    He is a naturalized Indian; became one in 2002. He is otherwise a Belgian.

    He was a member of Sonia Gandhi's Kitchen Cabinet the draconian NAC.

    His work in India include issues like hunger, famine, gender inequality, child health and education, and the NREGA. He had conceptualised and drafted the first version of the NREGA.

    His co-authors include Nobel laureate in economics Amartya Sen, with whom he has written on famine, and Nicholas Stern, with whom he has written on policy reform when market prices are distorted

    How far what he state is true and how far is it mere justification of India?

    There is no doubt that some subsidies while essential, yet the populist subsidies have 'killed' India?
