It does not matter about attrition rate. We have to see how India's human capital is doing.

How is India’s manpower? Is India’s manpower improving or not? I say that no matter what happens, India has now reached a stage where she has tried everything through trial and error and learned from trial and error and become smarter. No matter what happens, I say that, it is guaranteed that with every passing day, the number of high school graduates entering the job market continues to increase. With every passing day, it is guaranteed that the number of university graduates entering the job market continues to increase. With every passing day, it is guaranteed that the number of ambitious Indians entering the job market continues to increase. Therefore, it is guaranteed that Indian’s manpower will only keep improving and become more and more educated and ambitious and competitive. As the older generation die and the younger generation replace them, India will only keep improving. As India’s manpower becomes more and more educated, ambitious and competitive, there will be pressure to move from big government to small government. As India’s manpower becomes more and more educated, ambitious and competitive, there will be pressure to move from a socialistic economy to capitalistic economy. As India’s manpower becomes more and more educated, ambitious and competitive, there will be pressure to make the private sector the engine of growth in India. But we need to maintain social stability so that India can continue to improve; and we wait and see how India looks in year 2030. No matter who the next Prime Minister is, India will keep improving because her human capital is improving with every passing day. One day in the future when India grows at 10% GDP growth rate she would have proved to the world that it is possible for a developing nation to have rapid economic growth rate without giving up one person one vote.

You can say that Second World War was a battle between Capitalism, right wing dictatorship, and left wing dictatorship. In this case, the capitalist group teamed-up with the left wing dictatorship to defeat the right wing dictatorship. Militarily, the winners were the capitalist nations and the left wing dictatorships. It was the team work of capitalist nations and left wing dictatorships that defeated the right wing dictatorships. After the Second World War in 1945, the world was divided into two camps: the capitalist nations camp and the communist dictatorships camp. Instead of joining one of the two camps, nations like India espoused the middle path, namely the non-aligned group and socialism. Unfortunately, what India got from socialism is slow growth and high unemployment. Now both USSR and China have dumped communism and have espoused capitalism. India too is switching from socialism to capitalism. It seems to me that everybody is eventually supporting capitalism.

Many years have passed since 1945. India is in a better shape now. Her human resources are more well developed. Her literacy rate is higher.

In the past, India has tried many ways, but now she has reached a stage where she will only keep improving with each passing day.

Let's keep it simple. The Indian government will and should be busy building infrastructure like transportation and utilities. The government should also leave the economy alone. The onus is on the people to find a niche and create their own wealth. For some people offering the cheapest labor is their niche; yes, even cheap labor is a niche for some people. In any case, the onus is on the people to find a way to move from rags to riches. The onus is on the government to give the infrastructure. There is good news. There is rising SELF-CONFIDENCE among Indians. As the older generation die and the younger generation take over, Indians are improving both mentally and physically. It takes self-confidence to drive a tractor, truck, automobile, be a street food seller, run a small business, move from one city to another, move from village to city, move from city to village, or change your profession, or venture into a new occupation from an old one. It takes self-confidence and ambition to believe that failure is a badge of honor, and nothing to be ashamed of. It takes self-confidence and ambition to believe that failure is the stepping stone to success. As the older generation of Indians die and the younger generation take over there is rising self-confidence and ambition among Indians. With every passing day the number of entrepreneurs in India continues to increase. With every passing day, the number of high school graduates continues to increase. With every passing day the number of university graduates continues to increase. That's it. India will keep improving. India will never go back to the bad old days.



My dream is that India achieve 10% GDP growth rate without giving up one person one vote. If India can achieve 10% GDP growth rate without giving up one person one vote, then she would have set new standards for the developing world. The new standard would be that it is possible to have rapid economic growth in developing nations without giving up one person one vote. India should help to create a better world. We do not want to go back to the bad old days of fascism, socialism, and communism. Capitalism with international trade and investment is the only way that works.

Should India allow foreign direct investment in the retail sector? I say, absolutely. Why? Read on.

We are now discussing the retail sector in India. There is the family owned business on the one hand and the private corporate business on the other hand. There is no difference between family owned business and caste owned business. Remember that one family is one caste. So, a mom and pop store is owned by one caste. In sharp contrast, the private corporation is owned by numerous stockholders. Since the mom and pop store belongs to one family and one caste, it may have a caste bias in its activities.

Unlike a private corporation, the mom and pop stores do not have a perpetual life. When the mom and pop die, they close shop and all the employees become unemployed.

Next, let us discuss the private corporation. A private corporation belongs to numerous stock holders. The stock holders belong to numerous castes; and so all castes will have equal opportunity for employment in the private corporation. Also, a private corporation has a perpetual life. Through mergers and acquisitions the private corporation will perpetuate itself and keep going and ensure employment to the employees. For the mom and pop store, it only lasts for the life of the mom and pop; but for the private corporate store, the employees will have jobs because private corporations can perpetuate themselves through mergers and acquisitions.

So, India should allow foreign direct investment in the retail sector.

Valor and conquering other nations is pretty out-dated. In contemporary warfare, as missiles replace guns, the infantrymen plays a secondary role to aircrafts and tanks.The age of gun wielding warlords is over. You cannot conquer other nations any more that easily. The world has changed and is becoming increasingly multi-polar. We have had the First and Second World War. To prevent other wars, we have the United Nations. From now onwards it would be education, work, and a freemarket global economy. Let's remember two words: education and work. Under a one person one vote system and capitalistic system, we will use education and work to get ahead. It has been proven that capitalism is the only way that works. An increasing number of Hindus are beginning to realize that.

Let us take the case of Japan. Before the Second World War, Japan became militaristic. She went to war. She was defeated by USA. Japan surrendered; and you might add that she surrendered to the best nation, namely USA. If Japan had surrendered to another nation, then it would be a very different Japan today. The USA promoted one person one vote and capitalism to the Japanese. The Japanese changed completely. Through trial and error the Japanese realized that capitalism is the way forward. They became a peaceful nation. Using one person one vote and capitalism, she rebuilt her economy. Today, she has the highest literacy rate in the world. Japan is a developed nation. Japan is no longer militaristic and remains a loyal ally of USA.

Capitalism is not about controlling the economy. Capitalism is about de-controlling the economy. Capitalism means small government is better than big government. Most importantly, India's human resources have to change so that they can use capitalism to get ahead. It is hard to impose capitalism on an unwilling population, no matter how good the leader is. What we are beginning to see is that more and more Indians are beginning to realize that only capitalism works. After more than 60 years of independence, and after trying many ways, Indians are finally beginning to realize that capitalism is the way forward. Millions of Indians, through trial and error, have finally found capitalism. Since Indians tried many ways, and finally found capitalism through trial and error, you have to give credit to Indians. You have to give credit to trial and error. Since India's gains are through trial and error, it may be safe to say that it her gains are irreversible. Irrespective of who the next Prime Minister is, Indians will continue to use trial and error. You have give credit to trial and error. There is rising SELF-CONFIDENCE among Indians. As the older generation die and the younger generation take over, Indians are improving both mentally and physically. It takes self-confidence to drive a tractor, truck, automobile, be a street food seller, run a small business, move from one city to another, move from village to city, move from city to village, or change your profession, or venture into a new occupation from an old one. It takes self-confidence and ambition to believe that failure is a badge of honor, and nothing to be ashamed of. It takes self-confidence and ambition to believe that failure is the stepping stone to success. As the older generation of Indians die and the younger generation take over there is rising self-confidence and ambition among Indians. With every passing day the number of entrepreneurs in India continues to increase. With every passing day, the number of high school graduates continues to increase. With every passing day the number of university graduates continues to increase. That's it. India will keep improving. India will never go back to the bad old days.

Both my parents are Indian and Hindu; I'm an evolutionist.

Indian Hindu culture is a changing culture. As the older generation die and are replaced by the younger generation, Hindu culture is changing. We will never ever go back to the bad old days of caste and class discrimination. Developed nations like Germany, Switzerland, and Japan rarely discuss religion; religion is a non-issue among Germans and Swiss.

The Abrahamic religions are Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. The non-Abrahamic religions are Hinduism, Buddhism, etc. Hinduism is a de-centralized religion and therefore lacks a central authority. Since Hinduism lacks a central authority, it is capable of change, which is its strength. Being de-centralized, there are many kinds of Hinduism. Hindus believe that there are many ways to achieve merger with GodHood. There is no last or final prophet for Hindus; there is no last or final guru for Hindus; there is no last or final rishi for Hindus: the Hindu world continues to produce rishis, yogis, and gurus. It is a changing world and therefore we have to change with the world; and there are many new things to learn; and therefore a last prophet or last guru or a last book is not possible in the Hindu world.

Amitabh Bachchan's family married different kinds of Indians. May be he will be the role model for other Indians and movie stars.

Let's keep it simple. It does not matter how Hindus got caste, dowry, or sati. The origin of caste, dowry, and sati are a thing of the past. The past is the past. The present and the future are important. The good thing about Hindus is that they are capable of change. They are changing. They will continue to change. As the older generation of Hindus die and are replaced by the younger generation, the Hindus change. Even in marriage, especially in urban areas, some Hindus fall in love and get married. Some young Hindus go against the wishes of their parents and elope and get married. You cannot blame the younger generation. They are heterosexuals and therefore they like persons of the opposite sex. Males and females will find ways to meet and fall in love. No matter how hard we try to keep them apart, they will find ways to meet. Even if we use the army, navy, and air force to prevent males and females to meet, the teenage boys and girls will still find ways to meet. If the parents are too strict, then the teenagers will elope; and the parents will lose their loving child.

Let's take the case of eve-teasing. Eve-teasing means boys flirting or making advances to girls. Let us suppose that we use the police to prevent eve-teasing. Let me ask you a question. Do the police men eve-tease? I'm sure that some of them do. The policemen are human beings too, and they are also heterosexuals. It is natural for males to be attracted to females; and for females to be attracted to males. If a heterosexual male does absolutely nothing to make advances to females, there is something wrong with him. Besides, I think females do expect males to make the first move; and when the male does make the first move, she calls it eve-teasing or harassment. People who oppose eve-teasing are hypocrites. I tell you that there are too many hypocrites in India.

There is the Hindu scriptures on the one hand and the Hindu people on the other hand. The Hindu scriptures cannot change. That is, what's written cannot be unwritten. On the other hand we have the Hindu people. As the older generation of Hindus die and the younger generation take over, Hindus are changing. What did you learn? The Hindu scriptures cannot change, but the Hindus can. That's it. Let's keep it simple.

The strength of Hindus is their capacity to change with times. Hindus have changed, and will continue to change with the times. We have to wait for the older generation to die. That's all. Let's keep it simple. As the older generation die and the younger generation take over, what we are seeing is that caste is increasingly becoming a boring topic of discussion. What excites Indians is probably Bollywood and cricket.

As regards to worshipping linga or rats or cows or drinking cow urine, I frankly do not care. I do not care what people do in their private lives. When it is time to work, they must work to get paid; and after work they can worship linga or rats or do any thing they feel like. Mind your own business. What people want to worship, after work, is none of your business. I have already explained that India is a changing nation. Right now India's economy is doing well. She is busy building infrastructure like transportation and utilities. Using science, technology and capitalism India will raise living standards. That's enough for me. Let's keep it simple.
