This link gives access to one of the most lucid, yet very scientific and factual presentations I have come across, on a complex “socio-economic-political” issue world over – ENGLISH – FDI in multi-brand retail Dangerous for India Aug
I have been in the health care field for long and understand that – A substance that kills instantly or quickly is called poison. But – that which kills slowly over a long period, by progressively weakening the system is called a drug. But this awareness does not prevent the diabolical attraction towards drugs for the seekers of instant relief instead of cure. And it is compulsively and irresistibly very attractive to those in the line – who benefit financially … directly or indirectly from the sale of drugs.
Similarly, anything that robs people’s lives or livelihood “very slowly” is considered intelligent, legal, modern and progressive. The marketing strategy (by the vested interests) of FDI in Retail is as simple in it’s appearance at the protagonist’s end – as is cruel and diabolical at the receiver’s end. In short, the powerful and rich want to convince the weak and poor that – “Dying is inevitable for all”. If it is voluntary, it is painless – but if you resist, it will be painful. Killing is a sin only if it is done too fast. But when done very slowly, it is help.
The presentation by Mr. Sekhar Swamy is quite enlightening and his efforts positively commendable … in short, worth going through by all.
