As a nation, we look to the west for moving forward, for developing. It has always been the nations in the far west – the US of A and a few nations in Western Europe. But there have been two major flaws till now. First, we have not followed their footsteps exactly – which is why, even after more than 6 decades of freedom from being under the Queen’s thumb, we are still a developing country. Duh! Not to worry – this is being rectified as we speak. We have now realised the importance of all those history lessons and have decided to start from the beginning. Second, we have ignored a vast gulf of countries between us and the far western countries. What an oversight, which is costing us dearly!
