It is now 70 years since we left India to its own devices.....since then we have pumped billions and billions of the GB taxpayers money into that country, and seventy years later they still shit in the streets.

They poo on the train tracks too.

I loved Goa but that was just set up as a holiday destination. When you went into poorer zones it was appalling. 0ld ladies of  80 begging in the street. No health service or social care.

It's not the every day Indians Mal. Blame the government. They are in charge of the purse. 

There are no toilets so where else are they to go.

It will do most people good just to travel to these places and see true poverty in its true colours  instead of being  armchair critics.  I think they will feel truly privileged  of their own lifestyle once you have seen  poverty at its worse.

What annoys me is the fact that while millions there live in appalling conditions and awful poverty, many of their wealthy are even more wealthy than ours.  What is more we still send millions in aid, while they have a nuclear bomb programme and a space programme.

I think we still send money because we invaded their country and enslaved them - enslavement costs money in a modern world!!

Many years ago.  Water under the bridge.  We should not be subsidising the nuclear programme and space programme when millions there are on the bread line.
