Few words on India’s 66th Independence Day
On the eve of India’s 66th Independence Day, I want to write about a common man of India, Md. Usman, a tailor from Bihar is working in Delhi, a matriculate who hardly earns Rs 4000/- a month (US $ 72). He is sole bread winner to his family of six members. He says, he hardly saves Rs 1500/- to Rs 2000/- per month for emergency needs, health care, medicines and for education of his children. He is ubiquitous face of common Indian. He is a common man and not a scamster like so-called VIPs and he follows his religion zealously. Tomorrow he will depart to Ajmer Sharif for a religious procession. I hope that the sunshine of globalization and urban development will brighten the lives of billion people.
Happy Independence Day.
