    Dear we are living in a fools paradise….where we vote for Rs.100, or 5kg oil pack, thats not the fault of these bloody plunders so called democratic leaders but ours…..everyone shouldn’t think for the time being but for the future of their children……if we select our leaders on merit, we won’t confront with such situation, but if we, then the treatment and other things would not be that much costly which one can’t afford…..but people’s representatives always there to help…………..!!
