The world’s richest 62 people now have more wealth than the poorest 3.6 billion combined

Charity being dolled out by the Super rich / a number of welfare schemes by the Governments  supplemented by efforts of the International Organisations seems to be more on paper.

Cant we find some novel method to fight poverty. In India we have 2% of net profit going to spending in corporate social responsibility (CSR) but we know these funds are prone to misutilisation through political links.Lets hope the ever increasing gap between rich and poor will start receding and deprived members of the society will find an opportunity to have sufficient money for the basic amenities for their families. I am reminded of a story which has left an indelible mark in my mind since childhood.

THE Final Three Wishes of Greek King of Macedon – Alexander The Great. while going back to his country after winning wars  in a serious state of health. He said

“When my coffin will be carried on ship to my home town keep  both my hands out of the coffin for public to see

.This will let people understand that I came to this world in empty hands and I will leave this world also in empty hands.”

A fatal disease lurks in India’s air, water, and soil. But nobody knows about it

I was sweating after reading this post as the reported disease has the maximum number i.e 50% cases from India and there is no patent medicine for treatment of this deadly disease. The more we are progressing in terms of growth and development, the more vulnerable we have become to unknown diseases. Hope the Government of India is aware of the facts and must be taking remedial steps for safeguarding the public interest
