The point is that a country and the poor farmers and others nurtured us, and with our privileges we need to serve now. If the country is corrupt, we need to work at that. If its mired in paperwork we need to work at that. Not pack up bags and leave !
Gayathri Nair I wholly agree with the sentiment. We need our quality citizens to serve on the ground.
I was taught in school that after science's advent, all these old cultures, where we used to go by "bullock cart" or used to rear cattle, are painted as inferior things to do (given we have "superior" ways of doing the same through industrialization). So, how can an educated person EVER look at a person from a village with respect? At best there could be "pity". But not respect.
Then the BIGGEST LIE OF ALL: uneducated people breed like rabbits and that population is a growing problem that can be controlled through education. It turns out even rabbits don't breed like rabbits.
