Some people say that our government is inefficient and our laws are too old. Some complain that the municipality does not pick up the garbage and our phones don’t work. According to a few, the railways are a joke, the airline is the worst in the world and mails never reach their destination.
People say, say and say. What do they do about it?

Everybody is there to abuse and exploit the country. Nobody thinks of feeding the system. Our conscience is mortgaged to money. J.F Kennedy rightly said, ‘Ask not what the country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country’.
So let’s do what India needs from us.
