love or pretense?

talking of India and our own Indians I generally fail to understand when specially people who speak so loud and clear about their country and love for their motherland  never miss an opportunity to show their shopping or stuff from overseas..their brand name purses, shoes ,nail polish and even their phirangi friends....
what should I call them ?? suggest me...
I think when you are so much of  Indian and in love with country please help to endorse our own brands or posing pictures in our own dresses and show  our own rich culture and heritage ..we are no less then others.. 
why copy the west and keep pointing others(NRI's) that they have no love for country.,,,
if we are in our own country and endorsing the western brands its a shame ..why?? what kind of love is this for motherland...
why show -off... please people be yourself otherwise don't show this fake love for your motherland...
there are also those people who talk jus for India..good bad or ugly but a true picture ..never pretended or shown a rosy picture unlike these fake people ..I respect them ...
Respect only those people and opinions who have genuine love for country not to make money through blogs or endorsements .... specially endorsing the western brands and talking all crap about people and Indians living abroad...
 do you respect these people?
what would you say about them?

you are so right..why should we be proud of foreign things..we get everything in good quality in India and our dresses too loook so e;egant and beautiful.

hmmm....I think the same...but people are people and we can't correct everyone....

Harman,

One should love own country from heart and so something to contribute for it's well being. At the same time one could keep pace with times also and products offered by advancement of technology irrespective of origin and see if the same can be produced in own country. Those who talk more loudly as to how much they love own country are basically hypocrites trying to hide some deeds. One need not make big show of love for own country.

Take care

Harman,

A couple of typing errors :

Instead of "so" it should be ... "heart and do".... .

It should read as " ..... with times also and utilize products.....".

Agree with you and this was very much in Vogue about a decade ago. Now a days they have realised that the same (or better quality products) are available here in India. Another reason for the slow down in this "brand show" is because 90% of the stuff that is available abroad (States as well as Europe) is made in China !!!

Just so true.... be proud of your own thing :)

That is because we are HYPOCRITES.. simple answer..

we follow or do everything westerners do yet we say we are so proud to be indians .. I can add so many things to the list ..

THe ones i hate the most are who go all ga ga over India but say all nasty things about abroad or the country they live in .. I hate those people the country that feeds them they think so wrong of it .. how can they be loyal to their own country

Hypocrites! on one side they disrespect NRI's and bad mouth them for leaving their motherland and on the other side they silently desire to go and settle down in a foreign country and enjoy the riches of the world!
