*** One reason could be seen right here in assamnet -- that certain assamese
denigrate their own as the CAUSE of their problems, that they are
incompetent, corrupt, lazy and what have you, and thus deserve to be
exploited. They spread the myth that people of Assam are that way due
to a genetic disposition or cultural ethos. Of course the accusers
themselves are ABOVE that. They must have escaped the genetic curse
by some divine selection process.
Points to the Indian system of education and its failure to promote
critical thinking further stymied by a pre-conceived notion of a
problem or solutions there-for.
We are just as competent, as good, as industrious as anybody else in
the world. Just look at all those who left. It is not the air or the
water of their adopted lands or that they are somehow waded out of a
better gene-pool that assured their successes.
Unfortunately Indian governmental system, further degraded by the
complicity of the ruling class in Assam, has created the environment
of low expectations, of state policy-manufactured winners and losers
in life's many lotteries -- in every sphere of human endeavor; helped
not only the robbing of our natural assets but continues to try and
make it appear to be the natural law, and have systematically
destroyed the incentives to be productive while being accountable to
society and the common good.
I hope folks like yourselves will not take this bull-**** lying down
ever again, and tell those self-loathing,spineless and clueless
blabber-mouth patriot wannabes off at every opportunity you get.
Defiantly as always and proudly as an Assamese,
