The Root Cause

So here’s the Story: 15 Dead Rats land up in the drains of St George’s Hospital in Mumbai. A massive stink ensues (literally), and the hospital staff can’t figure out where the smell is coming from.


The Hospital’s staff tried different methods – Burning Incense sticks, Spraying room refreshers – to ‘Clear the Air’, but to little avail.

And this is exactly the way in which the Indian government deals with our country’s poverty. Every single government measure to tackle Poverty is equivalent to Incense Sticks and Room Fresheners—It smells good for a while, and then the stink is back. The rats remain…

What I think the root cause is: The Lack Of Economic Freedom.
