As Indian

parliamentary elections approach,

politicians’ promises resting

on uplifting economic status of the poor

will get more assertive and aggressive.

As these promises become louder, headlines may be expected to display the same more prominently. The unwritten rule followed in general by most politicians is to try convincing voters that “magic wand” to achieve this rests only in his/her hands. If this was really possible, the poor Indian would not have continued to suffer as he and his family still remain deprived of even proper meals. Death of farmers by suicide, owing to their being debt-ridden and/or being unable to earn enough just to barely feed their families has not come to a halt. Unemployment continues to hit practically all, except of course the millionaires and billionaires who have enough to sail through probably for few generations.
