Gross National Product

Talkers are never good doers; this explains the proverbial sloth, idleness and complacency of the average Indian. Our material output, our productivity and production, our net contribution to the country’s Gross National Product (GNP) are all far too low. While people should learn to use their hands and to be active all the time (like the Japanese who have raised their country to the pinnacle of glory despite the havoc done to their economy during World War II), we have mastered the technique of whiling away time talking and talking, doing little positive, constructive and concrete work.
