I needed a break and I decided
to revisit the United States of America. The last time I spent in this fabulous
country was 15 years back in the year 2000. Since then the country may have
sold millions and trillions of cars. So what would one expect in the new
America? Alarming pollution and unending traffic jams? When I landed up at Las
Vegas, all I could see were very wide roads and the air as clean as one can
That brings me back to my beloved country, its pollution,
its crumbling infrastructure, its intolerance and its horribly growing
population and poverty. I live in the capital city of New Delhi. It is plain
dirty and horribly polluted. Its infrastructure is terrible and it’s getting
worse. Every year the government brings new taxes to clean the air, the city’s
rivers, build new roads and educate its children. Where does the money go? The
air is thick with dirt and muck. People are unlikely to die of old age here in
India, rather asthma may kill its children.
What is the government doing about it? Delhi’s Chief
Minister Arvind Kejriwal is himself a victim of lung woes. Prime Minister Modi
is pure rhetoric. When do we see an India with modern roads and infrastructure?
If Delhi is so dilapidated, you can imagine the condition of places outside Delhi!
Travelling around the US, I feel India is hundreds of years
behind the western world in terms of development. It’s sad to see my country
disintegrate so badly. Politicians have ripped this country of mine
apart...stolen every bit of it....leaving it bare to its bones!
