How do you Define India? Yes,India is a developing nation, a culturally diverse country with thousands of languages, different customs and believes, world's largest democracy and lot more.
Yes, Mangalyaan is an Indian spacecraft which is orbiting Mars. India has powerful navy, air-force and standing army. The Information Technology revolution will completely change the life of Indians. It will create a lot more employment opportunities.
But it is said that for every step India took forward, it took two steps back. That indeed seemed to be the case for decades after Independence. The developing India which we see on internet media etc.. is just the Tiny part of India...
What is the actual condition of this country today? Is india good as a Democratic country?
There are many things which are funny in India. Much of these are true and Indians have learnt to live with these. Some of them are listed here. Some remarks reek of a pathetic mindset, others are plain stupid.
The Controversial Beef ban
Ruling government attempt to seize the people's right to eat what they wanted. But millions of Indians, including Dalits (formerly “untouchables” in the Hindu caste system), Muslims and Christians, have long consumed beef. It is one of the cheapest meats available, making it an attractive source of protein for India’s poor.
Vigilantes killing people in the name of Cow Protection
In yet another incident highlighting growing intolerance among people, a 50-year-old man was said to be killed by a mob in Dadri, Uttar Pradesh over alleged rumours that his family consumed and stored beef in their house.
A Cow Ministry
Protection of cow, regarded by Hindus as a holy animal, has become a political issue in the country. We know that. but now they are back on the news with a ridiculous plan on Cow Ministry. seriously? An entire department and a minister just for the welfare and protection of cow? All we can say is Holy COW!!!
The cows themselves have little to gain from the politics in their name.
The soon to be National Drink of India.
New Delhi has started selling cow urine more than milk in India, at a rate of Rs 80 per liter of urine.

Aadhar Cards for Cattle
Unique Identification Number for Cows in a Country where not every citizen has an Identy Card.
News stories of women from all over India being raped, beaten, killed are flashed across us day after day – and we all are aware of it.
Now take a look at what these leaders have to say about it. Try not to loose your temper.
| The great verdict by Mulayam Singh Yadav , Member of Parliament: "The poor fellows, three of them have been sentenced to death. Should rape cases lead to hanging? Boys are boys, they make mistakes. Two or three have been given the death sentence in Mumbai. We will try and change such laws...we will also ensure punishment of those who report false cases."
| When CMs give such solutions for tackling the increasing crime of rapes you really want to strip them of the Gandhi topi and everything else they acquired over and under the table, thanks to your vote.
Does not this remind you of what a certain Khap leader had said about girls being married at 16 so that their sexual needs are met and they don’t need to go elsewhere?
Be a Peacock in a world full of Ducks
Now this is epic! Nobody knew how peacock reproduce other than this honourable Judge. Kudos!!
| Theory about the mating process of peacock that too by a Judge : "He does not indulge in sex with peahen. The peahen gives birth after it gets impregnated with the tears of the peacock. A peacock or a peahen is then born"
And Education in India? its getting Much worse!
In Rajasthan, the history textbooks have been rewritten. There was silence on Mahatma Gandhi’s assassination by Nathuram Godse, and works of John Keats, William Blake and TS Eliot were out of English textbooks. Jawaharlal Nehru was erased and a chapter on Emergency, a dark period in Indian democracy in 1975, added.
Devnani, an electrical engineer associated with the RSS since college, called the process a cultural reform.
Its noteworthy that a few women in India are wearing cow masks to protest against sexism
The data is speaking for itself. All in all, India looks to be finally going to the next level from 2020 to 2025!
