    All the above is just the TIP of the iceberg, the list could be endless. BUT,
    if we don't see even a glimpse of that great India in the India that we see
    today, it clearly means that we are not working up to our potential and that if
    we do, we could once again be an evershining and inspiring country setting a
    bright path for rest of the world to follow.

    Hey, Aman! I am an Indian and your posts are getting even on my nerve and I am sure Paksiatnis must be pretty irritated.

    I can write equally interesting facts about India of how many kids are uneducated, how many are malnourished, how murderers are MPs of parties, how corruption is rampant, how low we are in infrastructure, how prices are breaking common man's back and so on.

    There is a big need for sea change.

    All these guys who have gone abroad and NASA scientists are whatever do not even send money home from official channels if havala offers a little high rate and one of those doctors killed his wife for dowry last year in US. So do not tell to much on that.

    Get a life!

      Where did you get these facts. Maybe some of them may be true, but algebra was first used by the arabs.

      Regardless of India's past glory, the fact remains that India is in a poor state today. The mongolians also ruled the world at some point, so did the muslims, and so did the spanish, but what happened in the past is irrelevant. It's now that matters. The entire subcontinent is in shambles. I don't understand your point.

          Im impressed Aaaman...

          But you know i still aint gonna be goin to India any time soon. As a Pakistani i got nothing against Indians.

          Im amongst the few pakistanis that think that Kashmir belongs with India. The reason why is cause if India gave kashmir away then the poor country will break u... Pakistanis dont get that.

                      The ancestors of the Pakis too were involved in most of the scientific inventions in India for India was one country with mostly one religion when all these inventions were made.
                      Unless Pakis want to disown their heritage Indians ( modern day India) have no right to claim all the inventions of their own.

                            You said

                            YES INDIA DOES HAVE THE 4th LARGEST MILLITARY IN THE WORLD W/ THE MOST MODERN WEAPONS IN THE 3th WORLD...

                            How about the snow shoes, I guess they were not included in you modernization list. Who is making decisions to buy equipments for your ARMY, somebody with his WATCH NEEDLES stuck on 1200. Get a life, but more shoes for your soldiers so they can walk on snowy mountains. I don't know if your CHIEF OF ARMY STAFF knows that they get heavy snow in KASHMIRE, next time when you send you TAILLESS JAWANS to fight make sure they are wearing shoes.
                            CHOW

                              Dear Aman B,

                              It's nice that you have put so much effort to dig up all these interesting positive aspects of your country, Akhand Bharat. Spin doctoring at it's very best.

                              Let me know if I am right but I suspect I am!
