This was a quote which is told by a consultant who gone back from Sri Lanka. This is a completely narrow minded saying about a country. I do not have words to explain my feeling about this quote. But I will write a similar situation which was happen in india.
In many decades ago a British expert had been criticised that "The sewer water of London is bacteriologically superior to the milk of Bombay" **. What was the reaction of them to this pig headed quote. Dr. Verghese Kurien took this as a challenge and drew the country to be one of front-ranker in milk production.
The above quote about our nation is must taken serious. We want to establish proper vision & mission on our nation. We must start our individual role in developing this country. Even a little man has a great responsibility. These statements must be taken as challenges.
