    India in reality? Truth or Fiction?

    If we are to believe media, the rural and the poor – 70% of the total population – do not exist. We have been persuaded by politicians, journalists and socialites to believe that Rakhi Sawant's kiss is a more pressing matter than the issues of health facilities, water, poverty, education, law and order, delicate urban infrastructure and many many more basic necessities of life. This, one must emphasize, is scandalous.

    NyayaBhoomi's website is not for the satisfaction of intellectuals’ hunger for the hot topic of the day, where yesterday is forgotten and liaisons of a newcomer actress with cricket stars take precedence over suicide by 1,000s of farmers. We look at the current status of important aspects of nation’s life as well as major issues confronting us today. We look at the real India – India that sends those pot bellied, shapeless and shameless politicians into parliament who eventually control everybody’s destiny – India that has been largely ignored. No real progress in the country is possible unless our actions and discussions begin to touch upon the lives of the masses.

    On this site, you will find no more of the so-called positive virtues of India and the greatness of its culture that we ceaselessly continue to brag about. This chauvinism has led us nowhere, much less forward. Instead, we focus on what has terribly gone wrong since independence; What has made this richly endowed country a nation of beggars, poor, deprived, disease, ***** and utter misery; Why nothing seems to work here, nothing moves. Why India has failed its citizens in the most primary of duties, and why we inhabit the most sticky nation on earth.

    On each of the following pages, you will see a snapshot of the current status of some of the major ailments that afflict our country. Of course, we are not talking about solutions yet; solutions that lie in reduction in the size of the government and its interference in our daily lives, empowerment and freedom of the individual and getting rid of the misplaced ideals of socialism, communism and harassment in the name of governance by our mai-**** sarkar.
    Shame of India

    Illiteracy

    [​IMG]

    Master Kesra Ram is posted in a small village in Rajasthan. A deadwood hutment, no water for over three miles, no table and chair, no books, but only wiggly children squatting on sand - this is what the system has given Master Kesra Ram to work and educate India with. Little wonder, he neither works nor educates, as he drones out his tired tutorial. No blackboard, no chart and no imagination whatsoever assist him in this tedious task. Masterji persists with his meaningless lessons in literacy.

    13 year old Chandu was beaten by his teacher till he vomited; he doesn't want to see a classroom again. Jhuri Saini has been attending school for the past three years; she can't read. Eight year old children in class 3 in rural Madhya Pradesh are being taught lessons in family planning.

    Barring China, India has more illiterate people than the entire population of any country. From 1881 until this day, the government defines "Literacy" as the ability to read and write a letter. Education hasn't meant more than just that to us in a century and a quarter.

    Come to think of this: How would you feel if a child in your family was denied education? Think now and think hard. You may perhaps just begin to grasp the horror of illiteracy.

    Gender Bias

    [​IMG]

    Seven out of ten village women are uneducated. Barmer's literacy rate for women is a meagre 7.7%. Being poor also means being discriminated against for gender. Less than 10% of daughters in poor households complete eighth standard compared to one third of the male children.

    Rate of women's deaths due to lack of healthcare facilities is substantially higher than that of men. Who hasn't read stories of young women being killed by their family members for daring to fall in love with the guy of their choice? Has anyone known a guy being killed by his own family members? Women complainants against **** are routinely subjected to insult and humiliation before the society and in courts. Women are not allowed to enter thousands of temples.

    It is indeed a scandal of the gigantic proportion and a reflection on the "great culture" of the so-called "mahaan bharat" that half of the humanity in this country enjoys little more than a wretched life within the confines of the four walls of the house. Our great traditions apply a different standard to women than they do to men. In politics and business, women occupy a low single percentage point positions of power and authority.

    Justice Delivery System

    [​IMG]


    In India today we witness crimes being committed, but there is no criminal! During the first half of 2006, India’s justice delivery system was put in the dock and adjudged guilty. In a series of high-profile cases, the criminals have not been brought to book and there is widespread perception that the system has not delivered. Indeed, there is a near total failure of the system.

    Witnesses who turn hostile have now become a regular feature, clearly pointing to the role of money and muscle-power. It seems that the effects of money and influence extend beyond the witnesses. Often, the accused are the kin of politicians and other powerful people.

    A combination of shoddy investigation, poor prosecution, sheer inefficiency, corrupt authorities and general insensitivity in the society have ensured that the criminals go scot-free.

    The impression seems to have grown amongst the well connected that they can get away with anything. Sadly, they seem to be right. It is difficult to recall an instance of anyone from the power-class being convicted - despite dozens of cases of corruption, ****, rioting and even murder.

    The police - by and large - are willing recipients, as is much of the bureaucracy and politicians. As a result, the law and law-enforcers are neither feared nor respected.

    India’s judiciary has, for long, been respected for its independence, erudition, and vision. The highest court has delivered many landmark judgments and has sometimes been a more powerful voice of the people than their elected representatives. Yet, the overall system is so overburdened, its arteries so clogged, that its heart is in danger.

    Cases that linger for a decade or more - thanks to endless adjournments, transfers, vacations and procedural flaws - make courts the place to delay justice rather than to seek it. Add bribery, threats, false cases and hostile witnesses, and what you get is a mockery of justice. Little wonder, then, that those who can take the law into their own hands do so.

    A number of reports and commissions have made some excellent recommendations for desperately needed police reform. However, the absence of people’s pressure has made it easy for politicians with vested interests to scuttle any reform.

    Meanwhile, those whose voices carry weight with the government have focused on all other aspects - from privatisation and economic reform, to FDI and labour reform - but not on the pressing need for radical reform of the justice system.

    The corporate world - and, indeed, all of the educated India - must realise that if there is one show-stopper for an economy on the roll, one deterrent to investment and one storm to end their shining party, it is social upheaval.

    If over 160 districts in the country are “Naxal-affected”, at least part of this growing spread of violent armed action is due to the perceived lack of a fair and equitable justice system. The answer to Naxalism is social and economic justice, not merely more police forces.

    1984 violence against Sikhs, forced exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from Kashmir and their genocide, intrusion of foreigners in North East and sufferings of natives are some manifestation of the system not being made accountable. It is time we woke up.

    I was away and just logged in.. If possible give me the links .

    I usually dont participate in threads like that but the fact that this source ( some organisation, not even a news source) is from my own nation made me react .

    Also is the fact that the thread starter has been known debating with the same motto and same words since he joined in and has never been seen participating in a healthy debate.

    His words are mostly about poverty and hygiene in India and its interesting since it comes from a person in Thailand.

    I dont know whats his problem with India.

    Poverty

    [​IMG]


    Has it ever struck you who are the thousands who die of "cold wave" or "heat wave" every season? When malaria strikes or plague spreads, it is always the poorest of the poor whose lives are sacrificed.

    The government itself estimates that 320 million Indians, the largest concentration of poor anywhere in the world, are too poor to afford one square meal a day. Rural low caste poor are forced to live on the fringes of villages and suffer acute exploitation at the hands of feudal land-owners. Babus gloat that the number of poor has come down to 21%. Would that satisfy you if you were one of those 21%?

    Have you ever seen the rural poor speak? Probably not. They invariably 'lament' or 'plead' or 'beg' for attention. Sometimes, they even 'wail' or 'weep'. Being poor also means a very high chance of being illiterate.

    The government's anti-poverty programmes are badly targeted and poorly implemented, including the nation-wide food ration shops, where the non-poor end up at the head of the queue. It takes the government an expenditure of Rs.4.35 to transfer one rupee of income to the poor.

    So much for being the world's largest democracy!

    Hunger

    [​IMG]

    Two year old Ramsu is a young life ebbing away, thanks to insensitivity of the government. Two out of three children are mal-nourished in the country. In certain areas, as many as 50% infants die of hunger which is usually disguised by the more decent word "malnutrition". One out of every four mothers dying of hunger in the world is an Indian - a record which puts to shame the distinction of being one of the highest food producers. Food, which we Netizens take for granted, is an alien word for a sizeable Indian underclass.

    Selling of children in return for 300 rupees is not uncommon in parts of India. That at least keeps the hearth warm for the remaining. Thousands of women are pushed into prostitution by the need to keep the wolf from the door. Humans compete against dogs and stray cows for their share of food found in the heaps of garbage. Imagine your own siblings or children in their place and you will only just begin to confront the reality.

    Green revolution (food) and white revolution (milk) may have given the government an 'achievement' to pull in votes with, but an average Indian is entitled to only one cup of milk every three days, an egg every five, a banana or a coconut once in 10 days. Thus he would manage to stave off malnutrition, to the enormous relief of the government which can then safely go back to counting the poor. Or the deaths of poor due to 'diseases' which we all know is another word for 'hunger'. ******* of millions of tonnes of foodgrain is just another statistics for the politicians - an achievement in fact for them to brag about the self-sufficiency in food production.

    Health

    [​IMG]


    Kasturi's 3 year old daughter developed diarrhea, which itself was a function of water pollution. Her parents rushed the baby to the nearest government health centre 4 km away. When they got there, they discovered that the place hadn't been visited by a doctor for two weeks. The couple still have no clue why their daughter died.

    Government health centres in rural areas and towns are almost always deserted and have precious little facilities; medicines are rarely available; many child-births go unattended, & many mothers bleed to death for lack of ambulances. Our infant mortality rate is one of the highest in the world. No nation has more people suffering from blindness and tuberculosis. We have the highest number of malaria deaths and HIV-positive cases.

    Family planning has failed miserably - with the population doubling between 1976 and 1996.

    At 0.7% of GDP, India spends less money on health than any country in the world save three African nations. Setting off a health revolution with a budget that earmarks the princely sum of 50 paise per patient is not an easy task. Funds for healthcare have whittled down from 3% of the budget to 1% in the past 45 years. A chunk of this reduced funding goes to urban hospitals and into the pockets of government babus at the expense of rural and poor people.

    Why can't a country of 1,150 million produce talented sports people?

    We have no heroes because we have forgotten the ones we had. Gopal, pictured right, who played in World Cup Hockey in 1978 today crushes stones in a quarry to earn Rs.50 a day. Our sports people who play for world cups are forced to buy their own gear due to lack of funds. Yet there seems to be no dearth of money when the minister himself decides to embark on a foreign jaunt to "study" the methods of sports promotion.

    Every sixth person on this planet is an Indian, yet India won only 1 medal in the Olympic Games out of a total of nearly 300 medals. Is it not a shame that even this pathetic performance (or the lack of it) failed to spark off so much as a debate?

    Need we comment on the state of cricket? A senior editor of a leading weekly wrote that he doesn't care if Kapil Dev had taken money in match fixing case. An emotionally charged guy he is, but what about the emotions of those who feel betrayed by these cricketers, in whom they once saw Gods?
