No, History NOT be damned .. take England, 200 years or so ago, they were hanging people for petty crimes, and for sorcery .. and they are not dwelling on the past .. glorious or not .. and not gloating over it .. or that they were the industrial capital of the world (or so they used to say .. )sanjivvohra wrote: Looks that way Everyone seems to be having grief with Indians, history be damned!
Why not everybody move on and look at the current, instead of saying "we have a thousand year old civilisation, but, yes, and we also have a few million who like to s**t on railways lines .. so how ?? Covering your eyes will not clear the mess in front of you .. And yah, a lot of new generation goes on to say "well, the media portrays the nasty sides of India and forgets the good we have done, like F1 ... Brand new airports .. and .. so ??
Does it mean the ugly sides of the country disappeared ? No .. they don't disappear .. ah, even when some people went for the F1, they were more than shocked that the workers doing the re-surfacing didn't even wear shoes in the hot sun, and melting tar, they were 'working hard' .. how does that equate to 1000 year culture when you leave more than half the population behind in your quest for progress ??
It is the employer's responsibility to repatriate .. but more than one Indian Maid agent knows that the employers dump the maid at the agency - and hence, possibly, the higher agency fees too ..BTW, the aspect of cost of repatriation of maids to home country in case of a problem; I thought it was the responsibility of the employer to foot the bill and not the agency's? Did I get it wrong?
