India , the world’s largest democracy, tormented by inflation, scams worth thousands of crores, bad economy and tainted by corruption. The current scenario of our country reminds me of Sir Winston Churchill’s vituperative statements “Power will go to the hands of rascals, rogues and freebooters. All Indian leaders will be of low calibre and men of straw. They will have sweet tongues and silly hearts. They will fight amongst themselves for power and India will be lost in political squabbles. A day would come when even air and water would be taxed.” Incredibly we’ve worked very hard to prove him right.
My country sees the best and worst of situations almost every day. The country which worships the female gods also abuses its female population. Although there seems to be significant success in technology and research on one side, but there are slum dwellers trying to make a living on the other side. We as a nation not only win the gold medals, but also bump into terror attacks every now and then.
