Corruption, poverty India's bane

The rich are getting richer whereas the poor are becoming poorer and this is the greatest setback of democracy where politicians and officials enjoy at the cost of others. If there is any GOD then He only can save the democracies where the votes are considered valuable without any help or action to the needy masses. This is the reason for Maoist movements, increasing crime rates in cities and farmer suicides.

It was disturbing to see the photo of a child with the ribs propping out of body frame in Mumbai metro edition. Is it in India or Africa was my first reaction but after seeing the details that it is in one of the talukas near the commercial capital of India or South East as PM and FM say, I have no comments but just to sit and shed tears.

This is happening all over the country and the rich are becoming richer whereas the poor are becoming poorer and this is the greatest setback of democracy where politicians and officials enjoy at the cost of others. If there is any GOD in this universe he only can save the democracies where the votes are considered valuable without any help or action to the needy masses. This is the reason for Maoist movements starting from Nepal.

In all the Indian cities the crime rates have increased to such an extent that it is not possible to live. Slightest provocation leads to riots and destruction of property even in US and UK, leave alone India. There is some time of unrest which one can understand from the scenes. There is an inner urge to fight because there is nothing else to do.

The unorganised are exploited to such a level one cannot imagine, farmers are becoming beggars, tribals and poor are sold like cattle even today. All the world and Indian leaders have to sit and think or else the hungry mobs who have nothing to lose save their lives.
