  1. This country had the first Female Prime Minister in the world. However, those days are gone. South Asia has gone backward in leadership. It is in a chaos and out of control.

    COVID 19 is the only hope to protect the people from corruption and foolishness and save the world from environmental disasters. Let’s hope a revolution will come through this disaster.

    Look at Tokyo Olympic medal tally, two billion South Asians could not get a gold medal.

    Two billion South Asians have no veto power in the UN Security Council to influence important decisions in the world.

    Two billion South Asians can not have one university rang within 100 in the world.

    When the Australian Government deleted my citizenship for making awareness of the First People’s struggles, two billion South Asians didn’t say a word.

    But first region in the world when it come to corruption and ripping off their own people. Your existence is only damaging the world environment. I really hope that COVID 19 deals with you to protect the region.

    Why do I believe South Asia is done…

    Even Gandhi could not do it. The West divided India and systematically turned Indians against Gandhi. Eventually, an Indian killed Gandhi. Late Prime Minister Nehru could not do it, how unqualified and corrupt Modi can do it.

    The British developed Sri Lanka and gave the country in a good shape, but the Sri Lankan leaders destroyed it. This fools can not even sustain the 2nd developed country in Asia, how the utter fools will develop and sustain the country?

    The Fives Eyes countries killed far more people than Adolf Hitler, but manage to cover it up and successfully occupying the moral high ground to rule the world. The South Asian corrupt and foolish leaders can not compete with those minds. Therefore, South Asia is done.

  2. Children in China have more freedom than children in South Asia.

    Except South Asia, every region in the world has won a gold medal at the Olympics in Tokyo, Japan. This is because the basic structure of South Asia is based on multiplying the population. Children cannot choose their own path. They are forced to choose useless mindset in the name of culture through television serials and movies. By looking at the Olympic medal tally, Children in China have more freedom than children in South Asia.
