Thank you Thane Richards for expressing this so well. It is a shame that a few Indians have lost their morality for money. I like your question, "Has India become so desperate for rapid economic growth, so blinded by the promise of prosperity, that she has forgotten basic humanity? It seems that, in the race towards higher GDP, the majority of India is willing to inject itself with the steroids of bigotry or ruthlessness. Ethics be damned"
In my articles, I have expressed similar thoughts "all that prosperity Hitler brought was lost completely by ignoring the the human aspect of development." Modi's arrogance is amazing, no regrets? He has a lot of praischit to do before he heads India. His Nakshatras are not in his favor at this time, until he shows humility, how can you have an arrogant man run our country? All the money that is thrown will be down the tube. Indians finally are made of some good morals and ultimately morality triumphs.
A few of my articles, all of them have been reproduced by many Newspapers.
