What would be India’s worst or biggest problems?
I think I am too small, completely lack the macro picture and therefore not qualified to answer this question. However here is an attempt –
1. Water Pollution: the way we pollute our river bodies, and the shrinking river bodies is terrible. We have closed down our ponds, lakes, and polluted our rivers. All this will take its toll – Ganga, Jamuna, Damodar – all rivers are terribly polluted and we are not doing enough to stop / change it.
2. Air pollution: To even think that it is LUCKNOW which is the WORST in terms of pollution is shameful. Mumbai, Kolkatta, Delhi, Surat – all are bad. My only hope is NaMo doing something – seriously. Hope he cleans up Sabarmati, Vapi, etc. are on the top of recall for him once he becomes PM
3. Health issues related to life-style: When you are a parent, you are shocked to see 22 year old kids saying ‘I have a Blood Pressure problem’ – stunning, but true. When you eat tons of packaged food, have big mugs of coffee, have 2 litre Cola bottles during the day, sleep during the sun times and be awake during the night, you pay a price. And that price is poor health. Parents can only see all this and get frustrated, but will be able to do nothing.
4. The vanishing Indian investor! On the financial front we are destroying the small, fledgling share market that we have. The blame is to be distributed all over the world – the small investor who buys indiscriminately, the non existence of Corporate Governance, the regulator increasing the cost of operations for the smaller players, – the list is endless and damn scary.
4. For the Sandwich generation, the other end of the spectrum is being able to / not being able to look after their long living parents. Some people of that generation are well provided for, but many are not well provided for.
5. Corruption: So well entrenched that being nice, honest, etc. are ceasing to be options.
WE NEED TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT ALL THIS. FOR a start go and Vote.
….maybe there are more?
