[mukto-mona] The Stockholm Syndrome -- for Jiten Roy

      I have been talking about the starving Indians with anger against the corrupt food delivery and management system of India..  Jiten Roy's generalized Right wing comments on the "downtrodden" of India shows how backdated his ideas are and that he has no info or idea about the present situation in India. I should dig out that photo -- of sacks of foodgrains under the open sky, just rotting in Harayana, a fertile, food-growing state. In other words, people are starving in India NOT because it is a poor country.  It is not.  Some of world's top 20 billionaires live and work there.

      What the hell does Jiten Roy mean when he pontificates: Usually, the situation of the down-trodden improves when a country prospers. It's a matter of time.
<< About the concern of the poor and down-trodden in India, Farida Majid should stop shedding her tears on them. Usually, the situation of the down-trodden improves when a country prospers. It's a matter of time. If that does not happen, even God will not help those down-trodden ones. Only good advice for those down-trodden ones is that - get off your butt from the couch and avail all opportunities to mitigate your financial hardship. That's the only way to change the status quo. If you can't, you are a hopeless. Go look for government help, which can only maintain the status quo or enhance the poverty. There is no government (even the dictatorial one) in the world who does not want to please the majority, who happen to be the poor, by improving their economic status. We still have poor in the most prosperous countries in the world. If government policies could eliminate poverty, it would have been abolished by now, at least somewhere in the world. I haven't seen any; have you? Don't show me some some Scandinevian countries with per capita income among the highest in the world.  >>
