WHY IS THE INDIAN PSYCHE SO SOFT? India IN 1000s OF years NEVER HAS TRIED TO EXPAND ITS TERRITORIES AND DOMINATE

The national confusion about and bias against, military power, started with Ashoka who gave up wars after he was shocked by the scale of destruction in the Kalinga war. Ashoka, after the Kalinga war, was in the same state for mind as Arjuna was before the Kurukshetra war. One cried after the war, and the other, before the war. But Sri Krishna with Bhagawad Gita cleared the confusion of Arjuna and made him a warrior. But Ashoka did not have the benefit of a Krishna to clear his confusion. And his confusion became our national pride. We paid the price for that high-cost pride with invasions and destruction of India. Kalam’s Pokhran explosion cleared the confusion and transformed India into a global power – many in India are still not comfortable at this idea.
