Re: Whither debate? Alienated NRI Nonsense!

I do not think what he has said is nonsense. Perhaps, living within a
campus makes you think that life in India is a bed of roses. I've lived
in a campus myself and I know that a few crores are pumped in so that a
few people have email connections at the cost of
taxpayers.  Out here in the real world, getting through to VSNL is a big
challenge. I manage around half an hour spread over a total of 10 hours!
Internet is just one example. Let me assure you that here in the  real
world, life is miserable. The ones to blame are the policy makers and
bureaucrats. Of course, the politically ignorant voters of India deserve

their share too. After all, voters of not all  countries think that
growing onions is the
responsibility of the Government.
