    Look at the state of India, after 70+ years after independence; Corruption at every level: government, institutions and society. Poor environment and public hygiene. Healthcare is so expensive that people are terrified of getting ill. Only the rich can afford it. The country is choking with the population explosion. Millions of Indians _students, even though the country has thousands of universities, educated, all want to emigrate. Daily life, a huge struggle for crores of people.
    Well done India, after independence!!

    Looking at Modi at the Red Fort, dressed up with a turban similar what a loan shark marwari wears! That surely @Meghadoot is the achievement we witness after 70+ years after independence!

    @Meghadoot Do you think Electing Rahul and Sonia with Chidambaram will fix it?
