13 in 14: India’s Very Serious Problems

Image

Media and pundits are not talking about these very serious issues. So, I am.
Because people simply don’t have the time or energy to go through long texts, I’m posting some pictures here. I hope some of us look at them carefully, and put pressure on the Indian and international media and establishments to discuss these issues.

These are only some of the issues. I hope to add more in the coming weeks, before the April national elections.

Without discussing these issues, however, this so-called biggest democracy with its 1.2 billion people, and the so-called open and multi-party voting system is truly a farce.

You decide how important these problems are. You decide where India stands after over sixty-five years of its so-called independence, relative to other countries. You decide which powers are responsible for this situation.

You decide how to bring these issues to limelight, and how to address these issues.

To me, they are extremely, crucially urgent.

Thank you. Comments and feedback much welcome.

Sincerely,

Partha

Brooklyn, New York

P.S. — BTW, there is no reason for anti-India elements to rejoice. I’d advise them to find very similar problems in their own countries.
