Seriously...I would do better job. I could bring down crime rates drastically in my country. I could reduce taxes across board; I could improve infrastructure in the country... I realize nobody wants these things.

Okay here we go [EDITED] - ON the Lighter sides - I would do better job. - That is a big big problem here in India. I could bring down crime rates drastically in my country - that means either number of cops will get reduced, thereby increasing unemployment - OR - there will be too many cops meaning too many people joining in and lesser people available for other tasks I could reduce taxes across board - This will mean almost no balance with the Exchequer and so no new policies and scams can be done. I could improve infrastructure in the country - What? India is primarily an Agricultural Country. Improving infrastructure will lessen the number of farmers as they will want infrastructure which would be uneconomical given the small pieces of lands with them (small pieces because they want sons, and sons when they grow up want a share in property). I realize nobody wants these things - Not that nobody wants. It is just that those at the helm do not want.

@vandana7 Do you really need to ask this? I will be with you and everyone who comes up to raise the bar and did anything for the betterment of my country. I have known you here for years now, I do understand your thoughts better than I did earlier. And I know, you have a much better brain than many of these politicos. And best of all, you are honest. If things could ever go my way, I would love seeing you on that chair where you can take decisions and get them implemented.

That's how I feel. I could restructure the whole system over here to make it better for everyone. The point of the matter isn't how politicians can make it better, it's how they can make money from doing what they do. Anyone in office is usually corrupt and seriously, it would probably be in our best interests to purge them and then reform the countries.

And there is no way we can correct this. One of our good family friends is building a temple out here. I am so disappointed. He is so highly educated. But building temple can also be done by building dams and using one of the walls. Effectively, the visitors would pay for upkeep of those dams and river banks.

@vandana7 It needs to change. We can correct it if we make the correction sensible.

@OneOfMany ...They are set in their ways. But don't you think it is logical? People go near the rivers to pray...maintain the premises there...whatever they donate part of it goes for upkeep of the dam wall.

We do not really know what politicians want. Sometimes crime and disorder bring a lot of money into their pockets.

Not really. In India they don't want the poor to come up because then they have a section to which they can pay pittance before elections (less than 20 dollars each family) and take away their properties worth more than 2000 dollars simply because these poor are not sufficiently educated.

Are you sure? First of all, you are not legally approved to do it. I believe you know what I am talking about here. What makes you any different from the many who have said the same thing and failed? I believe the good nature and motives of yours but I think you've seen how people can change and turn when they are actually in the situation. Easier said than done here. Same goes for the other end, who seems to support you unconditionally and you find out at the last minute there are some hidden agendas and worse the actual puppet masters in the game. We never know what lurks behind and inside these murky waters. So, don't be too sure when there is really no headings which many have seen ideologically.

Our politicians always thrive by disrupting the community. If people are in harmony they would not survive the next second. Our laws are senseless and it scares us rather than protect us.

And what laws would you bring in to bring down the crime rate?

@vandana7 I strongly feel the Sharia Laws are good deterrents to bring down the crime rates. They may be primitive by western standards, but one can see the crime rates in the gulf and Islamic countries.

@karjatwala .. Sharia laws are primitive even by our standards. I said no statues for starters. Sharia laws do not have any recognition to something that allows people to embezzle. Moreover, I am sure Sharia laws existed in Egypt, Libya, Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan. What is the result? So we need to review all laws and bring them to contemporary standards.

@vandana7 Yeah he said only intellectuals, rich people with 20 bodyguards use the word "intolerance". Biggest intolerance is in the form of religions. People don't tolerate that do they? I agree what he said about Indira Gandhi that anyone who spoke against her has landed behind bars and the emergency. But he discredited himself when he himself started pointing fingers. He was calling the Justice out on his finger pointing but ended up doing the same himself. What made him any different? In Kanhaiya's sedition case, it was found that 2 of the videos were tampered with. They were the ones that showed those students calling out such slogans. Yeah we talked about Afzal on your post about JNU.

No...to enter it, we have to do a lot of wrong. Moreover, there is a term. Which means beyond that term, I would become powerless. I would, of course, be taking some firm steps which would not go down too well. So losing next elections and making unnecessary promises is inseparable part of contemporary politics. But from outside, I could be using the whip, irrespective of who is in power for as long as I am alive.

You are just missing the point. It is about keeping the money where its at. You do those things and that means the people at the top may have to restructure their life.
