  1. How did an uneducated Indian (Modi) who made tea for living became the Prime Minister of India? Mangala Samaraweera and Basil Rajapaksa could not even get a job as an accounting assistant without proper education in finance or financial experience but they can become finance ministers of Sri Lanka. South Asia was systematically divided, and used uninformed Indians to assassinate Gandhi by the Western powers. After Gandhi’s death, the Western powers tricked the Indians leaders and pushed India to follow the western guidelines(tricks). The best South Asian brains such as Google CEO Sundar Pichai and US Vice President Kamala Harris are developing the West. The reality is, many of you do not understand who makes the leadership decisions in South Asia. You think you got independence but the West is ruling you from a distance.
