Dear Arindam:

IPI is a search for the root causes of the problems; two critical root
causes have been so far identified:

	- corruption arising from the electoral law and seeping 
			through the entire governance structures

	- corruption arising from socialistic (or discretionary)
			policies of government seeping their
			way thro' the entire economic system

Other issues are debatable (religious, social, etc., policies) in terms
of being at the ROOT of the problems that you have mentioned. Surely our
caste system has much to do with the problem, but I am sure that if the
first two issues are taken care of, the other problems will become
manageable. IPI is therefore focusing effort on specificing the good
governance and economic policies we need in India. If possible, a good
and reasoned consensus will also be worked out on social policy.

Please help out by reading the draft manifesto and offering suggestions.

Things are really bad in India, but that does not in any way mean that
they are without cause or without solution.
