No doubt you are right, but things will improve only when we can contain our population. Right now the governments dont seem to be too interested in that. So you know where you can put your 7000kms of road when the poor are selling their kidneys ‘to survive’.

To all Indians here, one has to ask themselves what they are doing to develop their own country, rather than bashing about India, passing judgments in a forum.

Creating better living conditions, puplic transportation, controlling pollution, education and jobs for the 500 million poor, creating better consumer products in a non polluting and energyefficient way, recycling waste, maintaining and redesigning old cities, are some of the challanges that India faces today.

Think.. Rich is getting richer and poor is getting poorer in India.

If the corporates /businessmen deliver such poor services they will not suvive….
I don’t understand how corporate giants can fix the mess created by the government bodies or general public( mess created by lack of basic civic sense by most of us..)

As patel rightly pointed out ,you can make out the difference the moment you enter an airport managed by a private developer say Delhi airport and any other airport managed by the government. I am sure the experience is no different if you visit a govt hospital..,govt school or any govt office for that matter.Why blame Corporate Giants…

What I meant was although the English invaded us they gave us English, and that gave us unity.

When the moghuls invaded us, they gave us disparity by forcibly converting many of our people to their kind.
I know I digress, but just wanted to make my point clear.

And like Patel, I am a very proud Indian too, and the moment we land at an Indian airport, worst of all, Mumbai, thats when we know how backward we still are compared to the rest of the world. Why dont the corporate giants stick something into the government to fix the main gateways (to the rest of the world at least), even if they cant fix the mess deep within.

Besides that All Is Well!!!

India is where she is now in world economy only because of the English plundering our wealth and educating us through missions.

Being the worlds largest democracy, sorry, largest illiterate democracy makes it easy for the politicians to buy votes.

So stop these inane comments about how corporate India needs to chill while the poor are suffering. Like the numbskulls who say India shouldn’t go to the moon because there is so much poverty.

They are entirely different entities and have no direct effect on each other. The one thing these major corporations can do, more than adopting poor communities, is to pressure the government into curbing the population. Till this is done there is no end in sight and this is exactly what the politicians want.

Most of our enterprenuers are from wealthy family. While it is good to see India growing this way in almost all fields, i get concerned the moment i step out on the street, where you find people struggling to make ends meet. What i wonder is, how many enterprenuers have we made from this lot? Not a substantial number i guess.
