The keypad has undergone change with the introduction of QWERTY mobiles.
The keyboard is likely to undergo change with the introduction of new symbol for the Rupee!
The parks in the metros have undergone change with the renovation plan.
The roads in the city and NH have undergone change with the introduction of flyovers and bridges.
The theatres have undergone change with the introduction of multiplexes and malls.
The public transportation has undergone change with the introduction of luxury buses and Maharaja on wheels.
The list can go on and on and on like Duracell….
But sadly, one thing which has not undergone change is the POVERTY line...
According to a report, more than 42% of India’s population of 1.35 billion still lives below the poverty line. An urban family (of five) earning Rs.2200 per month or less and a rural family (of five) earning Rs.1650 or less is poor is considered to be below poverty line.
It is hard to believe that nearly half the population is below the poverty line while the other half is busy upgrading the mobile at least twice a year.
Is it not wise to start a factory and employ several hundred people in the surrounding area rather than to put a cell tower and provide signal to thousands of people in the area?
