Considering the fact that you have given us no links to back up your statement about North India being an awful place, I think sam_12 and the rest of the posters would have a hard time accepting such a potentially offensive statement.

Do you have statistics to back this statement?

And on what basis are you making this statement?

Again, statistics please.

Being "backward" makes you "bad"?

Re: Anyone from India?

junika3 I would love to give you statistics backing my claims,but the problem is most of the cases are not registered in the above states,meaning statistically they don't exist.
The governance is relatively poor,and the ratio of mafia is relatively high.This makes it even tougher for cases to be registered and investigated.

And when I say bad,I don't mean inherently evil or something,but because they are backward,education and employment rates are pretty low which leads to an increase in crime rates.
There have been violent agitations in the past against mass inflow of people from these states in states like Karnataka,Maharashtra,Assam(where some people were murdered),Tamil Nadu,etc.
And talking to an educated and objective Bihari guy or a person from UP would tell you the extent of crimes and mafia raj in these states.

I'm not from India, as such, but I've been there. Twice!

Re: Anyone from India?

I am from India.South of India,Chennai to be precise.I don't know Hindi.I am least interested in politics.The overall view about my country is its unity in diversity.I like my country's culture.
