One of my observation, over the years in India is most of us have unrealistic expectations from society/country. This is main reason of our frustrations.
we blame our seniors/juniors etc. why they have not done this or that for society. Same time we never ask this question from our self, why we are not contributing to society or what we have contributed to society or how can we contribute to society.
Most of our students complain that they their teachers are not highly qualified or standard of teaching is low. When you ask from same students whether they wants to become teacher after completing their degree. Their answer is no. How can we expect high standards of science/teaching if we are not ready to contribute. We wants that we should do highly paid jobs and others should do low paid jobs like scientists/teachers.
I wish to initiate a discussion on “Open source from India”http://network.nature.com/forums/natureindia/2029” but response was too poor. We have initiated Indipidia in order to provide resources related to India. Idea is to provide information related to science particularly drug discovery, we are not getting any contributors from Indian students/scientists so far. If we all contribute to this side than it is possible we may easily get opportunities in India. If our own people are not ready to contribute to society than why we expect open source should be created from India.
Our frustration will continue till we expect from other without any expectations from self. This is our country, if we wish wish that it should be a perfect country than each of us should ask question from self “What we have contribute to our county today”.
Nobody is going to help us only we can help us by contributing to society. Do not bother what other are doing for country. Think how we can contribute to society in order to make it better. Blame game will not lead to us any where.
Their is need of realistic thinking rather than self-centered thinking.
