What are the biggest mistakes that Indians make?
Aaditya Bhardwaj, Keen Observer of Indian Foreign Policy
I am Going to discuss India's Recent Blunder which we are going to commit and it must be stopped otherwise forget the 5 Trillion dollars Economy.
A High-speed Bullet Train Project Between Maharashtra and Gujarat is expected to be completed by December 2023 . Total Cost of the Project is 1.1 lakh crore Rupees Out of which 81 % i.e 88087 crore was given by Japan as an Easy loan on interest of 0.1% for 50 Years (just to Strengthen the ties between two nations). Rest was to be Assured by Respective state Governments and The centre Government has to pay around 10,000 Crore. We got an option from China to get it at 18% cheaper rates, but fatality rate are high in Chinese Trains compared to Japan's and Also due Stragic Alliance and Geopolitical scenario Japan is more favorable option.
Since 150 Km of line goes through Maharashtra 1,380 hectares of land was to be acquired out which 5,48 hectares has been acquired, But Now the scenario of Maharashtra has changed. The New State Government is giving negative indication regarding this project. They are Going to Review this Project. This may lead to Delay in project. It hurts and dents the interest of investors. How Will an investor invest in country who's policy change with change in Government. Some People Generally ask this question why we are not developing like China, one reason is our internal fights, we are Not thinking of National Interests.
We are destroying our long term vision and without Big investments we can't compete with China. We can't be a 5 Trillion dollar Economy if we are destroying our National Interests due to our Regional Politics.

I’m answering this question from the perspective of an Indian teenager and the answer is on the basis of my observations/experiences.
The biggest failure of India is the nation’s failure to foster an environment of passion and excellence when it comes to education and life goals.
Indian teenagers lack the passion and the desire to master the subjects of their choice. They are instead driven by the passion to ace standardised competitive exams and compete in a perpetual rat race which becomes a recurring theme for the rest of their lives. Indian teenagers need to understand that life is way larger and grander than competitive exams which seem to be the life goals for teenagers these days.
Another aspect of the above mentioned failure of India is the people who are idolised by youngsters. Year in and year out, the toppers of competitive exams (JEE, MBA,UPSC, CLAT etc) are the people who attain fame and glory which is rather obnoxious since they haven't really achieved anything substantial other than getting an opportunity to study in an institute. I haven't come across this form of glorification in any other part of the world. The real contributors - scientists, inventors, social workers etc, people who actually contribute something positive to the society are rarely acknowledged for their contributions. This creates a culture that doesn't promote passion and drive for excellence and will thus hinder our nation from achieving true greatness in the future.

We Indians judge a lot. Without even having slightest of idea about the other part of the story we already come out with our own judgements and opinoins and then try to impose them. We not even try to know the other part of the story.
I personally feel that we Indians never take a firm stand for anything and that is why people who come ahead for the progress of our country eventually fail and that is precisely because they don't receive the support needed.
3.Trying to please others
We Indians spend our whole lives trying to please others and in doing what is liked by all. We fail to understand that we're not on this planet that we're not on this planet to please others or to live behind anyone's shadow. Allowing your interests to revolve around the majority only hinders individuality. Attempting to blend with the crowd should not be a reason of action. It's those who stand out from the others that change the world.

I have found 2 mistakes(may be) and I'm not a feminist please understand that.
#1.Naming a girl slut so easily:
Seriously you know nothing about that girl.i have seen people doing it.
Guy1 : you know she's a slut.
Guy2: omg. I thought she's a good
girl. How do you know that man.
G1: some x told me that she was a big slut.
G2 to g3: she is a slut man you know that.
G3: omg how do you know that.
G2 : g1 told me this..
G3 to g4 and so on this never stops.
And finally one fine morning there comes a news that mr. X was caught in a brothel house arrested by police for forcing women to indulge in these activities and previously he tried to pursuade the girl we are talking about but failed.
If you don't know please don't comment next time the same may happen to your family members also.
# 1. 这么轻易就说一个女孩是荡妇：
#2.support women workforce
Not allowing thier wives to work after marriage.although there are problems like maintaining kids and family,but now a days it has changed a lot-lifestyle of people has experienced a sea change.Understand, she has that fre m to work. You are equally responsible as is your wife as far your family is concerned.
" raising women’s workforce participation to the same level as men’s could raise per capita GDP in the US by five per cent, and Egypt by 34 per cent. "
India is lagging seriously in this. So go ahead encourage your women.
Its good for your family and its good for india also.

7.不要利用11 / 26巴基斯坦的错误，收回部分查谟和克什米尔，让俾路支独立。
Digvijay Singh, Network Consultant at Cisco
The biggest mistakes made by few Indians are that they care a lot about what the society thinks about them.
Before they do something, they will assume what the society, their relatives say about them and then they make any decision.
For example, a friend of my mine lives alone and wants to get some extra money. So he decides to work at McDonalds. I don't see how that can be degrading. His dad told him and I quote "What will I tell your relatives that you're working at McDonalds? What face will I show them?"
I was so disappointed by this. I mean, why can't one just do what they like without caring what others will talk about them? Do those people wake up every morning to please the society? Why can't people just mind their own business and live in peace and live others in peace?

Bringing good marks in school
This is the biggest mistake an Indian student can do. Once you bring good grades everybody expects a lot from you. The society loves watching people fall. If you are an Indian student and you bring good marks, people will start telling you what you should further in life.
For example if you bring good grades in 10th Board exam people will start forcing you to listen to them about which stream you should take. Nobody will ask you what you really want to do. When you become a graduate, the society will tell you to do a MBA, even if your passion lies in some other field. They will come to your doorstep and discourage you to take risks and settle for a small thing in life.
Expectation is the biggest problem. Your parents now expect that you should also be like your neighbors son/ daughter and go to US to do MS ( just one example) because you brought better marks than that person but today he/she is going to the US and you are not.
It becomes very difficult to follow your passion, to do what you really want to do. Taking risks in life and failing just becomes impossible. You are forced to be a person that you are not. Life becomes miserable and you become lonely. There will be times when you will feel that no one understands who you are and what is going on in your mind. This may also lead to depression.
In India, bringing full marks may sound good in the beginning, but later on in life you may regret it and the consequences may be bad as it raises people’s expectations.

Log Kya Kahenge:
This is the biggest mistake made by most of the Indians. They care a lot about what people think.
The biggest mistake India has ever made is not banning political groups motivated and provoked by religious dogma. Groups like RSS , Muslim league , Bajrang dal , AIMIM , Bhim Army etc. These groups fight over party issues, spread hatred and distract our focus from the main prblems like poverty, malnutrition, unemployment. Overall , they are a huge burden in our nation and are responsible for the mess that our country is in .
