    Where with the GST money go? will there be better roads, educational insitutions and hospitals? Just spent 2 weeks in Southern India, now returning to Europa via Singapore. So much talk of Swatch Bharat? in India yet putrid conditions exist with no Civic sense displa by people, yet in SIngapore the Indians follow the rules here and the place is so clean even in Little India. It shows that Indians dont care about their back yard.

        I live in U S and also at some risk due to current geopolitical situation in U S A, When person decides to immigrate to other nations around the world Indian government cannot do much to protect/defend them which is only natural, and it same other way around for citizens of other countries visiting or migrating to India. My fellow citizens who migrated from India please work on more into becoming valuable to cause of America our adopted nation rather than crying about being victim as immigrant. Do not other community than Indians have struggle of their own? To expect Indian government in protecting can be counterproductive as American see Indians see American legal system against them which is not entirely true. Bad things do happen to people for any reason , the best way to attempt to minimize is try not to make that communal or race based but as struggle among people.
