Dr Kumar visiting American Indians

Vaidya Kumar has an opportunity to visit an Indian reservation in the USA. He is greeted cordially and is introduced to the tribes chief "Two Eagles".

After awhile Vaidya Kumar asks the old chief: "You have observed the white man for 80 years. You’ve seen his wars and his technological advances. You’ve seen his progress, and the damage he’s done."

The Chief nodded in agreement.
Vaidya Kumar continued, "Considering all these events, in your opinion,
where did the white man go wrong?"

The Chief stared at Vaidya Kumar for over a minute and then calmly replied. "When white man find land, Indians running it. No taxes, No debt, Plenty buffalo, plenty beaver, Clean Water; women did all the work, Medicine man free. Indian man spend all day hunting and fishing; all night dancing."

Then the chief leaned back and smiled. "Only white man dumb enough think he improve system like that."

The chief looks at Vaidya Kumar and asks, "So what happened in your country after the white man came."

Vaidya Kumar reflects for a few moments and reply’s, "Well, India was the richest country in the world before the white man came and is one of the poorest in the world when the white man left."

He thinks a few more seconds and says, "Before the white man we had a stable population, plenty of land and food for everyone. After the man we have a major population problem and many people are hungry."

"Before the white man came", he continues, "people were honest and did what they said they would. After the white man we have some the worst corruption in the world."

The old chief looks thoughtful and says, "Well on the bright side they taught you how to pee standing up."
