India has finally achieved the nexus of social, political, and economic growth. Therefore, more money should rightfully be available for public expenditure. However, the problem is too much corruption, graft, and malpractice in India. The public expenditure disappears and never reaches the masses. While some politicians and bureaucrats enrich themselves, others live in poverty, and children suffer from malnutrition. In dharmic philosophy it is about soul and soul; or soul against soul. The rich soul denying the entitled rights of the poor soul is not acceptable in dharmic philosophy. The rich soul denying the just claim of the poor soul is not acceptable in dharmic philosophy. Th established rights are the established rights; the poor souls can demand their rights. We have to use dharmic philosophy to overcome the corruption, graft, and other malpractice problems. So, what do we do. Be strong. Make sure that you do your daily exercises to produce a stress-resistant mind. Only a stress resistant mind can be fearless and demand the rights of the masses. You have to start with daily exercises. Keep pumping iron. Keep weight lifting daily. Keep doing isometric exercises. This is commonsense. India has good economic growth. Therefore, there must be a commensurate increase in public expenditure. But corruption, graft, and malpractice is a problem. The solution is keep pumping iron. Also, use your voting rights.

(Let me digress for a moment and define the soul. In dharmic philosophy the soul is the life-force that beats your heart ;and inhales and exhales your lungs even when you are sleeping, dreaming or in a coma.)

India is undergoing rapid urbanization. The older generation of Indians are dying and the younger generation are replacing them. Both urbanization and generational change will bring changes to India, socially, politically, and economically. With every passing day, India is changing. In the mean time, please remember that health is also wealth. Therefore, just get up in the morning, do your daily exercises, and then please go to work. If you do have work, then you are lucky because something is better than nothing. We will have to wait and see how India looks in year 2030. It is not good to fret too much. Be physically fit, take life one day at a time, and keep going. We have to wait and see how India looks in year 2030. Physical fitness is a good way to break the boredom. Play cricket if you need to. No matter how poor you are, sports can be fun.

Another important thing is that, Dharmic people should not be anti-rich people. That is, dharmic people should be pragmatic and practical. Dharmic people must accept that rich people are useful because they hire poor people. Please be polite and respectful to rich people because they hire poor people. If there are lots of rich people, then there will be more jobs for poor people. Rich people buy goods and services from poor people. Rich people like to hire educated and physically fit people and people of good character. So, the onus is on poor people to prepare themselves to be hired. This is called PREPARATION. Preparation is both physical fitness and education. If you do not excel in education, then please excel in physical fitness so that you can be useful to the employer. Therefore, never ever be anti-rich people.

There is a shortage of roads, schools, electricity, etc. Tempers may flare. There is a need to have a stress-resistant mind to survive in this quagmire. One of the greatest gifts you can bestow upon yourself is a stress-resistant mind. A stress-resistant mind is a stable mind. Despite all the quagmire, you have to continue to keep a stable mind. Try pumping iron. Pumping iron will give you a stable mind; and a stable mind will help to keep your blood pressure down, despite the quagmire. If you do not like pumping iron, then try some other sports.

Sometimes you feel groggy, grouchy, and moody. The solution is exercise. Exercise is a good way to clear the mind. Remember that China gets more medals in the Olympic Games than India.

If you cannot afford to buy dumbbells, then you can do some exercise using construction bricks or any thing that has some weight.


Health is wealth. So, get up in the morning, do pumping iron, and then go to work. Neither you nor I know how India will look in year 2030. Year 2030 will come when it comes. We just have to wait for year 2030. In the mean time, just get up in the morning, do your exercises, and go to work. Take life one day at a time and keep going. ThatÂ’s all.

India is the vanguard of dharmic philosophy; and I think the world knows that.

Don't take him seriously. He is one jackass, trying to spread anti-Indian sentiments through out the various fora. He is the same breed as "truthslap", "azzatonic" etc. Just ignore them.

Too often you hear some boastful Indian and the propagandists in the west name democracy as an "economic" advantage that India has over China, without understanding or rather choose to ignore the fact that it is exactly democracy which is hampering India's growth.

Thank you, Mahinder. Another Indic person like me who stands up to this rabies-infected wolf and his foaming stupidity. He is no better than white Nazis or Arab terrorists. How dare he pretend to speak on behalf of Indian people?

No, democracy and western-style freedoms are some of the best things in India's favor. So is a large pool of English-knowing educated people.

I wouldn't use India to market the merits of democracy. Its poor, dirty and corrupt. Just saying.
