It is normal for Indians to speak the language of fear. Teenagers and young adults who are beginning to understand the world read such headlines written by "mature adults" and learn to fear. And I have been reading such headlines for decades, from the time I was a young adolescent. Just read the words there. "Panic" "worrisome". You never ever read this from the press of China, or Pakistan or the US. I will eat my words if anyone can point me to consistent use of the language of fear and retreat by an nation other the India
Indians really make up a country where being fearful is considered necessary, even sensible and normal. I am not surprised that Pakis considered Indians cowards. Even if we are not, we speak the language of cowardice. Indianness is to speak with fear. Not with confidence. The ideals of calm courage in the face of adversity is non existent in modern India. Its existence in the past is of little consequence.
Sooner or later, some Chinaman with Mao's chuzptah will lead China. He will read and understand the indian psyche of fear and do something to scare the crap out of Indians, making them fear and respect China for another 50 to 75 years. The people who are proud to be young Indians today had better watch out. You parents' generation use the language of fear. They are handing the "Be shit scared" baton for you carry forward. You guys wil have to decide how to take this Indian heritage forward. I wish you luck.
