The Moral Double Standards of Indians

I warn you, my posts are intended to be ridiculing and offensive for many, but many of you deserve this ridicule and need to be offended to wake up.

This is how I will be beginning my blogging. Let’s get started then,. Shall we???

What is it that is making me so furious to the point of outrage that I am choosing to write about at length? It is the double standard and the utter ignorance and superstition bordering on being delusional, of almost 90% of the world’s population, and 99.9% of Indian population in particular.

The double standards in what context, you might ask? I am particularly interested in the double standards of people when it comes to the moral and ethical matters in life… Just for a moment think about why is there so much suffering in this country, to an extent that is beyond comprehension,. Why 48% of children aged less than 5 years of age in India are so grossly undernourished that they have stunted growth, which rarely is reversible. Why is maternal mortality so high that it is shameful to even think about.. Why? And now tell me what your answer is. I will excuse a small percentage of people who do not have the mental capacity to understand what is it that I am talking about. The rest of you must have an answer, and your answer would go thus… It is because, we Indians have lost our tradition, and everyone is obsessed with accumulating wealth and every politician is corrupt and all politicians are either criminals or are accomplices to the criminals.

Okay, I will grant you this, you are correct in your reasoning that the majority of the politicians in this country do not have any morality and they are corrupt beyond comprehension. Now think about a situation where you come across a doctor who refuses to give you a false certificate stating that you were suffering from a disease for two weeks and was under his/her care for the said period, so that you can avail a period of leave with pay or stay in the job you are in. what will you do now?

I know what everyone in India does in such a situation,. you would initially ask that doctor gain, and then you will become irritated and you will come up with something like this., “hey come-on doctor, I am not asking for money, after all it is just a matter of a few words and a signature, how does it matter, everyone does that?”,. Then you would curse him/her, you will go back and say to your near and dear ones, what an arrogant son of bitch that doctor was.

This is a very simple, highly recurring scenario; do you see what I am trying to get at? Where were your morals and integrity and self respect when you were bargaining with the doctor and where were your morals when you felt betrayed and genuine disgust for this doctor., I know you feel genuinely disgusted at that doctor. There are innumerable scenarios where such emotions and moral issues come into question everyday in our country.

Just another example, as you are very well aware, almost all the politicians in this country are corrupt right? While deciding that these people are corrupt you had a moral standard right? so when you take money from these same corrupt politicians to vote for them, or when you go to these same corrupt politicians to get a transfer by bribing him, or when you bribe these same politicians in lakhs of rupees to get your son a government job, or while voting these idiots into power,. where were your fucking moral standards??

That is what infuriates me, how on earth can you not be ashamed of your behaviors and how can you say that the root of all evil in this country are these corrupt politicians with a straight face?

The road to a better tomorrow is in your hands, every one of you must start being honest and you must have integrity, the conviction to stand up against corrupt people and the conviction to not to be corrupt yourself or let other’s corrupt you.

Unless you cannot muster the courage to be honest, you cannot ask anyone else to be honest… how can you? And on what moral grounds?

This is the problem with this nation, and I am here to stand up against all that is corrupt and disgusting, I will make that change happen… If you have any shame, I call upon you to take this pledge.
