Well @Deepak, I don't think you got my point clearly.

My point is very clear that subsidies should not be given in educational system because it is so simple to understand that person having less percentage than who belongs from the category which has fewer subsidies get selected on the basis of his category not because of its knowledge. Do we really need less knowledgeable person?

On the positive hand softness of India is very much beneficial to the citizens. We have people of all religions residing in our country peacefully. India is not an extremist state promoting a single religion or caste or creed. Every person irrespective of caste is granted equal rights and the freedom to practice duties. Also, people of backward classes both economically and socially are provided with subsidies regarding education, medical facilities, food grains etc. India runs democracy and supports peaceful collection of people for a horizon of reasons. There are limited laws on the society level.

Mahesh said: (Oct 14, 2016)  
Yes, absolutely. I have no doubt about India's softness.

Surely it has two sides as my earlier friends say.

So if we take the positive one which describes things like helping other countries, full freedom to all kinds of citizens, peoples never speak through there high voice they speak through there actions like ISRO who made so many achievements,

Now let just talk about negative things. Not taking serious action against Kasab.

Religious problems like SC categories have to pay less fees in every part of living expenses like college fees, exam fees for different central departments vacancies, in traveling, they also required less percentage for every sector, it should not be like this because if someone has maximum marks and from poor family but he belongs to some open or OBC category still at that time preference is given to that SC guy. Is it right? at least this religion should not come into our educational system because it helps to grow the distances between religions. I think this system must change, if it is then just thinking about the one who has percentage will go forward and will do much better so that's why I think our country is too soft.

Yes, we can that India is a soft nation because the government here helps the public, especially poor people. If we compare today with previous years then we will get many improvements in all sectors. It not only help its own people but also throughout the world where the need arises, for e. G. When there is earthquake, tsunami, flood or any war. India is developing day by day with newer advancements in technology and making the life of people easy and comfortable.

Everything has two different sides, softness towards the decent and genuine thing is good and appreciative but when it comes to our respect and honor, we have to raise our voice against.

E. G-the recent matter of URI in INDIA, if India takes any action against Pakistan before the time & attacks and not always replying their tough ego with softness instead of any strict action.

India is a nation of heart, gives us the opportunity and value of living a life.

We have made a progress in the field of Education, Job, Environment, Business, Industries etc.

The government has played an important role in this as great leaders have developed many situations and progress.

If we look at the history of the country which outwardly demonstrate that India has always been a soft Nation.

First being that India has never made a country its colony but the opposite has happened, it has been a colony for 200 years.

2) India is deep rooted with corruption which is happily acceptable by the Nation. For instances 2g scam, AWG scam, mining scam etc which has cost India thousand of crore rupees.

Hello everyone,

After reading all the opinions, I think everyone has their own stand on this. But according to my knowledge India is a soft as well as a hard nation.

Soft because India is a sacrificing and tolerating country. When we see our history there are many intelligent minds who fought for our country and sacrificed their lives for the Indian freedom. On the other side India maintains the peace with all the countries, it welcomes all the foreigners, receives them as a guest people in India has a great family relationships.

While coming to hard, there are some of the social evils which are still making India as a developing country like dowry system, caste system, corruption in all sectors. Women domination etc. India becomes a perfect nation when Indian citizens know their responsibilities, when they come out of these social evils.

This is not a question which is dichotomous. It has several constraints and without discussing them we can't conclude how is our stand towards combating terrorism. India has zero tolerance policy towards terrorism and it is because of our affirm actions that we remain safe from these terrorists even having such a neighbor which indulges in promoting terrorist activities towards our us.

We are termed as the soft nation because it is felt that we let them go on various occasions, but it's not the case, we can't handle every situation in the same manner. We need to have a thorough understanding of the situation and proceed with those actions which suit it in the best manner.

Hello, everyone!

I am in favor of the topic. Yes, India is a soft nation in more senses than one. As an Indian, I am proud to say that I belong to a country that does not promote violence by attacking other countries, even when targeted upon, treats guests as God and is in favor of helping other countries in need.

But it pains me deeply, that my country cannot stand up for her women, for the soldiers who fight to protect her, for the heroes who work hard to put her name on the global map. It is disappointing that India is nowhere next to where she should be, considering the immense potential in India.

However, looking at the past and the history India has, I am confident we are looking at a bright future :).

As per my view, yes India is a soft country. It believes in peace and harmony. It has never initiated any fight by itself. It is rarely been heard that India has ever been involved in any of the terrorist attacks. But whenever any other country has needed any help India has been ahead of helping them. Taking an example of J&K. Though these people want to be separated yet at the time of help it was India only who offered for help in the time of need and adversity.

So India is a soft nation but it can be hard and rough if the situation demands so.

There are some more areas where India needs to be strong like taking decisions quickly and providing justice to the victims as soon as possible especially rape victims.

In my view, INDIA is a soft nation because it's around 125 crore mixed religion peoples living in this country India is a one and only country in all around the world this much of different religions peoples living our country is always trying to be a soft nation. Due to bad politics, it becomes a hard nation if you examine certain recent incidents in JNU university, Hyderabad central university, NIT Srinagar etc besides all these university incidents most of the politics involved. Certain parties play politics mixed with some students who are worked for politicians. If such incidents again repeated the education system in India may collapse everyone has looked into this what is the reality and try to solve problems in a systematic way then only our country becomes SUPER POWER.

INDIA is becomes a strongest economy in the world recently the number of billionaires in our country has also increased like this corruption also increased due to politicians if you seriously looked this one how to cross the country with thousands of crores loan with banks even he don't bother about notices also what is doing the govt and system fist of all we have to change our system if we cannot change our system it is very hard to become and be a soft nation.

In future, we have to fight with climate change, terrorism, water wars etc. If we solve out common problems 100% we succeeded with this calamities so for this it is necessary to become a soft.

Actually, there is a certain dilemma of whether our country is actually a soft nation or not. Cause while stating the point that India is a soft Nation, I should not forget the 26/11 attack, if India would have been a soft nation, then it won't be possible to recover from such miserable, drastic and painful circumstances.

So proud of being an Indian and we are hard enough guys.

No, according to me it will be wrong to say that India is a soft nation, actually all these depends on the political will which reflect view of the nation but as overall we can't say that India is a soft nation. When it comes to give the reply to terrorism or cease fire violation we will no longer remain the soft nation, so according to me though India doesn't start the violations but while giving the replies to their enemies it is not soft nation.

We can see the war of India Pakistan in 1965, evolution of Bangladesh in 1971, Kargil war etc, and and coming to the internal matters it's Judicary take all the necessary action to give the justice to each we saw the cases of Suresh Kalmadi, Asaram Bapu, Yaakub Menon instead of their caste, racism, religion judgement comes, so saying saying India is soft nation will not be justifiable.

I think any country is soft or hard is decided by the their peoples democrat and rule to punish a culprit. India is not a soft not hard, it is a notion of corrupted people & politicians.

1 - In case of Yakub Memon who involved in Mumbai blast every politician try to make his political profit by supporting Yakub Memon Yachika. No body thinks about the damage of country by this blast.

2 - If a common men goes in any government office then no officer do the work without any bribe.

3 - I think punishment for crime in India is only for a common men. Because in this country a celebrity and politician never get punishment for their crime they do.

Due to the all above reasons I think that it is a corrupted country, efforts are made to reduce the corruption. But I think it is not possible because we have political parties who are thought for their own party and interest, they do not think about the country.

I would like to say a few word on "is INDIA is a soft nation ".

According to me India is soft nation in some cases and hard in some cases. Actually it depends on the time and mostly it depends on the people and govt representatives who were living in this country as they are the part of the country.

There are few aspects by which we can say that India is a soft nation.

1. We live in the world which was inspired by great leader mahatma Gandhi which is non violence, so we the people of India will max try to avoid wars with the other countries. Because we know that the wars brings nothing except the decremented in the nation treasures and economy.

2. We try to maintain peace with the other countries in many ways as we know that India gives or provide home to many people from many countries.

There are some other aspects by which we can say that India is a hard nation.

1. As I previously told that soft or hard depends on the people and govt representatives living the country in past days we have seen many sexual activities, illegal trades, eve teasing and many other by this one can tell that India is a hard nation.

By this I conclude that in many ways India is a soft nation. We have to be proud that we were born in this great country.

1. India has various religious and group which doesn't let the leaders to take some hard decisions like on Kashmir issue after winning the war India can vacated the Pakistan occupied Kashmir but we didn't that soft behavior of India is paying off in terms of cease fire violation everyday in Kashmir.

2. There are various other issues like women harassment, eve teasing, rape cases etc on which we soft stand that lead to increase the no.of such cases.

3. As all of us know that India is a peaceful country, being a peaceful nation it help us to create good relationship with other countries which will lead to the development of our country.

According to me I think India is soft country, India has always been very liberal, even in circumstances were it had to take critical decision like for example, early in 2010 or so India passed a law stating that people who are held in rapes cases will no more get a bail, but it hardly took a very few days to withdraw the same.

Hello friends.

I have few points why India is a soft nation.

1. We actually maintain a good relation with the other countries following the principles our great leaders.

2. One more thing is that India is a country with different religious and we all are living with great relationships these can can showcase our greatness.

I have to say that in some cases India it has not show their softness to the social evils like women harassment, dowry, corruption etc.

Hello everyone,

After reading all the opinions, I think everyone has their own stand on this. But according to my knowledge India is a soft as well as a hard nation.

Soft because India is a sacrificing and tolerating country. When we see our history there are many intelligent minds who fought for our country and sacrificed their lives for the Indian freedom. On the other side India maintains the peace with all the countries, it welcomes all the foreigners, receives them as a guest people in India has a great family relationships.

While coming to hard, there are some of the social evils which are still making India as a developing country like dowry system, caste system, corruption in all sectors. Women domination etc. India becomes a perfect nation when Indian citizens know their responsibilities, when they come out of these social evils.

Hello friends,

I think India is more soft than hard because in India we have various religious and groups who doesn't let the leaders to take some hard decisions in Kashmir issue even after winning the war we could have vacated the Pakistan army from Pakistan occupied Kashmir but we didn't and that soft behaviour of India is paying off in terms of cease fire violation every day in J&K.

Hello everyone,

Well according to me India is soft as well as a hard nation. We follow the principles of both Gandhi and Bose.

We are trying to solve issue of Kashmir without any war or violence but on the other hand we fought a furious war against Pakistan in 1971 to liberate Bangladesh making it a independent nation. That was in terms of foreign policy. But within the country also we can see a soft and a hard nation.

Is India a soft nation?

Just like a coin has two sides similar is in this question too.

If we have a look at north eastern states which have different problems and peculiarities like these areas are less accessible to people moreover the porous nature of the border enables easy cross for criminals or terrorists. In addition to these they have education problems, electricity problems and many more!we have week foreign policies and no strong rules are made against punishments to the terrorists found. So in these cases India isn't taking actions and is a soft nation.

Whereas on the other side of it India's first interplanetary mission was introduced last year. We are the first Asian nation to reach Mars orbit, and the first nation in the world to do so in its first attempt. Plus nuclear progress in India also depicts that India isn't soft nation. We all know the conclusion of a "preliminary contract to develop a power plant in Gujarat" by Westinghouse and Nuclear Power Corporation of India Ltd (NPCIL) was announced in a joint statement by Indian prime minister Manmohan Singh and US president Barack Obama.

So all these points and many more concludes that India can be called a soft nation and cannot. But there are few things like terrorism etc where our country shouldn't show the soft phase rather fight with it aggressively!

In my opinion Indian is a literally very soft nation. You can judge this view by the terror attack of 26/11 where the most danger terrorist Kasab caught during the attack and our government of that time spend lot of money at that terrorist.

We lost many honorable Intelligent and courageous officers now we are missing them because they were the very special creature of God and we didn't want to lose them but the bloody terror attack were the end of their life. I think this loose softness is in our law, our political leader not in our nation. Our nation is very very strong for stronger and soft for softer.

Yes a nice topic for discussion, I think India is continuously changing its status i.e. from soft to hard nation I want to verify my points by saying that our army personnel are brave one's but are not retaliate in that manner which can make the enemy to think upon our strength, as our soldiers gets be headed and we always remain reactive not proactive.

And in terms of hard nation we all have must heard about the war of 1971 in which our former primer minister Smt. Indira Gandhi took an proactive actions and attack on the house of east Pakistan's and stated a victory.

So by this action it is evident that our country is reactive as well as proactive.

I would like to share my opinion on this topic.

India is a soft nation as well hard nation. We can consider India as a soft nation because our Indian army will never harm to other countries army. They always try to keep good relationship with other countries.

Whereas hard nation, when opposing countries army attack us our Indian army will never keep them alive. Other countries like Pakistan will never want to keep a good relationship with us which will turn our Indian people to kill them for their tress pass to our country (India).

India is soft nation, India has faced three war with Pakistan in which India had only defense itself. They not attacked on other countries, they also faces problem with china, many times Chinese army entered the border of India and tried to create disturbance, threaten Indian government by making small silly practice.

On other hand Pakistani terrorist came inside the India and often disturb the piece of India, many incident like Mumbai attack, Delhi blast, head cut of Indian army over the border, Delhi bomb blast, banaras blast etc are the example are very sufficient to explain the terror in India by Pakistani terrorist, . I think India soul is lies in non violence. They had show a lot of patience and create clean image in front of all the country over the world.

And their effort has success in gaining the trust of other country. Today many country wants shake hand with India in various field. India knows very well that calmness is the basis of growth, if we look over the Pakistan situation we find that their growth rate gradually down day by day. They are not well in education, not well in infrastructure, not well in agriculture. If India hard, they could use their weapons against Pakistan.

In case of justice, in comparison of all other countries they have very soft rules against the criminal that"s why there crime rate is very high. Rape cases are in huge amount. In society of India you find that people from each religion having helping nature.

India is place of many religion, people of many religion lives there and with coordination, all religion are at equal level. All religion keep its own importance instead of this India is unite why because principle of coordination exist among us.

Hi everyone.

I feel pleasure to discuss on this topic because I feel proud to be an Indian. According to my view India is neither a soft nation nor a hard nation. It totally depends upon the aspects that we consider a country can be judged as a soft nation or a hard nation depending on nature of people in that nation rules and regulations in that nation relationship with other nation.

When we consider the nature of people in India we can say that India is a hard nation because now a days many people are indulging in various illegal activities like sexual abusement, corruption, dowry etc which makes us to feel that people are cruel minded which in turn makes our nation hard.

When we consider the rules and regulations in our nation we can say that India is a soft nation because the culprits were not punished fastly in India like in other countries and If they are punished in one court they will go to other court which in turn increases the crime rate of our nation. This is because of soft nature.

When we consider the relationship with other countries I feel that India is a soft nation because we welcome all country people without any differences. We follow different cultures, traditions though there are many attacks on us we never try to attack any country we just defend ourselves not because we do not have enough power or army but wars cause destruction.

We follow the policy of Mahatma Gandhi our father of nation non violence not to get indulged in wars so that our country progress does not fall down.

So overall I consider India is a soft nation but it should become strong nation and enforce strong rules and regulations for the well being of the country.

India is neither a soft nation nor a hard nation, India is a diplomat nation. When it comes to attack of Pakistan in the border India is trying to solve the issue with diplomat manner. We cannot be soft nor hard on such issues because if your soft you loose a part of your country, if you try to be hard and go for a war your violating the rules of UNO.

The only way is diplomatic way. Another example while India is trying to make an international business it can't be soft, if it is soft we loose the profit, violate the law. If your hard you loose the business. If your diplomatic there are much chances of of making a fair business.

Hello friends,

My thoughts on the topic "Is India a soft nation?" is that yes, it is India is a soft nation and it will be turning softer and softer day by day and year by year under our respected Prime Minister Shri. Narendraji modi.

What softness means actually?

Softness in sitting quiet while the terrorist attack on us?, softness in passing comments rather than starting a change?, No not at all.

Its all about having a peaceful India, Where the oldies get respect, Womens should be empowered. Engineers should get jobs in MNCs, Every poor child has the right to study and take a stand in the society.

And of course "A CLEAN INDIA".

Clean in environment. Clean in politics, Clean in taking decisions, may it be in high court, supreme court or in political decisions.


The heart of the peoples are so helpful, so decent that makes us feel proud to be the citizen of India.

Hello friends,

According to me, I don't think that our country has a reputation of a soft nation. Yes the ceasefire violations takes place from our neighbour countries either it be from Pakistan or China. But not straightly get involved in the war can't be considered to be the soft side of our country. Our country has always been a nation known for peace and that is the reason why a developed country such as Russia is standing with us since 1975. A very few nation withdraws his forces after occupying the enemies territory and it's the Indian forces under Lal Bahadur Shastri withdrew after reaching to lahore.

India always take harsh measures where it is needed. See for example the juvenile act or dowry system or the corruption or black money. Our prime minister when recently went to America he was welcomed with big hearts. This shows the reputation of our country outside as this could not be seen as the sympathy.

Overall I think India is a strong and powerful nation having filled with a lots of potential and the whole world knows that. That's why every nation be it China, Pakistan, Japan, America or Nepal wants to be a friend of our country.

Lets take a look at our side before talk our nation is soft or not. Because whole people of this country made our nation. In India, day to day development coming rapidly and people becoming educates and getting employing in different platforms. So some people changed as soft and automatically we can say our nation India is also soft. But, I think India is partially soft nation.


>There is no realistic in our politicians, Number of Fake parties established to ruling us and our country.
>Cast system, Illegal acts of rude people, Corruption etc. Still take a top role in our nation.
>Education system turned as business.

So It's depends only on people of our nation. It's not enough having some good people. When complete change will occur in people then only we can say that our nation India is soft. But still I think India is partially soft nation.

Hello friends,

I won't consider our nation as a soft nation.

Just because we are not taking hard measures against terrorism or our boundary line disputes between our neighboring countries like china or Pakistan that doesn't mean that we are soft it just means we are taking the high road of non violence and are thinking to deal with such problems through mutual talks and understanding.

As we all knows that wars bring no good to the life of the people on any country. It just renders the growth and development of the country. It has a huge impact on the mass of people. There are a lot of examples on wars being fought between different country, and we all know that it has brought no good to the mankind.

If needed ours is a country with a huge military force, equipped even with nuclear powers, submarines and all sought of missiles, and it shows that we have the power to fight against any nation but this doesn't mean that since have the resources we have to use them. Wars only bring destruction and we should think about alternatives each time if we can avoid it.

According to me India is an extremely soft nation. Everyday we hear in the news about the Pakistani troops' repeated ceasefire violations and the difficulties the people living in those areas have to face. Each time there's a ceasefire violation people along with their small children living in those areas have to vacate their houses to move to a safer place. So we can imagine the difficulties in the lives of people living there.

We also repeatedly hear about the Chinese intrusions in various parts of our country especially Ladakh (recently Chumar and Demchok). There have been many terrorist attacks and attacks by Maoist and Naxalites as well. The soldiers of our country live in adverse conditions and without caring for their lives they protect us.

But, even after all this, what we get to hear is that India has either given a warning or cancelled a meeting with the country. India has a soft stand in these matters. Even after India raised objections of Pakistan's consultations with Kashmiri separatists, the Pakistan Govt still held a meeting with them. India really needs to think about this and take strict actions.

We know India has a strong military, powerful weapons which can the make the massives damages in our neighbouring countries. And these things our neighbouring countries knows very well. They do the filthy acts to test the India patience, to provoke India to counter back it, to disturb peace in India.

War is not the solution. It takes millions of life. It destroy the peace. Take the example of on going war between Hamas and Israel, the ultimate suffers are the civilians, especially children and women.

I feel great pleasure in discussing about this topic. Thank you indiabix.

Coming to the point "Is India a soft nation?" According to me, it is a soft nation in some ways. Take for example, our border securities with Pakistan and China. Every now and then there are news of pakistani army attacking the Indian borders and chinese army crossing our country. If India were a strong country, in this context, they would've taken some action. By action I mean we need to reply. Tit for Tat. Rather then reconciling with these two countries, we need to send a message that India is not a weak country in terms of army strength. But, due to our corrupt political system, these two countries are always encouraged to do the same thing. This was the soft part of India, which could effect us negatively.

While on the other hand, we always welcome people from different countries. We never judge them based on any differences. This is the soft part of our nation, which is very positive indeed.

Also, we Indians are not known for violence. The impression of Indians in front of the whole world: "Peaceful people, nerds, socially awkward, smart, good future. And so on. " But, again this thing can create a wrong impression. It goes like this: "If you attack Indians, they won't retaliate. So, keep on kicking them until they do what we say. ".

At the end, I'd like to conclude that in order to be a strong and developing country we need to have a balanced approach in our attitude. As our honourable PM Mr. Narendra Modi said: "We won't eyeball anyone, but if someone does, we know how to deal with it. ".
