Completely agree with Sanjay
I am from India too
it gets tiring here every year
First when Vijay mallya brought the f1 team, lots of people were saying "how can he buy the team, he should feed the POOR and look after his POOR country" etc etc
Next the same thing repeated when India got the race
Now its the same again
Actually i am offended by what manchild said
I am a Doctor working in Kerala now..... here for below poverty line people Health service is completely free, all the investigation, surgery , drugs everything is free of charge.
And Govt schools are free for everyone till high school levels here in Kerala.
And free meal for all the students who cannot afford it.
The caste system and its discrimination is almost abolished here for like 50 yrs now.
Moreover lower caste people(only those who are poor) get special prevallaiges here
They get special quota for all educational categories, and all Gov jobs
Its actually much preferable to be in the lower caste.
And i dont understand why people get worked up when India is going to host some international events?
You might heard of IPL (if not u are living under a rock)
Its run and owned by Indians, its a multy billion dollor cricket event....and all the players around the world are begging to join it
All in all its perfectly clear that India has money and can invest in all sorts of sports (which in turn will bring more money)
Before the British invaded us, India was one of the richest countries in the world. Even richer than Persia. When the British left we became one of the poor countries in the world! There are still Billions of dollars worth jewellery and artifacts in England which was stolen from us.
So in just 60 yrs of our independence we have developed this much, and we are actually fastest growing country even faster than China...and will become one of the super powers in near future
