    A rural Indian spending Rs. 22.50 a day would not be considered poor by a Planning Commission whose Deputy Chairman's foreign trips between May and October last year cost a daily average of Rs. 2.02 lakh

    this austerity is never meant for our leaders. They only add to the cost of living for the common man.

    The laltest is the jamboree being planned by the Civil aviation Minister, for a trip to US to welcome Boeing Dreamliner into Air India fleet. As per latest reports the trip is still on.
