#3 A question for Dron66046, what do the Hindis feed their kids? and how do they thrive?

I understand that they are vegetarians as a whole.

#4 Not all hindus are vegetarian, SCFI. In fact you'll find that some Sikhs are pretty much omnivorous.

Hindus are 74-84 percent of the Indian population, and only 15 % of them are vegetarian. These are trapped in the religious hubris of a vedic age. Most vegetarians though are so by lifestyle choice. A food census in 2015 showed that only 20% Indians are actually vegetarian.

The north eastern states are the biggest consumers of pork and beef. In 2017, the right-wing hindu govt, in line with their policy of selective disempowerment and making the muslim miserable banned beef consumption and sale in some states. So beef is unavailable in some states.

The reason for low consumption of meat in India (what I think) is because of the shitty quality of most meat, lack of modernity in animal husbandry and the industry in general. I wouldn't waste money on rubbery steak from an Indian cow even if the govt allowed it.

More than diet it is the resourcefulness and adaptability of the Indian that enables him to get by and thrive in any environs. The average Indian negotiates an existence between a disinterested corrupt State, ravenously hungry religious and social mores, and his/her own ambitions and dreams which are increasingly expensive. I feel it's the adversity and the memory of it that provides the inertia to hardworking kids to succeed. Also no social security for the have-nots. Didn't study when you had the chance ? FOAD.

Real Reason for the 'thrive'

But the one most important thing that has helped Indians the most is the convent system of education given us by the British albeit under whip and musket, which became the substructure for all education reform in India. A centralized education board and updated certification and examination norms. Any affirmative action policies that we did implement were engineered in such a way so as to reserve some vacancies and admissions into education, but for recipients not to get promoted or employed due to unfair parity. You have to be smart and capable to negotiate the school system to grad to make a living. Due to this, the Indian techies that make it out of here, or the business geeks like Nadella you may encounter in the US and elsewhere are the best products of the Indian education system.

But it's not going to last. For a long time successive govts have been blindly aping the American schooling system because it sounds and reads cooler on paper. ☺

So there.

#5 I remember being told that many Hindus wouldn't rent to Americans, on the assumption that Americans would eat meat and therefore pollute the facilities.
