Closely allied to this malady and equally flimsy in its contents is automatic praise, which often degenerates into sycophancy. A look at the Congress culture reveals more than what is needed to clinch this point.
Rajiv Gandhi is every Congressman’s “my leader.” He is a “paragon of all virtues,” a “dynamic young leader”. There are no other shades in his character except those of pink!
Look at the women and men at parties where everything Indian is “trashy” and everything phoren is “fantastic”. Of course, I agree with those who say that “thinking is a very difficult thing to do.” There are reasons for it.
Right from our younger days, our minds are assaulted with millions of ideas, facts and objects, impressions and experiences. It is not easy to manage them all. In order to bring about some semblance of order in this chaotic world of disorder, we find it convenient to put all these in “groups”, or “label” them so that “thinking” becomes easier.
