I'm not referring to the numbering system or the quantity of languages or
the sciences or anything in particular, except one. I readily admit
India has one of the richest cultures, philosophies, and religions in the
world. The one thing I was referring to was the ability of the common
person to read.
Having the world reknown liturature, and fantastic scientists, and great
leaders is great. Having deep philosophies and the foundation of
religion is great. But what is the use of having these things if an
ordinary can't read and study about them?
The elite will always enable themselve the read, study, and learn math -
how about common people. Which is better having one-hundred scientists
or having one-thousand? I am much more imperialist than most people and
still realize the value of public literacy and the common person being
read and think.
