Why ‘the Indian way’ is so different from the West
A common complaint in India is that the country is “too backward”.
This, says Shashank Chaudhary, a writer, has been fuelled by the belief that Indians are so slow to catch up to the West and are incapable of making “big strides” in the area of education.
It is a view that has made many people feel alienated.
So why are so many Indians still not able to grasp this fundamental fact about their country?
This is what we’re going to talk about today.
Shashink Chandhary is a writer based in Bangalore, India.
