I am moving the pertinent posts by Sri Yamaka and others to this centralized thread on this topic so that the other topics need not be involved
uncle Yams, my request. kindly come out of this..
this situation reminds me of what an atheist michael gorbachev once said "certain people in united states are driving nails in to this structure of our relationship, then cutting of the heads. So the soviets must use their teeth to pull them out"
if you wish to stay away in discussing with few, thats a wonderful idea, than digging about past.
btw, uncle, as usual, pls come back to your favourite topic 'Rs.150/Day
Nice hearing from you.
Lots of water under the bridge... I have moved on
To recall, I want to go back to my Original Question
"Yaarukaha Azhuvan Yamaka?"
For the nearly billion people who are locked inside "the Gates of Hell of Poverty" in India.
"Why are they so poor that many go hungry everyday, who can't make more than Rs. 150 per day per person?"
I opine that the basic reason is the Fatalism propounded by the Holy Books of Religions in India.
My posts have been one way or the other to substantiate this claim. I expect the Believers to give their alternate view.
In my historical perspective, Indians once lived in great style, opulence and flair (Cf Mehrgarh and Indus Valley Civilization); they were the envy of the world before the Industrial Revolution (so much so every Tom, Dick and Harry wanted to invade us and subjugate us to exploit our natural resources and hard sweat and blood).
Why, then, Indians become very Divided and thus Weak?
I opine that because of the rigid Caste Hierarchy in the Indian Society propounded by the Ancient Religion. I expect the Believers to give their alternate view.
In this regard, the recent movie by AR Murugadoss - 7am Arivu - is very revealing, although it is historically very inaccurate.
Please recall the last few lines of his closing comments.
