Hi Friends,

Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.

There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"

With regards,

In July 2014 , Rangrajan Committee defined the " Poor " in India as , following persons :

*  In Rural areas ............. those whose daily expenditure was Rs 32 or less

*  In Urban areas............ those whose daily expenditure was Rs 47 or less

That methodology placed below poverty line ( BPL ) , 363 million persons

Recently ,  NITI Aayog  has come up with a cut-off point of 40 % of the expenditure curve , which places 484 million Indians below poverty line ( 48.4 crore persons )

Now , if NDA government were to close down / shut down 53 loss making Public Sector Units ( PSUs ) , it would save , Rs 53 Crore , DAILY  (  Approx Rs 20,000 Crore every year )

That is a little more than Re 1 / - per poor person per day

Not much to feed his / her starving stomach

But enough to take out for each of them , that Medical Insurance , announced some time back , with much fanfare  !

Now , if NDA government were to sell off the assets of these 53 loss making units ( mostly the land on which these are situated ) , it may even succeed in raising Rs 10,000 crores

It is high time NDA starts working for the poor , instead of paying Rs 20,000 monthly salary to a few thousand workmen , who have no work and pass their time playing cards on the shop floors of these factories  !

If you have any doubts re my statement , just ask any TV channel to send an investigative reporter with a hidden web cam on the shop floors of these factories  !

You will see the pathetic situations of , what Pundit Nehru liked to call , these " Temples " of modern India

Temples from where the " Gods " of Productivity have left and parasite " Poojaris " reign supreme !
