    Just google it , indian history is entirely distorted to limits u cant even imagine

    the thread being already derailed hahah here's one quote from british
    Lord Macaulay’s address to the British Parliament on 2 February, 1835.

    "I have traveled across the length and breadth of India and I have not seen one person who is a beggar, who is a thief, such wealth I have seen in this country, such high moral values, people of such caliber, that I do not think we would ever conquer this country, unless we break the very backbone of this nation, which is her spiritual and cultural heritage, and, therefore, I propose that we replace her old and ancient education system, her culture, for if the Indians think that all that is foreign and English is good and greater than their own, they will lose their self esteem, their native culture and they will become what we want them, a truly dominated nation."

    that is the key phrase..how many unreported rapes are unaccounted for,

    and even in this country where **** is frowned upon there are a good deal of frapes unreported.

    My taxi driver was telling me that, when he visited India with this buddhist group, the tour guide put $100 in the passport to clear the custom. Otherwise their bags will be marked with chalk, and be so searched that it is not worth the trouble. He said they target certain type of people.

    Wow, bunch of ignorance in this thread.

    1) India doesn't have resources? LOL. (Really, that claim does not deserve any more attention).
    2) Political party is giving women box cutters to prevent rapes means that it is ridiculously unsafe for women. Well, that's rich coming from someone in a country where no woman walks around without pepper spray, and politicians want to arm school kids with AR-15s.

    India's problems are pretty simple. Poverty. And corruption. And it's pretty easy to establish the link between both. Eliminate corruption, and you will likely eliminate poverty, which would eliminate nearly every other widespread problem in the country.

    The country has tremendous natural and human resources. It has tremendous cultural resources which has the ability to easily accept new ideas and assimilate new/different cultures. What it lacks is (1) a sense of national identity (prior to 1947, there was no such thing as India) other than politically driven jingoism and (2) effective politics and bureaucracy.

    The 1st will be resolved with time (a matter of 20-30 years at most). No idea what can resolve the 2nd.

    More on-topic, the same corruption issues are what derails stuff like the India Federation. It's not an organization which tries to improve tennis, and success in tennis, but instead, is to give an opportunity to your political lackeys to make money and get free foreign trips for them and their families.
