millions and millions of money wasted
in providing basic need to the citizens
but do they even get a minuscule crumb
leaving the population practically dumb
the health is the most sick department
the sports ministry is effectively lame
the education dept can’t read the needs
women welfare section brings us shame
agriculture has become a barren field
the tourism is wandering elsewhere
water resources have already run dry
and the railways just don’t care
labour dept is no longer laborious
power ministry is too deep dark
no one really cares for the poor
the politicians have turned shark

This amounts to around 133.5 million families! Is the authentic report false or these politicians are lying? Which poor people are they talking about?
So in this ocean of poverty that has been watered for years, three in four households in rural India, earns less than Rs. 5,000 a month and there are whopping 90 % households who earn less than Rs.10,000 a month. Going by this figure, whether the limit of Rs. 24,000 a week imposed by the government is less? May be less for those who want MORE, but surely the poor man is not going to withdraw more than Rs. 96,000 in a month. Continue reading
