Indians are good starters, but bad finishers. There are scores of examples. 1857 war was a good example.The war that rattled the Englishmen vanished as quickly as it started within a span of one and half year. Entire nation did not back the revolt. Many local rulers like Nizam, Gwalior Mahraja,Sikh Maharajas, Mysore Maharaja,Gaikwad Maharaja. Maharja of Indore and many more polished boots of the East India Company to stay in power and retain their small kingdoms.Marathas during Peshwas times almost ruled entire India but failed to establish Pad padshahi. Even after Panipat War III they did not loose power. They were very powerful, But internal bickerings led to it's down fall after three Anglo Maratha wars. They started well and finished poorly. Anna Haazre is the latest example. His efforts are almost invain and are now in streets trying to take part in elections expecting people to throw out the corrupt regime through ballot. Can it happen in a society where corruption has taken roots deep into society? The rulers have become corrupt as society has become corrupt.Corrupt people elect corrupt men.Criminals elect criminals. They elects corrupt men with shady records based on caste, power of money, religion and language. The person who comes to power on the promise of honesty soon perpetuates dynastic rule as it happened in UP recently. It is now Mulayam singh Yadavs dynastic rule.Mulayams daughter in law is also now in lime light in politics. How shameful!How can any one expect to throw out corrupt UPA?In next elections people vote on Gandhi's name without realizing that the present Gandhis are no way related to real half naked Gandhi and not comparable to him even in smallest fraction.They are not even like a dust particle of MK Gandhi's slippers.Indians lack marshal spirit and are used to suffer eternally hoping some one would save them.Yeras of Buddhism has spped them of marshal spirit.The spirit of revoultionaries like Bhagat singh,Ras bihari Bose, Madan lal Dhingra, Uddham singh, Chadrasekhar Azad and Subhas Chandra Bose has disappeared from a nation of corrupt inhabitants.
