    I found something interesting today.

    Dimensions of national culture from Hofstede Cultural Dimensions theory

    Briefly

    Source credit: http://geert-hofstede.com/national-culture.html

    So I decided to compare 5 countries. All these are approximations I know, but still quite interesting and they are pretty accurate I feel.

    As evident, we are a confused nation (Individualism, Masuculanity, Long Term Orientation) where feudalism is a norm (Power Distance), people are taught Mai-baap culture (Indulgence) and it starts within family.

    No doubt, for centuries we have remained in state of internal conflicts and family feuds and outsiders have taken advantage of our conflicts.
