After seeing India at the bottom of the world on educational standards and at the bottom on Asia on the standards of its bureaucracy, Raghbendra Jha today pointed out (in The Australian) that India ranks at the bottom of the world's sporting standards on a per capita basis. The least competitive of all nations.
In a moment of lucid thought (such information being disruptive to one's mental peace) it struck me that India does provide a great service to the world, after all.
For someone to be at the top, someone else has to be at the bottom! And India provides that "service" wonderfully well.
The rout by Australia of India's "famed" cricket team yesterday led to the following headlines today (in Australia): "A nation's morale replenished". If nothing else, the Indians have made the Australians REALLY HAPPY. I also know of someone who has made a pile of money by betting against India!
There you go: the worse you do, India, the better others feel.
That's a positive contribution to the world, isn't it? I'm sure your ancestors would be very happy.
Carry on being corrupt, incompetent and unimaginably stupid.
Don't bother about the message of good policy that I bring. That will make you succeed. And you don't want that, do you?
