    Very right, since your coffers are full of dollars, being poor can be just a fictional thought or an assumed state of mind; just for fun.

    So after the joke of rs 12/- meal and rs 33/day in metros, this seems to be the new mantra of khangrass to remove poverty from India. His grandmother, if she actually was one, gave a slogan Garibi hatao in 1971 elections. Now we have this guy stating that its a state of mind. Since he is not a garib, the theoram comes down to two postulates, either he does not know what garibi is or he has no mind.
    I leave it open for members to tell us which of the postulates are correct.

    Caveat: Gharib, in theology, refers to someone who is humble. For eg. Gharib-Nawaz, another name for God/Godmen because they reside where humility lives. The argument is a poor person is more humble than a rich person. Its only in that sense can one say being Gharib is a state of mind.

    not surpisingly, the aam aadmi is correct when says "Power is a state of mind" coz thats exactly what power is !
    while RG baba of course seems to have been talking "high" metaphyscial concepts in a very "high" state of mind :troll:

    humm.. well this formula can be applied to developed countries where even working as waitress can earn you 60-100$ a day.. here children sell their lives working for 5 rupees a day.. I would agree with him if he can stop the child labor.. can make govt schools 1/4th as good as private schools..people don't have to die on streets in cold.

    The more I hear from RG, the more I loathe him. I used to think once that he would be the natural new young, dynamic leader which would ensure India's growth and progress.

    Now I think he's an idiot....God save us from this buffoon if Congress comes back to power! :scared2:

    Either Rahul is clueless of politics, or just doing pseudo-political gossip on the stage in the form of speech.

    No, I mean it is useful only for screwing people and releasing foul-smelling stuff (like what we see regularly from Digvijay Singh and RG).
