India - Unity between the states...
I am seeing so many threads on defining who is a Hindu. I am given to wondering if we should discuss as seriously what makes Indians so inimical to their own neighbouring states...
Yesterday on my FB page, I am receiving notifications from a Kannada 'friend' who sends photoshop images of TamilNadu CM Jayalalitha portrayed like a 'Dog' begging for water and an old lady from Karnataka sticking out her finger and calling Jayalalitha a bad name. What mistake has Jayalalitha done in the Cauvery issue? Ofcourse I am not discussing Politics here, but what struck me hard in the images on the FB page, is the sheer enemity. There are hostile attacks on Tamilians in Karnataka which have happened in the past, same story in Maharashtra too... why all this?
I am reminded recently in USA, some other state, memory fails, brought out a T-shirt saying 'so-and-so-state STRONGER' following the 'BOSTON STRONG' phrase and everyone booed and mellowed it down so that it waned away completely... Whereas in India, still each state looks at its neighbors so inimically, I wonder why? We go everywhere and if don't speak the language of the locals, then we are ridiculed and we can find a bunch of jokes there belittling our food habits, our work ethics, our accent, what not?
So when is India going to change? What are your thoughts on this, readers?
