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.
