I give below a link to an outstanding article written by TCA Srinivasa Raghavan in the Business Standard. In private, many of us talk about this. Publicly, this has now been stated.
Perhaps this should have been said two decades ago. Anyway, at least now it is being said. For the first time that I can think of, a responsible columnist in a responsible news paper has suggested a course of action that makes eminent sense. Even if the figures are off the mark, the thrust of the arguement can not be faulted.
It is our tax money that keeps this farce going with bizarre happenings. The political class with its own vested interests (read commission on every expense incurred in the valley) is not likely to accept this. A beginning however has to be made to at least think about this course of action and I request all of you to spread this message as widely as possible.
I look forward to hearing any other points of view on this subject as well.
