Hindus are seen as people who are keen on negotiating their existence, in the most trying times, by compromise and accommodation, rather than facing up and resolving the problems at hand. This perception seems to hold in popular parlance, because Hinduism is often described by its critics as escapist, which lacks a worldview. Quite erroneously this is thought of as an intrinsic feature of Hinduism. This attitude manifests in the common caricature of “chalta hai” (anything goes) and “Hindu Rate of Growth”.
