The world bank is ready to provide loan, but if we are having sufficient resources, why we need to borrow from others. Please sieze the deposits in Swiss Banks by bloody politicians and other rich people in India. This is more than enough to succeed economically.

My only prayer towards this comment is please rescue India from this kind of bloody politicians and sieze the huge amounts from Swiss Banks and Banks from other nations like Mexico, Brazil, West African countries etc., towards the deposits by our Indian politicians and rich people.

Yes, I really proud of you that you are posting a comment like this being an Indian. But, you need to know something about our country. Our country is not a poor country in resources. We have enough resources. But, we are unable to use that so.

I don't want to motivate you but this consciousness something needs to be created in your mind. We need to fight with other countries not by any weapons. It doesn't works out. We need to fight economically.

I have a good project in my hand. But, being a middle class I am unable to execute this at present. But, one or another day I will definitely do it. This project is of agricultural project. You are aware that agriculture is the main occupation of our country. Don't think that I am asking you something monetary help from you. Because, so many people may think that if we are pitching something new to a stranger, definitely they are asking some money help. I am not such kind of person. My only intention is to make awareness to the people to like good life.

If my project is executed all over our nation then our nation becomes the commonwealth nation. I am sure. It purely focuses on the middle class people of our country.

If you are really interested to know about my project kindly contact me via email [email protected] com. Once I got your email I will explain my project in detail.

I think Our judiciery has to announce umar kaid to all corrupt politician

I think the world and everybody else is providing their best to develop India except the politicians.Because how much ever they get, they ask for more and rightly as one of the person above said, "if not India, it will surely benefit the corrupt politicians in increasing their bank balance in Swiss Bank"
We keep on borrowing and proudly claim that India is the single largest borrower from World bank.
Common man are dieing with high interest rates andthe amout of tax they are paying to government.
After CWG and 2G scam the mass should understand how corrupt people are we appointing and making our leaders.
I am proud of my country because of itsx past legend,its present beauty,the simplicity of common man but ashamed of the leaders who are suppose to guide us and lead us.

August 24, 2011

Thanks a lot to World Bank for supporting us. Hope this will be utilized in the best of interest for the public.

Black money from swiss bank should not come to india because again somebody will swallow the money in the name of funds given to people by politicians or by business man, it must be credited to the world bank for reducing our loan interest given to us.

September 02, 2014

as we are Indians we need to clear our loans we should have a fear and fire about friends we need to work hard and we should save our money from criminal politicians thank you............
