Perhaps the title of the poem explains its all; ...
Self-pride and nationalism,
Marred by bureaucracy and corruption,
Religious idiosyncrasies and bigoted fanaticism,
Still a land of growth, full of optimism.
A hot mix of culture and prejudices,
Bundles of contradictions within,
But a place of opportunities,
And self-realization forthcoming.
Carrying a indomitable past,
Feeding more than a billion mouths,
Up surging on a development path,
Huge work force and working hard,
Economic prosperity rising fast,
Makes me wonder,
Be it economic reforms or WTO,
Making its presence felt all through,
Preparing itself for a worldly ride,
