“The increasing no. investors, urban malls, multi-storied buildings, four wheelers, mobile and air travel services, fashion shows, various channels on electronic media and economic growth never represents the real picture of India. The fast growing urban slums and suiciding farmers and landless laborers, untreated HIV positives children, child laborers and children in flesh trade is real inside story of so called glowing India. In these circumstances, working for the grass roots is a real and only process of nation building”, told Lion K.V.R.
