What is India? Is it:

  • Overwhelmingly religious?

  • Deeply anti-scientific?

  • Exclusively hierarchical?

  • Fundamentally un-sceptical?

  • Rational or traditional?

  • A Developing nation or an IT Super Power

  • Unity in Diversity?

Can one:

  • Measure India with western yardsticks?

  • Comprehend the “Indian Standard time”?

  • Expect a “No, Sorry, I can not” from an Indian?

  • Recognize a typical Indian?

  • Trace the colonial footprints on the Indian mind-set?
