Understand where are we going? What will happen to us? Why do we need to think, plan and execute right now?

People criticized 'Indian Planning Commission' for their manipulation of data about the poverty scale of Indian population. Many have commented that UPA influenced the data. Even I was in impression that politics is creating the illusion but somewhere within me, I was grasping the fact that this just cannot be the only political stunt and when I read Mr. D Subba Rao's statement in Time of India today morning, I realized that my doubt had some voice. Including Dr. Rao and me, readers must not misunderstand us as a supporter of existing government. As Mr. Montek Singh Ahulwalia rightly pointed that 'whoever comes on chair... poverty in India is on its way to reduce and it has nothing much to do with politicians'
Let me put you on the statistics
'From 37% poverty in India reduced to 28% since 2004 to 2009' that too if we calculate based on the PPP model of UNESCO i.e. a person with spending capacity of $1.25 a day should be termed as 'not poor'.
This fact, as per D Subba Rao, is calculated with passimistic approach as during 2009 India faced Drought in many states. If Indian research agencies can table the data of 2011, this figure will be further cheerful as monsoon was perfect in 2011.
He further explains that one should not rub eyes on media tubes to believe what they say... they misrepresent the data as
Media asks how planning commission can conclude Rs.22 & Rs.28 per day is sufficient to live for a person? when a liter of milk costs Rs.37 and a dosen of Banana costs Rs.60?
Fact is 'Rs.37 a litter Milk and Rs.60 a dsn banana can hardly be purchased by a person who earns Rs.28.86 a day' yes indeed.... but the if you know "Poor men in India do not eat Banana and Milk in break fast!" to earn 1600 calories 40mg. Channa Dal and 100Mg. wheat Roti is enough and it costs only Rs.18.80 for a person in a day which is achievable.
I strongly do believe that Government of India is not responsible for the poverty in India Directly!!
It is the mentality of Indian which is demonstrably plays havoc on Indian underprivileged population. A rickshawwala in Delhi earns roughly 300-400 Rupees a day (this is quite often larger than the earnings of many IT peasants of the same city) but he buys Drugs, Brown Sugar or such things everyday! for meals he is happy to beg in front of any Gurudwara or Mosque or Temple... There are many examples, dwellers living in horrible jhhuggies in cities are capable enough to have decent house but they dont... In states like Chh'grh and MP where government is selling Rice and Wheat at Rs. 2 & 3 a Kilo... government better knows that this food grain are stocked by the local merchants and later sol in the free markets. Quite unsurprising that the very ration card holder sells his share of grains to local market and makes money form it. Entire PDS system is used up by goons and mafias.
To further disappoint you, I have another very good sad news!!
Indian family structure is practicing 'Hum do Humare do...' well happy? you should not! lets talk statistically once again...
In Urban India 55.5% family have less than 2 children, 39.1% of families have less than 8 children & 5.5.% have more that 9 children. In Rural India statistics goes 47.1%, 45.8% and 7.1% respectively. Now look again, 7.1% of rural population having more than six children in family... Do you think this household is capable of effective education? Out 0f 72% population living in rural India 52.9% households are having more than four children in home! These households barely have good economic health. Forget about the awareness about the need of quality education! They are simply not capable of having education of global quality... Imagine! what will be the future of India?
Well, I am just not stoppable... here is another
7.1% urban families are well educated, small nuclear families of India are well aware of the importance of education (good news) they want their kids to get global education (good news) they want their kids to not settle in India (bad news?)
52.95 rural families are not educated, are bigger families of India do not give a damn to education... want their kids to migrate into bigger cities of India to earn livelihood. Uneducated energetic young Indian in city where their is no jobs! what will they do? kidnapping? Ransom? Killing? Rape?
Statistics show 9% students of good schools like DPS, Kendriya Vidyalya or Missionary Schools settle abroad for quality life. 26% gets quality life in metro cities of India and so they get settle there... 40% gets their life dwelling in tier two or three cities.... With such a brain drain... Imagine what will be the future of India?
Need a Solution?
