Or maybe they are easier to maintain since you stole an entire continent worth of land from the natives, and are now gate-keeping others from entering it? 

 

Easy on the sanctimonous self-righteousness there.   Pollution becomes a problem everywhere on the planet where population density is high, and more so, if government revenues are low. 

If the aborigines were still in the majority and were controlling the country then no Indian would want to move there. The 'convicts' made Australia what it is today. Otherwise it would be another Samoa or Papau New Guinea.

Yes, India does have a great history, but that's about it. My Italian friends just went to India 2 months ago, they just returned and they told me some of the stories.

 

They have two daughters who are 12 and 16 and they told me about all these men surrounding them and taking photos of them, men staring at them etc. They said the pollution in India is terrible, people just throwing litter in the streets with no care, slums, poverty etc, they said some of the places looked modern but that was only 10 -15% . They went to Mumbai, Goa and another place, but they did not enjoy themselves, they said most of the people they met were trying to scam them, kept harassing them etc. 

 

I have wanted to go to India, its on my bucket list, but a few people told me as a solo woman in India it is very dangerous, so I think I will cross off India after what my friends told me and the things I have seen on YouTube, I just don't want to take the risk.

 

I'm not saying all Indians are like that, but don't want to go to a country were there is no respect for women, and no respect for the country in general. Despite Indians claiming that India is wonderful, to me that is just lip service when they are willing to throw rubbish on the beaches, on the streets, defecate in public etc.

 

And the Indians I have met tell me how great India is and how much they love India, I have asked a couple of Indians when they plan to go back to India, and why did they leave India but I still haven't heard anything from them.

It's true. My wife was perved on and even groped in a church (of all places) in Goa. I had to rough up the perpetrator but could not go to far as I did not want to end up in jail in a foreign country.

I would not advise any young woman to travel to India on their own. Even the middle class people can be perverted, I've come across some of them in IT here in the UK.

 

I dont know why Pakistan was brought up in this thread. It seems that Indians like to console themselves with the fact that India is not as bad as Pakistan. That is like saying a broken leg is better than a broken back. Compare yourselves to China and Japan not Pakistan if you want to improve yourselves.

More random India-bashing, this time from the UK, passing off some anecdote as some statement of proof/truth. 

 

Let's deal with the UK now:

 

The number of rapes per 100k in India is 1.8(from the earlier source).

Since, Pommie-stan wasn't on that list, another source was needed: 

https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/rape-figures-for-england-and-wales-highest-in-europe-sr587qnck

Quote

The number of rapes recorded by police in England and Wales is the highest in the EU, according to official figures published yesterday.

Almost three times more rapes were recorded than in France, the country with the second highest number.

The number of rapes relative to population was also highest in England and Wales, at 62 per 100,000 inhabitants

 

Sadly that number is also going up in England and Wales

https://www.statista.com/statistics/283100/recorded-rape-offences-in-england-and-wales/

Quote

Rape offences have increased dramatically in England and Wales since 2012/13 when there were around 16.3 thousand incidents. After this year, rape offences increased to 20.75 thousand, then 29.3 thousand in 2014/15, before increasing to 35.8 thousand in 2015/16, and 41 thousand in 2016/17. In 2017/18 there were almost 54 thousand rape offences recorded by the Police in England and Wales, an increase of over ten thousand when compared with the previous year, the largest year-on-year increase in this period.

 

The next argument is usually that such crime isn't reported in India. Pre-empting that tired excuse, anyone objective or at least familiar to the field of Psychiatry would know that is a problem in every country. It is a psychiatric phenomenon where women feel guilty or ashamed to report rape and sexual harassment. That is why women across the world report feeling unsafe even reporting cases of sexual assault/rape, and, thus, cases are under-reported everywhere. 

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7298584

Quote

Abstract

This study was designed to determine whether or not more women are reporting sexual assault, and whether or not previously noted theories about why women do not report continue to be valid. The study revealed that only 18% of the adult women's rapes and only 11% of the assaults of children were reported. For adult women, the primary reason for not reporting seemed to combine a type of guilt as well as embarrassment. The implication of this finding is that even as external social factors change, the internal psychological barriers to rape reporting may remain.

 

The number for the UK is 

https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/an-overview-of-sexual-offending-in-england-and-wales

Quote

Females who had reported being victims of the most serious sexual offences in the last year were asked, regarding the most recent incident, whether or not they had reported the incident to the police. Only 15 per cent of victims of such offences said that they had done so. Frequently cited reasons for not reporting the crime were that it was ‘embarrassing’, they ‘didn’t think the police could do much to help’, that the incident was ‘too trivial or not worth reporting’, or that they saw it as a ‘private/family matter and not police business’

 

And, of those reported, the number actually prosecuted are:

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/crime/rape-prosecution-england-wales-victims-court-cps-police-a8885961.html

Quote

The proportion of rapes being prosecuted in England and Wales has plummeted to just 1.7 per cent, new figures show.

Campaigners said victims were being failed by the criminal justice system, after one woman told The Independent that police claimed her attacker could not be caught if she failed to hand her mobile phone to officers.

New Home Office statistics suggest the alleged perpetrators of more than 98 per cent of rapes reported to the police are allowed to go free.

 

In 2018 only 3.8 per cent of sexual offences resulted in a charge or summons, down from 5.6 per cent the previous year. Just 1.7 per cent of rapes resulted in a charge or summons last year, compared to 3.3 per cent in 2017.

 

Charities say the 57,600 rapes recorded by police in 2018 are only a fraction of the real figure, because many victims do not report assaults.

 

By at least that measure, the UK,, or more specifically England and Wales is less safe than India for women. 

 

This shouldn't be surprising, as that country just had thousands of young girls groomed and raped by dedicated gangs, and their politicians can't and won't do anything tangible to address the issue.

 

They don't even consider men getting sexually assaulted by women as rape. 

https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s11572-018-9485-6

Quote

Under current UK legislation, only a man can commit rape. This paper argues that this is an unjustified double standard that reinforces problematic gendered stereotypes about male and female sexuality. I first reject three potential justifications for making penile penetration a condition of rape: (1) it is physically impossible for a woman to rape a man; (2) it is a more serious offence to forcibly penetrate someone than to force them to penetrate you; (3) rape is a gendered crime. I argue that, as these justifications fail, a woman having sex with a man without his consent ought to be considered rape. I then explain some further reasons that this matters. I argue that, not only is it unjust, it is also both a cause and a consequence of harmful stereotypes and prejudices about male and female sexuality: (1) men are ‘always up for sex’; (2) women’s sexual purity is more important than men’s; (3) sex is something men do to women. Therefore, I suggest that, if rape law were made gender neutral, these stereotypes would be undermined and this might make some (albeit small) difference to the problematic ways that sexual relations are sometimes viewed between men and women more generally.

Looking at the statistics, one wonders to what extent the actual number is deflated.

 

 

Of course, why go all the way to rape? Let's see what the UK-wallahs say about their own country regarding sexual harassment, shall we?

 

Some people in Pommie-stan are demanding the passing of laws to combat the amount of street harassment that occurs in the UK. 

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2019/may/02/criminalising-street-harassment-britain-france-catcalling-groping

Quote

If you’ve not been catcalled yourself, chances are you’ll know someone who has been. In 2016, research from the End Violence Against Women Coalition found that 64% of women of all ages have experienced unwanted sexual harassment in public; among 18- to 24-year-olds, that percentage increased to 85%. With figures like these, you’d have thought we’d all be talking about street harassment. But new figures from children’s charity Plan International UK suggest that isn’t always the case.

Of the 1,004 girls and young women aged between 14 and 21 they surveyed, 66% had experienced unwanted sexual attention, grabbing or groping, or indecent exposure. But 42% of them didn’t tell anyone. 33% said they were “too embarrassed” to open up, 28% didn’t think they’d be taken seriously, and 14% said they had kept quiet because they felt they were to blame.

...

In real terms, the number of sexual offences prosecuted dropped by more than 4,000 in the year, from 14,967 to 10,937, despite sex crimes recorded by police rising by 9 per cent in the same period.

A country with increasing sexual crimes is also experiencing a decrease in prosecution of such crimes. 

 

Of course the same country refuses to prosecute some of those crimes because:

Quote

Last year the most common outcome for rape cases was listed as “victim does not support action” (40 per cent), followed by other “evidential difficulties”, no suspect being identified and prosecution “not in the public interest”.

 

It's no surprise that 

http://www.stopstreetharassment.org/2016/03/uknationshstudy/

Quote

Changing Their Life:

When it comes to feeling safe, 63% of women (versus 45% of men) said they generally feel unsafe in public spaces and almost half do conscious “safety planning” when they go out in the evenings.

 

 

After reading all that: and if I were a cartoon, I would advise women to not go to such a dangerous country like the UK. Luckily, I am not such a cartoon. People with even average IQs know that sexual harassment and related violent-crimes are a global issue which needs to improve everywhere. 

 

If random goras who want to promote some YouTube channel on an Indian forum would do well to keep their ill-informed India-bashing to a minimum. There's a reason their YouTube channels don't already have subscribers. 

 

That these same disgusting people are using sexual crimes to indulge in their faux-patriotism is sad. One wonders why such creatures need to hallucinate some horrible India to prop-up their countries' imagined greatness and/or moral superiority. Maybe this reveals how shitty their own countries actually are and attempts to tear-down India are a coping mechanism. :hmmm:

 

We Indians already know our country has problems and we are working to fix them. We don't need gyaan from people in rapidly devolving societies where gender and species are social constructs and who having legacies of genocide and slavery that would make Hitler green with envy.

Are those forced activities?

Many people of both genders earn a living stripping . Many students pay through college doing that.

 

 

A voluntary activity is different from a forced crime .

You answered your question. It becomes a forced activity if they have to objectify themselves in order to pay college tuition, because they cannot find an alternative job where they don't have to objectify themselves. It displays flaw in the system itself.

Yeah, I did not once mention Pakistan, but yet Pakistan has been bought up in this thread along with insults towards me. I don't really care, I can bet you that all the people in this thread trying to  throw **** would be the first people lining up to leave India.

 

That's why every day Australian customs and border arrest and deport Indians and other nationalities who try and come here on fake visas etc, I don't blame these people.

 

But Indians take the cake they come here and all of a sudden become "patriotic" towards India, while living in Australia and getting all the benefits of living here.

 

I have asked a couple of Indians who were telling me how great and wonderful India is, why they left such a great country, but I am still to hear from them. 

 

Australia has a lot of problems as well, I am not saying we are perfect no country is perfect, but at least here we know what we have, and we are proud, not a fake proud.

 

I have traveled to many countries, but whenever I come back to Australia I fall in love again with the country.

Natural. Everyone has a special place in their heart for the land of their birth. Also your nations problems don’t compare to ours. You guys literally stole a barren continent and until literally 20 years ago we’re less civilized than most developing world nations in terms of treatment of the natives. Plus your problems are that of 25 million people living in a resource rich continent, not that of 1/6th of entire humanity.

That’s not a valid argument since flesh trade is always higher income than most other work. So you can always say ‘ there was no other way for me to make 500 bucks in 3 hours except being a prostitute’

Well that's a hard question, living in Australia we have food from every country, 

 

But I like Japanese, Sri Lankan, love the old barbie, Italian, Greek etc. Love the old snag on the barbie, well you made me think, I guess I love all food.

 

My comfort food has to be Tim Tams and ice cream.

They can find aternative jobs.

They my not pay as much, or may not be at convenient times.

Not everyone is opposed to objectifying themselves.

If you look at insta ....a lot of people seem to find pleasure in doing so.

 

That is not what forced activity is if they are doing it themselves for money.

A lot of people get up everyday to work at jobs they hate,just to earn money.

We can say the same to them....why are they forced to do the job they don't like.

Barbie is a BBQ and Tim Tams are like biscuits, they are two malted biscuits, with a light chocolate cream filling and coated in a thin layer of textured chocolate.

 

You can have a Tim Tam bong, you  just bite of the edges on both sides of the biscuit and dip it in tea and suck the tea through, that is heaven.

That was not your sole reason.

The other reason was to put India and Indians down like always.

 

India and Indians have lots of problems and we know them and are willing to discuss it here with people who really  wants to discuss.

It is difficult to take some one seriously who probably hasn't made many posts on icf that are not aimed at thumbing down Indians.

 

You want to be taken seriously?...then post like that.

 

If not.....you can continue posting like you do,without breaking forum rules.

 

As for visiting India alone....don't do that. It is not safe . Not worth the trouble .

I will have to try Tim tams but I am not a cookie type of person.

 

What do you typically BBQ, beef, chicken, pork? Over charcoal or gas grill. Do you smoke meats also?

So what’s your problem ? We dont think all white people are the same. You introduced yourself as an Aussie, we took you for your word on it. So therefore when I say ‘ your people’ , it means Aussies. Seems like Aussie schools are just as crap as Canadian public schools . 

 

Now answer the questions posed to you please and acknowledge what has been replied to. Thanks.

A BBQ can be over coals, or gas, typically when we BBQ a pig we BBQ it over coals.

 

You can BBQ anything, seafood, beef, chicken etc.

Bbqing seafood is pretty much ruining seafood unless it’s a rich fish like salmon.

I like bbq but my go to food is rice and lentils. I can eat that everyday. You need to try Indian food it is not bad.

If I go to a restaurant and order Australian food what would that be?

I am Aussie, that's what my passport says.

 

One of the most powerful passports in the world, if I may add.

We usually BBQ salmon, or a fish that will hold up.

 

But most of the time we BBQ beef, pork, chicken etc.

I don't really care, I can bet you that all the people in this thread trying to  throw **** would be the first people lining up to leave India.

 

look Aussie girl or pak imposter what ever. you had peoples curiosity initially your rants made you seem like a pak troll. Indians generally feel great about India, Indians generally bitch about India too, its normal. Its abnormal for an aussie girl to come here and try to put down a whole different civilization, yours is only a nation state India is a civ.  Learn to respect other cultures. Those Indians immigrate to Australia since they like it there, many migrate elsewhere since they like it elsewhere, most stay back not just because they can not immigrate but because they care not to.  you would look stupid and a troll if you try to generalize 1 billion people, so stop being stupid.

Lol. Mine is US And Canadian. I don’t need more passport power. But given that when I said ‘ your people’ and you expounded on Greek origins, it only goes to show how uncultured Aussie identity is that it needs to be propped up by where your parents came from, etc etc. Maybe I guess this is why you are jealous because when Aussies go elsewhere they go ‘ I am Canadian now’ but those of us who come from civilizations that are thousands of years older than anything Europe has produced and especially a 150 year old colonized land as Aus, we never lose our identity.

I'm happy for you, you managed to escape, may all blessing fall upon you.

@OzGirl You haven't answered my question. Why does the channel have videos of Air India taking off, landing in Mumbai, train sheds, and dil chahta hai song in it. Why are you still posting new videos from that channel here. Most people have been to America and seen their roads and parks. Its no new thing. No wonder people here consider you a pak troll. Or even worse you maybe a David Headley type who scoped Mumbai before 08 attacks posing as an American. Considering the recent events and pak aggression towards India, that is a valid possibility considering your posts :suspicious:

Sorry.

 

My sister was in India a few years ago, she was staying in a place called Kalina which is close to the airport I believe? At that time she was studying to be a pilot, and was interested in planes etc.

 

And also her channel was meant to be like a vlog of her trip to India, but she has lost interest.

Why nah ? So Indians going to Canada is escaping but Greeks going to Australia aren’t escaping , eh ? Nice double standards.

When my parents came to Australia there weren't the problems India was having and still is having, expect WW2 maybe, because the war had just ended in Europe and Europe was in turmoil.

 

But every Indian I have met here keeps saying India is great, maybe India is a fantastic country, but my question is a normal question why  do to they run to the West as soon as they get the opportunity? It's just a question, nothing more.

 

But I don't think there is a war in India, so why are so many people trying to escape a great country?

So it was literally worse than India in every single way except for throwing trash in the streets: less jobs, less food security, less industry, less high end living for  skilled people. Got it.

Ask your Greek parents the same damn question. Every Greek I’ve ever met also thinks Greece is awesome and are super proud of being Greek. They also ditched and ran, escaped etc. like you think we do.

Girl, your parents left after 1945. So not fleeing war. Ask them the same questions..FYI Greeks are the largest population( as a % of their home population) fleeing their country in the last 15 years. So why are Greeks fleeing or does that make Greece a cr@p country ??

Answer my question, I guess Indians are good at ducking and weaving, why are so many Indians running away from India? It's a simple question, why do they run away to the West and then claim how wonder, and great India is.
