I live in Chennai, but I've also lived in Delhi etc. Bullying is very common in India, especially in schools and colleges. There is a term that people use to describe this, called ragging. Many students even kill themselves because of this. It is a general view that Hindus are essentially gentle people ... but how does one explain bullying that seems to be present all over India? Isn't this a contradiction - Hindus are gentle but they're also bullies? How can both be true?
