What is your perception of India as a country ?
Have you ever visited ? Did it change your pre-conceived notions ? If you haven't visited , would you want to and why ?
i wrote a hub about this to a previous question
umm, sigh...well. i am always amazed how such a large and chaotic place functions.
i am by passport considered an indian, but on average get asked 10 times a month which country i am from...
the corruption , the noise, the pollution, the tremendous disregard for a variety of simple and basic laws fluster and frustrate me. my decision of not paying a bribe no matter what costs me plenty in time and effort. so that is one thing that i have had to face and seen many others face. and this is when one belongs to the upper middle class. i cant even start to imagine how the farmers and other lower middle class and other workers manage.
the other day, i read a statistic - which said 250,000 -350,000 farmers have committed suicide over the last 17 years ( officially) - what kind of a number is that? think about it?
and un officially ( which is another word for truthfully) its over 4 times that amount.
having worked with many NGO's i see how they mis use money given for good causes, how corporates in India are no better than any in the west, but much better at hiding their gains ( thank you Switzerland)
on the positive side. i have met many a beautiful soul here. some so lovely that words fail me.
the food...oh, don't get me started here. its super super delicious.
No, I have never been, but would love to go. When I think of India my impression is one of overwhelming colour. I would have problems encountering the abject poverty which exists and also the sheer number of people. I imagine the food would be exquisite and I am told the people of India are very open and welcoming.
