Oh, Poor India!
Poor India: The British made sure they fashioned a class of Indians who were brown in skin, but white in their thoughts. They were made up to dress British, eat British, think British and even dream British in their sleep. Today their descendants, the journalists of the English press, are thy worse enemies. They dress Western, eat Western, think Western and even dream Western in their sleep. What matters to them is not what might utter India‚s sages, avatars, gurus, wise men and yogis, who dress Indian, eat Indian, think Indian and even dream Indian, but what the western media, or Amnesty International will think about India. They are not interested at all by what the Bhagavad Gita, probably the world‚s most revelatory, most comprehensive, most relevant sacred book has to say, or how Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, India‚s 21st century avatar, could help. No, they would rather turn to Gustave Thoreau, Marx or Jean-Paul Sartre, people who have even lost relevance in he West, for a solution to thy immense problems.
Poor India ! When a Graham Staines is burnt alive, all of India‚s English press goes overboard in condemning his killers, but when 58 Graham Staines are murdered, they keep silent. Why ? What‚s wrong with Indian journalists ? This is plain common sense, logic, the most basic of human intelligence: people who kill in the name of God, can be called fundamentalists; people who ram planes full of innocent people on buildings full of other innocent people, should be called terrorists. But why should people who want to peacefully build a temple be also called fundamentalists ? Even those Hindus who brought down the Babri Masjid, after millions of temples were razed by Muslim invaders, did not kill a single soul in the process, whether it was right or wrong to do it . Yet, Islam‚s vengeance, which planted bombs in the heart of Bombay, with the help of the ISI and the tacit backing of Saudi Arabia, and killed hundreds of innocent people, was acceptable to India‚s "secular" journalists and was also labelled as "communal rioting". Today, Star News‚ anti-Hindu and pro-Muslim bias is so gross, that it should be laughed at. Unfortunately, it does damage by confusing India‚s middle and upper middle class, who are unsure of their moorings and on top of that, it gives India such a bad image in the eyes of the world.

[Paul Graham] : [Why Nerds are Unpopular|http://www.paulgraham.com/nerds.html]
As weíve seen, while sources of power with intrinsic value may merely descend from insight to platitude over time, the externally-valued have a shelf life. Perhaps the big warning from this is for those wishing to help others be successful, especially parents. As Paul Graham wrote, parents are like generals always fighting the last war. I remember seeing a teenager on CollegeConfidential complaining that their parents wanted them to stay home all summer and study for the SAT. Perhaps that would be a rational choice in their home countries, where college admissions were and still are based on grueling exams. Yet here the most advanced standardized math test for college admissions is the Math SAT Subject Test, where itís possible to miss 7/50 questions and still get a perfect score. Meanwhile, my own mother had occasional aspirations of being a ďwhite tiger,Ē and would often cajole me during my hacking sessions to ďstop playing JavaĒ and go study for the SAT.
