Tibet: The Truth (A Political History)


Indians are 'lazy', must work hard like Chinese

New Delhi: Indians are "lazy" and must work hard like the Chinese, Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama said here today.

"As a critic, I feel sometimes people in India are lazy. You should work hard. Look at the Chinese, they work very hard," he said.

In a lighter vein, he also said, "Wherever the Chinese go, they make China towns. However, nowhere in the world there are any 'India towns'."However, negating China's economic growth, the Dalai Lama attacked it for "lacking" values like transparency and free information which were important for a successful democracy.

"Money is important. Nobody is denying that. But there are other values like democracy, respect for others' views... these are the foundations of successful democracy," the Tibetan spiritual leader said.

He also referred to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's recent remarks in which he talked about China progressing more than India economically but the country having other fundamental values -- democracy, openness, transparency, free information, independent judiciary -- which the Chinese lack.

The Dalai Lama was speaking at a function organised by the Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) to commemorate the 100th birth anniversary of Mother Teresa.

I believe that most Shugdens and the religious freedom as well as the improved lifestyle has made life easier for many as the feudal system of serfdom made the majority of tibetans virtual slaves. Some would still like to preach Rosseau's concept of the noble savage but life is better with a full stomach and not being a slave with better opportunities. As even the Dalai Lama himself said a little too late, he was going to begin some reforms in Tibet. The retrospectoscope is always 100% correct but the real question is would he have done it or is this an afterthought.

Brainwash eventually will fail, agreed. But what makes you think Chinese people are "backwards and amoral"? IF really so, why are so many Americans afraid of China's rise?

You farm long-term leased land, don't you? How can slaves lease land? Or you mean in Tibet before 1950?

I wonder where would the North Korean put Tibetans on the World Happiness Index.
