4: They may be rich but they are body shoppers as pointed out by Chetan Bhagat. They entice young talent and throw them out in 5-8 years. They are rich but they can't be like Bill Gates, Ferrari, Jobs, Godrej, et al so that people can make a career and retire. They should recall the tortures of their struggling days and should try to alleviate other people's problems. That is what Late SL Kirloskar used to say.

6: many blame the population as the "reason" for e'thing..the corrupt governments-mainly led by politicians, governmental functionaries, greedy businessman, middlemen-brokers who cant do anything but bribe, unlawful policemen, unaccountable judiciary are the people responsible for the current state. a strong janlok pal bill, judicial reforms electoral reforms is the only way out as a next step towards a"good governance".......not that things will transform N become good overnight, but will have the teeth to bite the "culprits"...a strong public support from educated middle class and equal support from lower N lower middle class in terms of dharna's/silent rally-protests etc will eventually make this happen....all of us need to support "Anna" for this so that we can have this in reality------controversies will come/accusations will be levied as Politicians does not want "corrupt free" atmosphere....let us all be together and lets us all understand that "there is no free lunch" for any one and each Re needs to be earned hard....

7: why is india still poor with child labor, poor water supply, unreliable electric supply, forced prostitution,
hunger and so on?

one answer politicians. businessmen create wealth and create jobs. politicians create and exploit issues. ofcourse businessmen end up sleeping with politicians or else they can never amass this much money. go figure.

if per-capita daily living wages are $2 it takes only $2B a day to feed the folks in india. so it is not that too difficult to eradicate poverty but for the middlemen.
