When you land at Mumbai next time , do peep below to get the aerial view of Mumbai- A true reflection of India . On one side , you have dozens of aeroplanes , and the other side hundreds of Slums . That’s India .
The government will remove the slums shortly, but the poverty will not go ,it will be shifted from the eyes of the viewer. You will have swanky buildings coming up on the slums- may be a new runway or another terminal etc. So after a few months, if a visitor lands in Mumbai and sees that there are no slums , he or she will imagine India growing much faster , slums disappearing …. Poverty vanishing off fast , faster than China .
Think before you imagine the real India . We are doing cosmetic changes and these do not impact the health of our nation
We need change at the grass roots .
We are still far – far away ………….
