The Cycle of Paper-Achievers: Why It Is Not Easy to Change India?

The Insect Killer

Ever wondered why in India things are always great on paper while in reality they don’t match up? Well, we have already known the problems of diversity in culture, society, perceptions, etc and what not. But even that is not the real problem. The actual problem is we, the Indians.

Here, very few really want to work. Almost everybody has their goals of earning huge money with working hard for it and enjoying whatever they can buy with that money. You will not find people who want to work for glory. If you find any, you are luckier than a person who has seen an alien. Most people are high in value on paper. They have great education, great work experience, and great everything, but on paper. For these paper achievements, they demand huge money, highly overestimating their capabilities.

Then there are people, who are rare, who want to work to glory. They think money will follow with work. The irony is that the paper-achievers get what they want without doing much, just by their overconfidence, arrogance and easy accessibility and visibility. The actual workers, who do things practically, are looked down upon. They are overloaded with work so that they cannot think and talk much and sometimes are crushed. They never get what they deserve, simply because they don't speak much and just work incessantly. The paper-achievers enjoy their lives and reach highest position of decision making since they cannot do real work. This is the real situation in India.

Rarely, talented people are recognized and rewarded because there are no talented people to find those. It is a viscous cycle. After a paper-achiever is chosen because of nepotism or luck, that paper-achiever chooses another like them and the cycle continues. It is very difficult to break this cycle, as real workers when surrounded by paper-achievers are hardly able to work. They run from organization to organization, company to company, to find respite but no avail.

If we want India to really progress and to see things actually happening in reality, we must break this chain of paper-achievers. We must form a network of real people, real workers, who want to work to glory, and keep on adding more to achieve exact results.
