Devyani Khobragade: Indian elites incredulous entitlement
Good luck Dr. Khobragade. Why do you have to do this in America? India doesn't have enough leverage over America and their strategy of managing this 'crisis' is simple. They are lending a listening ear to your howls of injustice but it is one which Americans will never understand. You should have packed up and gone home in September when the Yankees hinted at what was coming. But like I have come to know you guys, you are just naturally unable to take the hint. As always the fault is the always others and never them.
The bigger picture is more serious. The culture of entitlement iron cladded in the caste system subverts meaningful democracy in India. It is a biggest and real life experiment to show why democracy fails there and many places else. You can only boast the process but as always the outcomes discredits democracy. This is needless brand damage but the Americans are always so wide eyed and persistent here. And to India discredit she doesn't have a sense of shame which would have spurred them to self correct and do better. Such a gifted people but even more self defeating. So you know why the Chinese will beat you hands down. I have never understood Goh Chok Tong silly Indian fever. The elites were gracious to him but to the rest of us, they are often insufferable.
Of course there are startling exceptions among their elites but you need a lucky hand to meet them. Just ask those who have to attend to them in our clubs.
