A policeman kills a leopard that is actually attacking a villager, and instead of being felicitated he is booked for the crime of saving a human being at the insistence of some Wildlife Organisations.

A nation where:
* Rice is Rs.40/- per kg and SIM Card is free.
* Where a pizza you have ordered reaches home faster than an ambulance or police, even if you were being murdered or having a heart attack!!!

A nation where: 

* A car loan is charged at 5% but 
Education loan, so necessary for our youth is charged an interest of 12%.

A nation where: 

* Students with 45% get into elite institutions through the quota system, and
* Those with 90% are sent away because of merit.

A nation where: 

* A millionaire buys a cricket team, spending crores instead of donating the money to any charity. 

A nation where: 
* Two IPL teams were auctioned at 3300 crores, 
* Yet we a poor country where millions don't get two square meals per day. 

A country where: 
* Ordinary salary tax payer is punished/fined for error in paying little less in tax, 
* But the IPL collecting thousands of crores has not paid any income tax  
and no body has any issue about it. 

A country where:
* Footwear is sold in AC showrooms, 

* But the vegetables we eat, are sold on the footpath and very often next to garbage dumps.

Its a strange nation we live in, 

* Where assembly complex buildings get ready within a year, while 
* Public bridges, flyovers and sea links take several years even to get off the drawing board, and another decade to be completed.
* We have malls, and sky-rises, with slums forming their boundary wall.

A country where:
* Men and women squat on railway tracks, with no where else to go, while * Watching them from windows, are couples (just 'Two') with three bathrooms and one for the guests.

A country where:
* Politicians who are supposed to serve the people accept money from the same people they are supposed to serve, and then 

* Take a salary from the government for their services to these people.

We are a nation:
* Where we talk in hushed whispers about the corruption in the country and then
* Dig into our pockets to bribe a cop when we are caught cutting a red light.

A country: 

* Where to get small service in Govt. needs a minimum qualification of graduation, but 
* No qualification is required to run the same Govt. (get elected!). 

A country: 
Where our soldiers defending our borders, when jailed by neighbouring  countries,are tortured & not even provided proper food/ facilities, but 
The militants from across the borders when in our jails are served  biryani on demand. 

Think about it & Why can't we do something about it.
