Roads to Prosperity? A case to ponder...
@ Redhakhol: These children rush to each slowing vehicle on the National Highway to sell forest/orchard fruits that fetch them peanuts. They risk their lives and miss childhood. The same products are available in city markets at high prices (5 to 20 times more) but these primary producers don't get the benefit.
But we keep building more and more roads in the name of 'Development'. Which gap are these highways bridging and whose development are they bringing?
