A definition on urbandictionary.com where the majority of definitions follow the simple format of "smelly, curry-munchers, outsourced, backward" (tsk tsk)
India is a federal republic which officially gained independence in 1947. No, the British didn't leave because India was worthless(a fact: 80% of the income of the Empire came from India), they left because Indians used mainly non-violent means to assert their claims to freedom.
The largest liberal democracy in the world (population-wise)
with the 3rd largest military force in the world. They've had territorial disputes with Pakistan throughout the year and noooo, they didn't meet their Vietnam w/Pakistan as the 1971 war showed (15 days for the Indian military to decisively defeat Pakistan)
A prime destination for the outsourcing of high-tech, skilled jobs. Wanna know why companies outsource? Mainly since India has a massive labor pool of skilled and educated professionals. Ya think if those gosh-darned Amerikanets had an inkling of intellectual thought, that their jobs would stay there rather than be shipped off?
Also the 3rd largest economy in the world and wait, there's more; the 2nd fastest, growing economy in the world emphasising exports of financial and technological services. Kudos to them I say.
A country with a diverse population, mainly identifying themselves as Hindu. By the way, its only certain Hindu sects that drink cow urine for medicinal purposes, not the entire population! The same stereotype can be applied to Americans: they're bible-thumping cowboys who lynch negroes for sport because a miniscule percentage of them wear white hoods.
Sure, they've got their problems of poverty and health but these have improved greatly. Modern-day India is quite a young country (compared to other democracies) and they've managed to accomplish quite a bit even after decades of oppression.
The nineteenth-century British historian, Grant Duff, claimed that "Many of the advances in the sciences that we consider today to have been made in Europe were in fact made in India centuries ago."
