indian Summer...


Recently ..I have been hearing lot about Indian weather and its effects...anybody you talk has the same story there are power cuts, scarcity of water ,generators and inverters are giving up ..heat strokes ..people passed...I mean so much discussion about climatic conditions.
Talking to one of my cousins ,she said I usually go to mall and spend hours there...if it was possible I would sleep there..
As far our infrastructure ..are we in a pathetic state ? where basic necessity is not available like light and water...I mean building up malls like US and Europe... putting up brand names,flashy cars... so ...where is the basic necessity...?
Born and raised in India...only mumbai doesn't have a power problem as far as I know...rest all the states pass through the same channel....
It was always like that ..even when I lived in India...summers were bad..I remember sitting in the balcony whole night and calling up electricity department in the morning and yelled at them ....the guy said" we cannot say about that ..but the power cut will start again at 2 pm.."..
Sometimes I missed my college as there was a power cut at night.... I mean when we hear news that people died of heat as there is no electricity... country is in sorry state of affairs....???
why???
when the country can afford to give hot line services to higher officials(where there is always a regular supply of electricity)why not some relief to a common man...
I think basic necessity needs to be taken care off ....
Its warm here in US too..but life becomes better with regular supply of water and electricity...
we do not have domestic help here...all cleaning or washing is done by us with help of appliances like dish washers or vacuum cleaners or washing machines... so..electricity plays a main role...and I guess the reason work goes uninterrupted all the time....
I think if we overcome the electric and water problem life in India it would be much more comfortable and will be like any other place we live inn.
and nothing is IM M POSSIBLE

As far infrastructure is concerned, India is way behind. Every time a new power project is announced, it takes about 10 years to complete that project, and they say, India has huge workforce. Half of the money sanctioned by the Govt. goes in Politicians' pocket. Corruption prevails even in the Western countries, but people know their responsibilities. Indian Politicians attitude is "paise khao...apne baap ka kya jata hai" and nothing else. And people elect the same "paise khau" govt. every time.

Corrupt politicians and bureaucrats -the main reason behind the pathetic infrastructure of India.'Sone Ki Chidiya' is in their captivity.
