at a loss

How much can you defend a city you love for obvious reasons (to yourself), when deep in your heart you know that it shames you much more often than (ever) warming your soul.

I understand there are many reasons (education-lack of it-, poverty, over population) why a lot of the things that happen in India happen. But sometimes I wonder if it is something more inherent, and we (I) am just loathe to think/accept it- that some many of my ‘countrymen’ might actually be, inexplicably, diametrically opposite to my perception of life and humanity.

Am I deluded, in my own world? Or are they?

We're all deluded, you no more than anyone else. I would need to try living in India or (worse) Pakistan, if I wanted to comprehend a little of their world. But I don't fancy dysentery, so I'll watch them play cricket on TV instead.

Timeless question... but you seemed to have answered it: you're both in your own worlds and hence cannot see eye to eye.
Love the style of your blog by the way -- how you cross things out -- it's very fresh looking.
