It is not contempt.
Basically Indians want to be left alone and focus on solving their own problems. This is their trait since pre-historic times. But the northwestern border of India does not have any natural boundaries to prevent invaders. Earlier it were Greeks, Mongol, Turks, Moghuls now they are Islamic terrorist from Pakistan and beyond.
If they stop bothering India, Indians would cease maintaining big military and focus more resources in poverty alleviation.
It is not contempt, but self-defence to maintain a particular way of life. We genuinely believe in live and let live.
