We live in a dynamic society. We live along with people who have their agenda in working about the society. Our country is moving at such a tremendous rate that we have the chance to observe three generations working together with viewpoints so diverse from the preceding generation that it is indeed mind boggling .
Currently I had the chance to be a part of the debate that I liked to call “Generation Gap”. It boasted boldly about the issue of living abroad. I must say that I am fortunate enough to have lived in both the worlds. and thrust there is no grass on the either side. There are some fundamental mistakes with the social structure to cope with essential problems.
We Indians as a race are very smart. The best working brains of the world come from our country. But that is exactly where we face our first slap. We work. We don’t invent. We don’t lead. We just work. The Western analysts have been smart enough to use this exact work ethic of ours against us. American corporations know what we earn when we live in India. America is the major importer of brain power in the world, and India is the major exporter of brainpower in the world. This little understanding has led to a convenient relationship between the two countries. Americans have analyzed our economy, our pay days and they know that we will work for dimes when they want to earn their dollars. So they come up with exciting opportunities by approaching Indian companies for job offers. As we are monetary pressured from our families we grudgingly take the opportunity and ship our brains of to work there and lead a dollar filled life. Sounds good doesn’t it?
If it does then you are the disease that’s spreading around India. Monetary returns. That is all we are after these days. Earn big and Live Big. That is exactly what we want and I can come up with numerous and I mean numerous examples. I can pick some guy of the street and that’s what they want. And I don’t mean a poor person, I mean a guy who has grown up with a silver spoon in his mouth. The sad thing is, these people have the ability to change the world or better yet change the country to actually kick out the ones that think they understand what our country needs (I guess everyone can guess who all I am hinting at). Now you might question what is wrong with this? Well okay imagine this situation. When I was in eighth standard in the States we had scientific calculators to work on our geometry, algebra, science sums, etc. And as I grew older I became more stagnant. My brain could hardly multiply, divide mentally. My brain dulled. And therein lays the biggest threat to human existence. A dull brain. America is a stagnant nation. It never grows it just exists. And we fail to understand that. The importance of staying in our country is not that we are patriotic or it’s our duty. But it is because we have to grow. The difference between an American and an Indian is the difference, or more importantly the thin line, between being a “Rich Donkey” or “Growing Human”.
