The Third Largest Army in The World
When the British ships first landed the shores of Calicut, they did not see a land of resources, they saw a land of self-respect. They saw the land of Kings and queens, a land of righteous and free people who would go to any lengths to survive. They hated it, because they had spend their whole life in slavery of the queen.
The Easy India Co. could not directly wage a war against Indians because they knew, they stood no chance against the might of the civilization. Instead, they separated us, they stuck their fingers into the already present cracks into the society and widened them. What ensured was the collapse of a great civilization, who never actually recovered from the fall.
Ancient Indians proudly discovered '0', today we are proudly discover... nothing.
Ancient Indians where proud about their kingdom, be it the tyrant ruler or the stupid king, they carried the pride with them.
By the time, I reached my third year in Engineering, little Dilip Oak's Academies trump card started appearing in the classroom. These cards carried stars and stripes in their design and had complex English words which the students where practicing in the class room. I have never seen anyone so patriotic about the Indian flag anywhere. Have you?
Ancient Indians students used to travel thousands of miles into the ashrams of big saints. While the native-Americans where still doing ringa-ringa-roses in horrible costumes besides fire, we build Takshilas, the Nagalga University.
When Nandakumar Radhesham Ichargaonkar completed his engineering, he had high expectations in his life. With great effort he studied hard and had a good score in GMAT, which got him admission in a great University in the States.He went there to learn, obviously the University was happy to get some students at least, because the native Americans do not believe in college and Universities. He did not go there to learn something, he went there so he could be someone. He could have a foreign degree and he could settle in a better place than India. He survived ragging by White bullies, he survived tortures by his own countrymen who are already there before him and after a loan of Twenty Lakhs on his head, he finished his post-graduation. But there were fewer jobs for the Americans, how could one immigrant get a job? He panicked could not come back, so he decided to apply for PHD and hunt for a job, while at it.
When Ancient Indian woke up early morning, they regularly practiced Yoga, nowadays they still do Yoga, but they do it in the American Moksha Center.
Since ancient days, many civilizations were fascinated by Indian scriptures. Hitler send his Nazi army to study them, Jesus came down to India looking for them (alleged, not proved), Tibet did their research on Indian scriptures.
We have everything returned in the scripts, right from the first man on moon, called Bahubali, English translation, Armstrong to the exact time of a human being from a amoeba.
We have written proof of Newtons law of motion, thousands of years before Newtons science teacher was born, we also have the exact chemical formula written to prepare a nuclear weapon.
But then, Nandakumar Radhesham Ichargaonkar laughs at the fact and says these all are myths and stories. Finally what are we but just a poor, developing nation, all the stories from past are stories, stories told to amuse the kids at night.
What Nandakumar Radhesham Ichargaonkar believes that in India, the Varna system was made by Brahmins to rule over his caste, what Nandakumar Radhesham Ichargaonkar believes that the Indian rope trick is the only achievement his own country has made in last 10,000 years.
The blade that cut us for 150 years was so sharp, that the largest democracy in the world could not heal itself even after 63 years of Independence and the second largest workforce on the planet still hopes that they will be able to get a visa to travel abroad in search of better opportunity than stay in the own country to create opportunities.
