Petterssons India quotes by Sonam Kapoor
#2. I'm a socially concerned citizen of India. I have strong views on issues of social and political relevance. But it's very difficult to voice it in an intelligent manner without it sounding contrived. Because people think you're saying or doing all this as a PR exercise, not from your heart. #Quote by Sonam Kapoor
Petterssons India quotes by Ken Follett
#3. Our government doesn't necessarily agree with Wilson's Fourteen Points." Maud nodded. "I suppose we're against point five, about colonial peoples having a say in their own government." "Exactly. What about Rhodesia, and Barbados, and India? We can't be expected to ask the natives' permission before we civilize them. Americans are far too liberal. And we're dead against point two, freedom of the seas in war and peace. #Quote by Ken Follett

Petterssons India quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#6. Materialism has come to the rescue of India in a certain sense by throwing open the doors of life to everyone, by destroying the exclusive privileges of caste, by opening up to discussion the inestimable treasures which were hidden away in the hands of a very few who have even lost the use of them. Half has been stolen and lost; and the other half which remains is in the hands of men who, like dogs in the manger, do not eat themselves and will not allow others to do so. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Petterssons India quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#7. Half-a-dozen or twenty cities of India alone working together cannot bring Swaraj. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Petterssons India quotes by William Dalrymple
#8. but we did not come into India, as they did, at the head of great armies, with the avowed intention of subjugating the country. We crept in as humble barterers, whose existence depended on the bounty and favour of the lieutenants of the kings of Delhi; and the 'generosity' we have shown was but a small acknowledgement of the favours his ancestors had conferred to our race. #Quote by William Dalrymple
Petterssons India quotes by India Drummond
#9. Her body poised with the tension of a wild animal, ready to pounce - or to flee. So beautiful, he thought. As he voiced the words, she faded away, and his world returned to blackness. #Quote by India Drummond
Petterssons India quotes by Gautama Buddha
#10. I consider the positions of kings and rulers as that of dust motes. I observe treasure of gold and gems as so many bricks
and pebbles. I look upon the finest silken robes as tattered rags. I see myriad worlds of the universe as small seeds of
fruit, and the greatest lake in India as a drop of oil on my foot. I perceive the teachings of the world to be the illusion of,
magicians. I discern the highest conception of emancipation as golden brocade in a dream, and view the holy path of the
illuminated one as flowers appearing in one's eyes. I see meditation as a pillar of a mountain, Nirvana as a nightmare of
daytime. I look upon the judgment of right and wrong as the serpentine dance of a dragon, and the rise and fall of beliefs
as but traces left by the four seasons. #Quote by Gautama Buddha
Petterssons India quotes by Isabel Lucas
#11. I've spent months living in Africa and India. So it's not like I was sheltered when I started living in America. But my family laughed when they heard I was going to be in 'Transformers.' I learned a lot and got to experience Michael Bay's mayhem. It was a very colorful experience. #Quote by Isabel Lucas
Petterssons India quotes by Devdutt Pattanaik
#12. I write on sacred stories, symbols and rituals of all cultures - European, American and Chinese - but my audiences, typically, like me to focus on India. #Quote by Devdutt Pattanaik

Petterssons India quotes by Mahatma Gandhi

Petterssons India quotes by Stafford Cripps

Petterssons India quotes by Maajid Nawaz

Petterssons India quotes by Umera Ahmad
#18. A feeling of alienation existed in India about life in Pakistan because most of what was known was negative. So, everyone used to believe things in our country are always bad, and we don't lead a happy life. But this has changed to some extent. After watching our dramas, people now know that we lead our lives similar to the way they live. #Quote by Umera Ahmad
Petterssons India quotes by Amit Ray

Petterssons India quotes by Gloria Steinem
#20. Suddenly, it seems ridiculous that we just came from a city airport named for Columbus, a terrible navigator who insisted to his dying day that he was in India - which is why people here are called Indians. As the Native women in Houston said, It could have been worse - he could have thought he was in Turkey. #Quote by Gloria Steinem
Petterssons India quotes by Gail Carriger
#21. The Rakshasa," said Percy pedantically, "are a different breed altogether from our vampires. Much in the same way that poodles and dachshunds are different breeds of dog. Rakshasas are reviled in India. Their position as tax collectors is an attempts by the crown to integrate them in a more progressive and mundane manner."
Rue said, "Oh, how logical. Because we all know ordaining someone as a tax collector is the surest way to get them accepted by society. #Quote by Gail Carriger
Petterssons India quotes by Alex Von Tunzelmann
#22. In Stalin's famous words, one death is a tragedy; one million deaths is a statistic. In this case, it is not even a particularly good statistic. The very incomprehensibility of what a million horrible and violent deaths might mean, and the impossibility of producing an appropriate response, is perhaps the reason that the events following partition have yielded such a great and moving body of fictional literature and such an inadequate and flimsy factual history. What does it matter to the readers of history today whether there were 200,000 deaths, or 1 million, or 2 million? On that scale, is it possible to feel proportional revulsion, to be five times more upset at 1 million deaths than at 200,000? Few can grasp the awfulness of how it might feel to have their fathers barricaded in their houses and burnt alive, their mothers beaten and thrown off speeding trains, their daughters torn away, raped and branded, their sons held down in full view, screaming and pleading, while a mob armed with rough knives hacked off their hands and feet. All these things happened, and many more like them; not just once, but perhaps a million times. It is not possible to feel sufficient emotion to appreciate this monstrous savagery and suffering. That is the true horror of the events in the Punjab in 1947: one of the vilest episodes in the whole of history, a devastating illustration of the worst excesses to which human beings can succumb. The death toll is just a number. #Quote by Alex Von Tunzelmann
Petterssons India quotes by Narendra Modi
#23. To me technology used wisely is a catalyst to magically transforming the way we live. #Quote by Narendra Modi
Petterssons India quotes by Milan Vaishnav
#24. The failure of India's public institutions to keep pace with the dramatic political, economic and social transformations under way has led to severe gaps in governance. The end result of this disjuncture has been a proliferation of grand corruption - a malaise made up of a diverse array of regulatory, extractive, and political rent-seeking activities. #Quote by Milan Vaishnav
Petterssons India quotes by Rachel Falconer
#25. Nine years ago, my sister handed me a paperback she had picked up in an airport shop on her way to India. It was a gloomy-looking book, with a black an white photo of a steam train approaching through fog on the cover. Cutting across the top of the photo was . . . an author's name I did not know: J.K. Rowling. I began to read the novel and by page three, I was hooked. #Quote by Rachel Falconer
Petterssons India quotes by Srinivas Rao
#26. The only job security, to the extent that it exists, will reside in your ability to be "high concept high touch": to come up with inspired and innovative ideas, gain creative insights, and connect with people on an emotional level through empathy, story or design. To do what computers can't, or that dude in China or India for only so many dollars an hour. To create experiences that people didn't know they wanted or needed but soon refuse to live without. #Quote by Srinivas Rao
Petterssons India quotes by Katherine Boo
#27. Abdul knew this Gandhi as the one who cared for poor people, who liked Muslims as well as Hindus, who took on the British and made India free. #Quote by Katherine Boo
Petterssons India quotes by Bhagat Singh
#28. The aim of life is no more to control the mind, but to develop it harmoniously; not to achieve salvation here after, but to make the best use of it here below; and not to realise truth, beauty and good only in contemplation, but also in the actual experience of daily life; social progress depends not upon the ennoblement of the few but on the enrichment of democracy; universal brotherhood can be achieved only when there is an equality of opportunity - of opportunity in the social, political and individual life. - from Bhagat Singh's prison diary, p. 124 #Quote by Bhagat Singh
Petterssons India quotes by Khushwant Singh
#29. One thing Mr Chaudhuri has overlooked in his remarkable thesis on Hinduism: no religious community in India would take this tarring and feathering of all that they hold sacred save the Hindus. #Quote by Khushwant Singh
Petterssons India quotes by Jonathan Haidt
#30. A more promising hypothesis is that happiness comes from within and cannot be obtained by making the world conform to your desires. This idea was widespread in the ancient world: Buddha in India and the Stoic philosophers in ancient Greece and Rome all counseled people to break their emotional attachments to people and events, which are always unpredictable and uncontrollable, and to cultivate instead an attitude of acceptance. This ancient idea deserves respect, and it is certainly true that changing your mind is usually a more effective response to frustration than is changing the world. #Quote by Jonathan Haidt
Petterssons India quotes by Gurinder Chadha
#31. I went to L.A., and I was on two different studio movies at Fox and Sony, but they were never made in the end. When the second one wasn't happening, I ended up doing an episode of 'Who Do You Think You Are?' for the BBC, and went on a roots trip from England to Kenya, India, and pre-partition India in Pakistan, where my family originally came from. #Quote by Gurinder Chadha
Petterssons India quotes by Karen Armstrong
#32. In the tenth century BC, the priests of India devised the Brahmodya competition, which would become a model of authentic theological discourse. The object was to find a verbal formula to define the Brahman, the ultimate and inexpressible reality beyond human understanding. The idea was to push language as far as it would go, until participants became aware of the ineffable. The challenger, drawing on his immense erudition, began the process by asking an enigmatic question and his opponents had to reply in a way that was apt but equally inscrutable. The winner was the contestant who reduced the others to silence. In that moment of silence, the Brahman was present - not in the ingenious verbal declarations but in the stunning realisation of the impotence of speech. Nearly all religious traditions have devised their own versions of this exercise. It was not a frustrating experience; the finale can, perhaps, be compared to the moment at the end of the symphony, when there is a full and pregnant beat of silence in the concert hall before the applause begins. The aim of good theology is to help the audience to live for a while in that silence. #Quote by Karen Armstrong
Petterssons India quotes by Jack Kornfield
#33. One day Mara, the Buddhist god of ignorance and evil, was traveling through the villages of India with his attendants. He saw a man doing walking meditation whose face was lit up in wonder. The man had just discovered something on the ground in front of him. Mara's attendants asked what that was and Mara replied, "A piece of truth." "Doesn't this bother you when someone finds a piece of the truth, O evil one?" his attendants asked. "No," Mara replied. "Right after this they usually make a belief out of it." #Quote by Jack Kornfield
Petterssons India quotes by Rahul Gandhi
#34. China is referred to as the 'dragon' and India as an 'elephant'. But we are not an elephant, we are a 'beehive'. #Quote by Rahul Gandhi
Petterssons India quotes by Amartya Sen
#35. The curriculum of the school did not neglect India's cultural, analytical and scientific heritage, but was very involved also with the rest of the world. #Quote by Amartya Sen
Petterssons India quotes by Aatish Taseer
#36. ...if we were to associate the genius of a place with one particular thing – the Russians with literature, say, or the Germans with music, the Dutch and Spanish with painting – we would have to say that the true genius of Ancient India was language. #Quote by Aatish Taseer
Petterssons India quotes by Aasif Mandvi
#37. I was born in India - but never really lived there. #Quote by Aasif Mandvi
Petterssons India quotes by Damon Galgut
#38. India I have visited a great many times, though there is a lot about it I will never understand. #Quote by Damon Galgut
Petterssons India quotes by Aanchal Malhotra
#39. I have grown up listening to my grandparents' stories about 'the other side' of the border. But, as a child, this other side didn't quite register as Pakistan, or not-India, but rather as some mythic land devoid of geographic borders, ethnicity and nationality. In fact, through their stories, I imagined it as a land with mango orchards, joint families, village settlements, endless lengths of ancestral fields extending into the horizon, and quaint local bazaars teeming with excitement on festive days. As a result, the history of my grandparents' early lives in what became Pakistan essentially came across as a very idyllic, somewhat rural, version of happiness. #Quote by Aanchal Malhotra
Petterssons India quotes by Sidin Vadukut
#40. The aloo gobi is perhaps to North India what apple pie is to America. It is cheap and easy to make. Like most Indian dishes, you can make aloo gobi in as complex or rudimentary a fashion as you wish. You can eat it with rice, rotis, parathas or even with sliced white bread. A little leftover aloo gobi between two slices of white bread, toasted in one of those clamp sandwich-makers, and served with ketchup and mint chutney, is one of the greatest breakfast achievements of our species. #Quote by Sidin Vadukut
Petterssons India quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#41. Let us remember that we are all Indians eating Indian grain and salt, and living on the dumb Indian masses. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Petterssons India quotes by Amartya Sen
#42. Famines are easy to prevent if there is a serious effort to do so, and a democratic government, facing elections and criticisms from opposition parties and independent newspapers, cannot help but make such an effort. Not surprisingly, while India continued to have famines under British rule right up to independence ... they disappeared suddenly with the establishment of a multiparty democracy and a free press. ... a free press and an active political opposition constitute the best early-warning system a country threaten by famines can have #Quote by Amartya Sen
Petterssons India quotes by Anita Desai
#43. Many characters in the novel are representative of types that exist in India. He represents the caste system in India with an air of superiority, the caste system in India and the people thinking that western things are better. #Quote by Anita Desai
