India Must Deal With Poverty Before It's Too Late

Re: Children Today—Citizens Tomorrow!

To the Editor:

The article talks about the harsh reality which people chose to cloak under the slogans and banners of "India Shining."

I am sure most people who rejoice because of the economic boom and the stock markets' upward trends then confuse the profiting minority with the suffering majority.

These are facts we need to reckon with before the situation becomes beyond salvage.
