Inequalities

Well,there had been a paucity of posts as i just returned from a trip to Andhra Pradesh(AP), 5 days back. The situation there is very pitiable-the place i went to was a village. Kerala is very developed in comparison with AP. This has got to do mainly with the polity in power. The strength of communism is shown in kerala where the inequalities of income and wealth are kept to the minimum. It truly is an achievement.
The condition is as follows
no proper shelter
lack of electricity
very low wages
environmental externalities
On the whole the state of well being is absent.I heard that there the women are paid just Rs.30 for a days work as compared to a wage not less than 100 in kerala. Moreover it seems that, there, a labourer is willing to work for a whole year for a meager Rs.1800.
I was upset about the whole issue,it has been disturbing me ever since. The absence of education is very much felt.
The riches there are in lands and gold.The agrarian sector appears to be strong founded but i doubt this greatly as how can a sector be called as developing when the main factors-the labour, is inadequately remunerated!

regarding the difference of or why there is a variation or why people dont demand an increase in wage can be mainly attributed to lack of literacy programs implemented by the govt in A.P,whereas in kerala since the low income people are still sticking on to communism which is presently dead,they demand more.In the agrarian sector a private co:(ITC)with a turnover of US$2.6bn has taken the initiative of starting up a web based program namely e-choupal thru which a farmer can access the web portal which will be in the village itself in which the village head(choupal sanchalak)will be in charge.The farmer can get info on the weather report,information on the prices,latest scientific technology etc so by this information the farmer wont be cheated by middlemen who purchase it from them at a very low price and sell it at a higher price and also rely on the report and also enhance their technology.(more info regarding e-choupal can be found in this site www.echoupal.com)

well Mithun, thank you for enlightening me on the e-choupal programme.But i wonder if the farmers(the illiterates)know about this programme and whether they will shift from their traditional methods and place their trust in anything got to do with computers.
