Deepak Chopra couldn’t get it more wrong; there’s no smoke without a fire.

Cold Play, Lost
Deepak Chopra’s recent article, Is India Having A Crisis of Soul?, is as disappointing and impoverished as the painful situation being reflected upon. You can read his old guard apology here:
Who would imagine that inherited and entrenched moral bankruptcy can ever be reversed by the economic empowerment of crony capitalists, communists, socialists, and nationalists equally exploiting the human laborer and the divisive prejudices of the Indian population?
Only those who share the ambition, irreverence, amorality, and lost innocence of The White Tiger a la Aravind Adiga.
More of that here:
If there is a change going on and a soul is awakening, there must be a long, terrible dark night – la noche oscura del alma. The worst is yet to be.
Perhaps, it will take years to roll down like waters. And I’m not talking about a recovery. That’s something else completely.
Deepak’s kind of staggering, teetering, zombie-esque, happy talk may provide some “needed” false reassurance to the foreign investor, foreign outsourcer and the native electorate, but soul work (like great blessing) is messy, takes seemingly forever, and hurts more than anyone would willingly bear.
Deepak Chopra couldn’t get it more wrong about India. Not surprisingly – his commentary about America always sounds like propaganda – ever unenlightened. It is also no surprise that my comment to his article was censored.
But however offensive my comment may be to Deepak, it is not a eulogy. I did not come here to bury India, but encourage her in these trying times.
Because there is always hope for the meek, the poor in spirit and those who hunger and thirst for righteousness. For Indians. Americans. Everyone.
