Why I never would want to live in India!

I pride myself to be an Indian, at-least the cultural and historical part of it. I love how Hindu religion does not enforces anything on their followers – I don’t have to give up good things in life like Buddhist ( although I think thats mainly because of their interpretation ); My religion does not enforces me to follow a certain lifestyle/set of beliefs like Christians or Muslims. There might be cases when people go crazy over how a girl should behave and whats allowed or not, but I believe thats more because of many men and old grandmas want to be in control.

So, I hate the fact that I would not want to live there. Its not because of the pollution or how dirty every place is or how corrupted everyone is (and yes they are) or how many people are still so narrow-minded, but mainly because of the legal system. I keep reading stories after stories about brutality of Indian cops, and I am not only talking about the recent Goa incident; but also how its so freaking difficult to get justice in India. If a person commits a crime and by mistake the cops do their job, then for sure the legal system will allow them to remain free for at least a decade and then the case will be dropped; if you happen to be a famous celebrity then the public would want your freedom, even though you were connected to the terrorist group.

It gets even worse if a woman is raped, killed, or harassed, coz then not only one will be asked humiliating unnecessary questions but the society will end up blaming you and judging you as someone who deserved it. How can a country have such f*ed up legal system?

Actually, its not only the legal system, another would be Congress and their blind followers ( I am not saying other parties are any good, but this party set an example for more than 4 decades, obviously, there are going to be repercussions). Indian government is one example why no country should be allowed to have more than one generation running for election. The Gandhi family is praised by so many Indians and I still don’t understand why. Is it because they never did anything about the religious conflicts? ; because they created a society where a religion plays far more important role than justice? ( I am referring to that recent event in Lucknow where a student was beaten and prosecuted because he drew Hindu goddess painting ); coz they have managed to squander away so much money?; Coz, How Rahul Gandhi still want to continue with National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (NREGA) even though only 5% (so i read somewhere) of the billions of Rupees invested is used for it and still gets praised?

Its a shame that a country which has so much potential, culture, values, humanity do not have the basic governance.

  1. I am an Indian, in India. Can understand your feelings on this subject perfectly. 😦

    The parties? The truth is, every other party is much more regressive than the Congress is. At least Congress doesnt go around telling people what to wear, and not to celebrate Valentine’s…
