I caught up with my friend who lives in the US last eve. The conversation veered towards the issue of quality of life in the US and the relative backwardness of India in this regard. Wiki says, makes me wonder if our government and also our people realize what quality of life is? What the people should demand for a better quality of life and what the govt should be planning well ahead to provide for it's citizens. A lot of things in India which are really bad are taken for granted as part of life but no ones works to change it. What should be the parameters that constitute better quality of life than present for Indians. How can we take it forward. Please cut the crap about spineless corrupt govt etc etc and speak about just the topic.
