India’s Greatest Ironies That Will Make You Think

India's Greatest Ironies

India is one of the biggest democratic nations in the world and has the most varied culture too. A country in which the population is increasing every second but people do not talk about sex. Where women are molested every day and worshiped as goddess Durga too. Just be witty brings you some India’s Greatest Ironies.

India is a land full of contradictions and ironies. While most of these contradictions are because of social and economic issues, few of them arise from our attitude as well. While all of us want these problems to disappear,  but the problem is our “chalta hai” attitude and let things be as they are, waiting for others to clean up our mess. Ironical isn’t it?

However, we knowingly do all the Ironies and contradiction and still, we do ignore them.
