Many of us are not either extremely rich or really poor, but we know about extreme poverty – it is and has been all around us for our lifetime. However, things are slowly getting better. A non-Indian report (note that – this is not a government report) has said 44 Indians, which is nearly 10 or 11 families are coming out of extreme poverty each minute. India’s poverty rate was over 50% for a long time but has been slowly dropping and this report says we could hit ZERO poverty by 2030. While good to read, for those affected it could not be fast enough. While this is happening, more people would be moving up from lower economic levels to the middle class – and all this is happening right before our eyes…
Actions, factors that will help to move faster are happening now – fast and faster growing economy, stable political environment, corruption is going down (really big!), faster infrastructure development, good policies – and much more. Our personal feeling is we will achieve the targets faster at higher quality meaning – more people moving up the economic chain…

Demonetization or “Demo”, the overnight ban of the old Rs. 500 and Rs. 1,000 notes provided a massive shock to those with black money, corruption and terror funding. Yes it does create difficulties, long lines, jobs lost, business lost, slower economy, and much else – these are all short-term and visible, and it is easy to talk about this.
What is less obvious and visible many benefits are harder to see and understand:
a) fear and anxiety of those dealing in corruption and cash;
b) terror funding – printing of fake notes, freely distributing all can stop anytime,
c) more people filing income taxes,
d) cash is disappearing from larger transactions,
e) faster digitization, and many others.
Finally, most citizens have understood this and are supporting it and are patient, while the media and intellectuals are all upset. Future demo actions, yes they are going to come is our prediction, would be easier to prepare for and handle – would send new shock waves to the bad characters.

1) We need to change the fact that the Indian Judiciary lacks transparency and accountability. The appointment process of judges is really opaque as is the punishment given to judges who may break the law. 2) Why must the Supreme Court of India comment on almost everything because of a PIL hearing (public interest litigation) or more like private interest litigation. This is well known but not much is being done to thwart the wheels of justice and/or slowdown the judicial process. 3) Lower courts are riddled with acute corruption, but rarely are judges or other staff sent to jail.
