  1. The current leaders cannot make it happen. South Asia needs a revolution as China did in the 1940s

    The West ripped off South Asia and left with nothing. In fact, the West did more than ripping off the region before giving independence. The West divided South Asia as well as embedded democracy and religious beliefs to indulge laziness, so the South Asia’s biggest human resources will not be capitalised. I have visited Jaffna, Sri Lanka and seen the reality. More than 50% of the people do nothing but living on foreign money. The government workers work only 2 – 4 hours a day. But those people never fail to go to temples or churches, because siting in temples and churches easier than doing a job to earn their living. They simply indulging their laziness in the name of democracy and religious freedom.

    Jawaharlal Nehru and Muhammad Ali Jinnah were fighting for their own positions not for South Asians. Otherwise, they would have easily identified the divisions, religious ideologies, caste systems, and gender issues. From Nehru to the Rajapaksas leaderships all about having a position. The West made China as a world factory but China didn’t change its system. In contrast, South Asian leaders would do anything for the West as long as they have a position. The Rajapaksas and their advisors are no different than Indian political leaders. They will continue to pampering the people’s laziness to keep their votes and power.

    Truly, a tragedy to humanity.

    An appropriate finale, perhaps to calamitous campaigns on freedom and independence that did no justice to the people who had hoped that their leaders could turn things around. After decades of constant battles and enormous sacrifices, Indians got independence from the West to develop themselves. Seven decades have passed, what they have is a disaster. Today, they cannot wait to get out of their country to save their lives. Truly, this is a tragedy for South Asia and humanity as a whole. Surely, the British would not have given independence to South Asia; if Indians had a plan to unite South Asia to utilise the largest human resources as China does to build its wealth and power because that would have been the greatest threat to the Western powers in the 20th century. The British gave independence to South Asia after making sure that divisions are in place. The divisions were systematically created in every part of South Asia, including Sri Lanka, but the obvious one was dividing India and creating Pakistan.

    The Western countries ripped off South Asia and fooled South Asians for centuries. However, the South Asian leaders failed to think for themselves to re-unite South Asia which was divided by the West. Britain’s brainchild is Pakistan, I would not surprise if the British deliberately twist the truth and pushed the Hindu fundamentalists to kill Gandhi for creating Pakistan. After Gandhi’s death, South Asian leaders have been pleasing the West to safeguard their political positions to build their own wealth at the expense of billions of South Asians. South Asia has more population than China, it had an opportunity to become unbelievably wealthy and powerful to make this world a better place, especially to help the First People of North America and Australasia to have their freedom. However, South Asia has failed utterly. In fact, entire South Asia did nothing when the Australian Government deleted my citizenship and brought me to the street for making awareness of the Australian First people’s hardships. This shows the Australian leaders’ extraordinary power and failed South Asia.
