Tv and all of us together cheer India for the World Cup.
