THE SLUMDOG WAVE AND CRAZE SWEEPS INDIA

KN RAO

I never thought that I and people of my generation will live to see an India in which the world of glamour will enslave the nation at the cost of higher and better values of life as now is happening in India. I cannot grudge it but still it is only my interest in sports which creates a point of identity with younger generation of Indians. In my American tours when I found the abysmal ignorance among the Americans I met, and pitiable it was, of many what I thought were more important aspects and events of world , I failed to establish the type of rapport that is needed between a visiting teacher and an enthusiastic audience.

Back home in fifteen years I found India getting swept by the Los Angeles like craze where I found younger Americans talk of Marily Monroe as though she was living and was still a living legend.

But now in India, we have a generation of educated people who come to study astrology and use their knowledge of this great subject to predict the outcome of the events like the Academy Awards as though it was equal to Nobel Prize. Glamour and entertainment is now superior to classical subjects, music , literature and ancient culture. You meet younger Indians who have never read the Mahabharata, the Ramayana, the Geeta or the Srimad Bhagvatam and many of them have not even heard about them.

You ask them about Shah Rukh Khan etc and they will reel off stories after stories and, if they learn astrology, even make predictions about them.

Here is one such instance, a case of brilliant prediction by a woman student who got a silver medal in our astrology examination, Acharya, is a very keen and successful astrologer now and a keen reearcher.

ALAS ! INDIANS HAVE NO PRIDE
sir ,
i appreciate your views always and this time also you wrote so well . I want to say something which annoys me very much .
Why indians want any nobel or Oscars ?
Why indians want gold medals in Olympics ?
the reality says we never can get because we never out up our own ideas , no devotion to indian culture , values have made an indian so virtual and bad that now he never feels bad to applaud a movie which shows india as poor . this makes a whole set of superstition in the people of the world
earlie rthey used to belive india is a golden bird
earlier they use dto belive india is a snake charmers country ,
then they believed india is a country of magicians
not very early they used to think india is a poor country
and oh no!
now they say india is a slum country .
where there is no pride of country , i shall never love to drink water , many times i feel ashamed of people who bring my country bad name and they applaud the film and they say "it showed the truth " , then what is the duty of an indian .
to vote politicians and get ruined .
when they know all.
why they do cheat people ,, why lies ,why left indian culture , the page 3 people would never reveal truth where they go in the night and do sins . they never want such truths to get public .
is so bad when i see indians , they flatter gandhi family , they flatter anyone , a proverb in hindi "oogtey sooraj ko sabhi pranam karte hain "
everyone salutes the rising sun .
it is our duty to help poor but how many of us help or give a job to poor .
in early times no one was poor
these invaders dutch portuguese , french muslims arabs looted india and made it poor .
now how can they come and shoot poverty in india.
and why .
is a nation's defamtion and lost pride
and alas! eeveryone cheers for the oscars and noone weeps for the drawbacks india suffers now.
what wa smy country and what they did to my motherland .
