    Why Spanish are going to such far away places in Indian interior areas? Spain is not very rich and there are poor people there. Many European countries are actually poor or have poverty stricken areas. They are currently facing a big problem of illegal migrants coming from Syria, Africa and other places. The Spanish should be helping their own brethren and stop this NGO proselytizing business in India.

      "They had come to see development activities, initiated by the Rural Development Trust run by a group from Spain, in a village in Anantapuramu district." Chandrababu Naidu is a criminal who wouldn't allow local people to develop anything unless they are a s s o c i a t e d with his party. How come he allowed Spanish to develop something in Andra? Something fishy there. He has a lot of foreign connections for illegal money laundering.

        Indian roads are deadliest in the world. It is bound to happen with vehicles driving on footpath, pedestrians walking on roads and no checking of driver skills.

          No less dangerous is complete absence of any functioning lights on the rear of the vehicle. No turn indicators and no break lights. It is impossible to spot in vehicle in time to avoid a collision. This part of the problem is never commented on in cases of accidents. It is a wonder why these vehicles are allowed to be on the roads. What is so difficult to have zero tolerance for these vehicles.
