We, the half-hearted warriors

Excerpts from an article by Mr Rajinder Puri published in 'The Statesman' yesterday.

'......In the natural course, such silent cross-party collusions would have resulted in major political realignment across the political spectrum. But that is unlikely to happen. Indians are half-hearted warriors who fight only with half-measures. They are always willing to wound but afraid to strike. Political realignment seems out, more chaos seems in.'

The two italicized sentences above interested me a lot. How true! Most of our evils do flow from these so well defined characteristics.
