Worst Things About India

I'm an Indian, so no one knows India better than me.

There are things which I hate about my country. So here's a list of things I hate about my country.

The Top Ten

1 Unhygienic and Dirty Environment

I think people like living in unhealthy environment, they will rather buy expensive phones, bikes than constructing a toilet in their home, they poop and take bath in the same river... They don't throw their garbage in garbage dumps but rather just throw it on streets
... - cybercyborg

Yes at most of the places u can see garbage dumped I just hate this


2 Lack of Respect for Women

Not only in India my friend every where in the world its still happening.

In India boys pass comments towards girls n there is a lack of respect for them

A girl can't walk freely in the streets.Its definate she would get bad stares from sone of boys and people who view women as inferior.

There's even an Indian judge that beliebes that rape victims should marry their attackers. - DieGedankenSindFrei

3 Poverty

You are right India is the poorest

The world bank report says that only 11% of all Indians fall under the poverty line but the truth is something else.. 50% of people in India do not have a roof upon their head (homeless)
53% Indian houses do not have toilets.. People poop on fields and railway tracks...
At every traffic signal you'll find childrens begging...
Moreover the govt is also not doing much to overcome this problem - cybercyborg

4 Sexual Assault

Bad quete

That is where this country is best at...

5 Racism

Yes! One thing I hate in India is the racism.. Government also supports the caste system! Everyone need to put their caste in their names. This is the worst thing in India.. Lower caste peoples are treated like an animal or even worse than that. - paasadani

Ya indians are. Racism mingle in to their blood and minds they never put forward to change some may adopt to change but never encouraged to such things by parents and relatives they should teach equality to their children starting from childhood

Yes people in India are very racist... When a white foreigner comes to India people look at them as if they're aliens,...
Plus students from north east India, when come to cities like delhi for higher education, they are beaten to death... Which is ridiculous...
They blame Australians for killing Indian students but do the same in their country - cybercyborg


6 Superstitious Mindset

People offer milk, sweets, fruits, money, gold, silver in temples but never think that those things can be given to the poor people sitting outside the temples...
They take sacred bath in rivers.. Though the rivers are highly contaminated, human corpses floating, dead remains of animals and many more things...
They sometimes sacrifice animals like goats, chicken to God which according to me is absolutely ridiculous...
They do many more ridiculous things in the name if superstition - cybercyborg

Very right.

If u want to see w b at is actually superstitious in India watch movie like n pk

7 Corruption

This is a very big problem...
When the govt is corrupt, no hope remains for the people... Corruption is done on very big scale here... And moreover they are stealing money from those who have very less to lose which is a matter of shame - cybercyborg

8 Stupid Superstition

Also they believe that it is bad luck if black cat crosses your way!

They hang lemon and chili in front of house for wealth. Are they okay?

9 Languagism

Well I don't think it's bad to have different languages. India is a diverse country with many cultures you can't just tell anyone to stop talking in their mother tongue. I don't think it should be a problem if people speak in more than one language. If they can communicate well with a foreigner I don't think the should be a problem. If someone has a problem they have to live with that

Most Indians are taught at least 2 languages, depending where you live. Many of them are taught English but many Indians find English as a useless language. But a lot of Indians that find English as a useful language, want their kids to be only taught English rather than Hindi or their native language so it can make them more, "educated" There is no language that will make you more or less educated.

Indians speak a lot of languages, I live in a state where people speak a different language and its like living in a different country, similarly each state has its own language, which is too annoying... - cybercyborg

10 Climate

Well this is not under people's control, but I just hate Indian climate, its too hot and enervating...
Many homeless people die in summers... - cybercyborg

The Contenders

11 Population

They say in India, movies and sex are the top two entertainments. Most are so poor and or illiterate that "safe sex" is often not an option. And abortion is way too expensive or dangerous. All this and several other factors contribute to India's population.

12 Egoism

True to 100

No one in the world has a bigger ego than the elite Brahmin caste members. These people claim that they are derived from the God's head (highest position in the body) and therefore claim to have been conferred with supreme intelligence and thus a pre-eminent position in the society and government even though they are less than 1% of India's population. Sad part is some majority non-brahmins believe this to be true. Since India's Independence from the British (who favored Brahmins above all other caste members - due to the Brahmins' "extreme" flexible nature), most of the Indian Prime Ministers were Brahmins or persons deliberately selected by Brahmins including the present one. In essence, India's History and culture is the Brahmins' version that is predominant and anything else is conveniently shaded from the people.

I m living in nagpur Maharashtra the people here are very proudy and have lot of ego no one help any other person their way of taking is worst

14 Traffic
15 Unemployment

Unemployment is rampant and there are no real figures available from any reliable source.

16 ICC

Indian Make/Convert ICC = Indian Cheating Council.

17 Ethnic Diversity

People in India do not call themselves Indian but they call themselves as Punjabi, marvari, bihari, etc
India is divided into lots of castes...
Plus the religious diversity is the main cause of riots in India..
According to me Hindus and Muslims should not live in 1 country, Indian Muslims are very extremists, non secular, they do not consider them as Indians but as Muslims - cybercyborg

18 Shortage of Electricity

Frequent powercuts is not rare in India, especially in summer they cut power for hours... This is because they do not have underground electric wire which remain unaffected in rain, summer, etc - cybercyborg

There is a lot of electricity in India

19 Illiterate People

Yes there are many people who are uneducated but the problem is that 60% of the educated Indians leave India to move to countries like the States and make their country work. No offense but that's a fact

Like most democracies intellectual illiteracy is carefully propagated.

I was a recruiter 20 years ago..at that time and before, this was a fact. 1980s - 2000. The most brilliant minds of India got on a plane and came to the U.S. or Canada or somewhere/anywhere else. My belief was that India needed these minds...if they had stayed in India, my belief was New Delhi would be Silicon Valley...however, with age comes a new way of thinking..i don't believe India could have fixed the corruption, the population explosion, the infrastructure, the hygiene and a multitude of other 3rd world problems so it probably would not have ever become Silicon Valley. Fast forward to today, I have fears about the future of India. The population is not going to lessen, the government will not become less corrupt. The extreme poor are not even looked at by the middle class. They are not seen or heard. Life is cheap if you are a poor, uneducated Indian living in India...

Brute they may be but they are India's last hope of humaneness.
