What are some bitter truths about the Indian society?
Abhishek Chaudhary, Assistant Section Officer at Central Secretariat Service (2016-present)
Pictures speaks better than words. Let me clarify it better with that.
Most of the charity is just to brag the media attention. According to BIBLE, your left hand should not come to know what you donated with your right.
People are more inclined towards the virtual world that they forget nothing can beat the real world. Enjoy the moment, rather than uploading it.

Education now a days is just a means to bag money. Many teachers do not bother whether the student is grasping anything or not.
Tell them truth and you loose them. Comfort them with a lie. and they are with you forever.
A house with nature as surrounding is always better than a house with no trees but surrounded with storeyed building.
The modern world hardly gives you time for happiness. Feel it, else you wont get it easily.
Let the child follow his dreams. Compulsion can never beat the interest.

Ankit Mishra, loves Indian culture and people.
There are inconsiderate human beings that occupy this planet in every village, town, city and country. Even so, I wouldn’t be straying far from the truth when I say that we Indians occupy a special place in the pantheon of insensitivity. We are a nation of uncaring, indifferent boors.
The Inconsiderate Indian
Our indifference manifests in countless exotic ways. It could take the form of spit impelled out of a window of a moving bus or car. It showcases itself in how we drive on the other side of the road, passing those who wait patiently for the light to turn green. Our selfishness blossoms when presented with a long line in front of a small counter with a harassed clerk, and plots clever ways to cut through and get around the indignity of waiting. Mindless road/traffic planners, rude hospital staff, robotically insensitive school principals, gossiping colleagues, uncaring airport staff.. The list goes on. So, it should come as no surprise when our leaders display the same inconsideration that we have so carefully cultivated amongst ourselves. Yet, it surprises us when we hear that our ministers have been pilfering from us, promoting their sons and daughters and circumventing the laws of the land to suit their purposes.
Why are we a nation of dimwitted fools?
Never mind Viswanathan Anand. Never mind that Silicon Valley genius engineer, who invented that clever thing that lets us search the internet. Never mind Homi Bhabha. Never mind J.C. Bose and C. V. Raman. Never mind that ours is the land of Buddha and the Vedas. Never mind the nostalgia from having invented zero. Make no mistake about it. We are a nation of fools.
Seriously, why are we a nation of fools?
Even a tiny North African country with 10 million people and nothing more than sandy deserts, has found a way to build roads, run hospitals, operate shiny airports and promote civility. I think, the truth is that we, at some fundamental level, seem to revel in our foolishness. We call it jugaad. We call it ‘street smarts’. Our brains work overtime to figure out detours. We are a nation of arrogant, self-centered people which believes that its brand of perverted intelligence is somehow superior because it helps beat the odds. We are a society of fools that celebrates the most ‘jugaadi’ fools. I, for one, take no pride in our jugaad. To me, jugaad is a symptom of how low we have fallen.
The smart thing is to take the straight roads and drive faster. Somewhere along the line, we have forgotten this inconvenient truth. How about more sense and less jugaad?

Oh Girl! Please don't come in our world
Either we'll kill you in the womb
Or will definitely kill you after your born
Forget dreams, goal and aspirations
You are still live, is your biggest achievement
Don't give us stress by making wish
Understand, we aren't able to accomplish
You are a fool if
keeping any aspiration from life
Your only aim should be
Making someone's a wife
“Keep away from opposite sex
They are cruel monster guys”
We'll say this until
you become their better half

What is right for Indian society? Answer is everything whatever they ‘think’ is right and not which is ‘actually’ right.
1.Our society thinks that having a male child is right and compulsory. Like anyone having many girl child is also not ready to surrender until he have at least a boy.
2.It thinks that only arrange marriage is right.
3.It thinks that a boy and a girl maintaining distance is right. They couldn't be close friends according to society.
4.It thinks that a widow has no relevance.
5.It thinks that astrologers are always right. Even after some major cases peoples do not try to understand that it's only a business for them to have some money.
6.It thinks that only intra-caste marriage is right.
7.It thinks that everything should happen according to elder’s wishes and youngsters need to live according to traditional rituals.
So, Indian Society is still in a developing stage, so is the India. Sorry to say, but it's the only truth.
Neelima Paravastu, no matter where I live, always an Indian
In my opinion the biggest bitter truth is relationship of wife n husband. I am saying this based on from my 25 years experience as daughter, friend, sister and wife. I've started noticing or observing couple since I was like around 15 years. No matter whether it's arranged marriage, love marriage, love at first sight, married after long dating relationship, a husband always get to dominate wife. It's no matter how close they are, at times wife just stays quite when husband gets angry or tells her what to do or not to do. It's no matter how long their marital relationship is, a husband always shows her place in the home. It's no matter how much she contributes to the house hold, he always makes her feel like she is doing nothing great, just a fulfilling simple wife's duty or responsibility. But they expect so much respect for what they do, even though they are also just doing their duty as a husband or father.
I've read scriptures says otherwise, heard women should be treated like goddess or at least equal.
I hope youth are changing, giving enough respect to their wives and making feel great for what they contributing to their household. Hope they will praise them as great mother n wife, value their opinions n advises and them as equals even though they don't go out earn money.
Nikhil Sukumar, lives in India.
No focus on true goals for themselves.
Patriotism used for racism.
No goals or career goals.
If they had goals then no difference in opinions can hurt us.
Focus on others all the time.
No tolerance on other cultures.
No appreciation on languages.
Use of bad words is more important than goals.
Garbage disposal on other people's houses or streets.
Fighting to death for difference in opinions.
Not learning to move onto goals.
No self development or self realization.
No one knows about themselves as much they know about others.
No self respect.

The sky scrapers of Mumbai
The world class metro of Delhi
The beautiful parks of Bangalore
The electronic city of Hyderabad
The beautiful houses of Jaipur
The luxurious hotels of Goa
And the massive malls of Pune and Gurgaon.
All are courtesy the endless hours of manual work by the huge labour force of India.
But sadly, once built, it’s uncomforting to see the same people at these places who made them from scratch.
The sad truth about India.
Bitter truths, well as the Hindus have a custom of eating neen with jaggery on the Hindu new year, the society emulates that to the core, here as the question concerns itself with the neem(bitter) part,here I go

India a place where contradiction coexist.
1.People caste their vote according to their caste.
2.Insist there daughter/son to marry within their caste.
3.Judge people according to their caste/religion.
There is no caste in blood.
You can't go out alone, especially with any strangers but you are expected to marry and live with one once you are certified as 'ready for marriage' by your family.
