Indians are known for their chauvinism ,love for bollywood (tolly , dolly, polly's included) , drop-of-hat vengeance plans,askance looks , leg-pulling tendencies , love for western culture and most varied ways of giggling. Now more than 60 years independent , we are still bounded , and because I am not a sanctimonious lecturer and I am still a callow young man , I am not going into details of it. All considerate and concerned bunch of Indians know this fact , that we are bounded. Being the largest democracy is in itself chaotic literally. Take a mosquito , housefly and honeybee ,put them together and appoint an earthworm as the leader , you have chaos.Our sensex is chaotic and only thing we are most concerned about is whats the current Rs. --> $ conversion , like dollar would be our perfect Elysian plan , our gateway to heaven.
On our fresh mornings , when we wake up and look outside the window , we see something chaotic (Kids crying , 15 different kinds of vehicles with 15 different kind of horns blazing) , and when we do that famous trick (Close your eyes , think of something good , open your eyes ,take a deep breath and everything looks just fine) , it doesn't work , what you see post-trick is 30 different vehicles with 28 different kind of horns and more kids crying.And all you do is take a deep breath and carry on with your day.
The problem with India is the part where we all 'start' thinking. We have got so much to defend that we have almost forgotten how to fight and take over something.Take for example Indian media , it shows you the best of the worst happening in the country and God do we like it !! .We absolutely love it when pigs fly (H1NI) , we absolutely care about why the Khans of the industry are not getting along with each other , and we are so seduced by the the game of politics.What fun would it be if a leader campaigned , without fighting the opposition? , What fun would it be if Dhoni performs everytime ,at the end of the day , its Indian team , their performances should be chaotic! , Indian Team on a bad day can lose to Kenya , but its fine with us because we are used to it.
We absolutely love it when western countries praise Indian software people.Obviously , if I had 10,000 people working for me even in Ghana , I will send them gratitude notes.Keep working guys , you are the cheapest available !
The solution to all this and more lies in one simple idea: 'The Way We Think' . If we had just stop worrying about debts , we wouldn't get more debts. Its like this energy flowing in this Universe , thinking about debts attracts debts , law of attraction. Or take for example "I don't want any more terrorist attacks" , the law of attraction starts working , you have more of them. Anti-war policies attracts more wars , it is very obvious the coming wars would be bigger and more debilitating. Indian techies have always been worried if US would , ever in future, start downsizing on Indian software people , there you go , its happening right now. But this law never works in the wrong directions always. We always thought (mostly because of our mindsets) , we can't have a stable Government in India , there you have it , Congress 10 years in power. Law of attraction doesn't care what you think , it just works . where your mind is.
So how does it help India? , So if you understand what I just said , the solution is clear. Instead of worrying if China would take us over (which it already has, law worked!) , focus on strengthening India.Instead of worrying about terrorist attacks (and begging Pakistan ) , strengthen our security networks. Instead of worrying about rising prices , focus on alternative contingent plans.
The law is simple , wherever your focus is , it will happen. Its like the general attitude problem that some people have .If you worry about 'not being nice' , you will end up hurting someone eventually.India needs an overhaul.

Shall we start thinking better .....now?
