    Every thing given by NATURE was made into BUSINESS by the West. India NEVER charged anything to EDUCATE. Gynaan and Vigynan are knowledge to be distributed free. The British started to DESTROY this concept after the so called "LORD" Macaulay tabled his report of India back just 185 years back (1830) !!! Politics is MADE A PROFITABLE BUSINESS by every one....The first and foremost DEGREE one must have in this Profession is "BE A GOONDA FIRST".....All this should stop. Consumerism of the West has consumed the Consumer. Look at the U.S.A nd Greece. The entire West THRIVES on the EAST...like parasites.
