  1. if actually measured... half of India is under poverty line.. for none is able to fulfill dreams in one lifetime

  2. agree with u dear.... but rules r rule.... what can be done,,,,???

    ( "if i could...." my new post )

  3. @Irfanuddin- What i think is one more category should be there other than BPL and APL because one earning rs 56/day is not rich in any way...

  4. agree wid u... in fact we r being ruled by the rules framed during Britishers....or just after there farewell... these has to be amended, sooner than later.

  5. And good thing is now people becoming aware and soon we can see changes in the system.. Lets hope..

  6. we need to increase awareness

  7. what is the procedure for getting a bpl card?

  8. dear now people know but still dont want to change the system
