      So many Indian have come out because so many Indians are suffering, dear. What's your problem if people sympathise with others? Paid medical bills? Paid food bills? Nonsense. No individual can have the resources to solve the material problems of a w nation, but that doesn't mean one wouldn't try to decipher the real intent of a deadly programme like note bandi and its horrible effects on almost the entire Indian potion. Note bandi is gradually turning out to be a big scandal -- the real intent of it is something different from what is touted as the pious intent.

            Why are you trying to evade the question of the success and failure of policies and programmes? What about note bandi? Why are you running away? Why are you doing "you you you"? Have I done "you you you" in my post, dear?
