In what has become an annual tamasha, British government sends "aid" to India and the fiscal conversatives (and other forms of conservatives) in Britain complain. Here's an idea. How about India asking Britain to stop the aid? The time for such matters is long gone! Instead, get the money back from the Swiss banks where the politicians have hidden the sweat and toil of millions of Indians. Notice the extreme efficiency of our political bureaucracy in terms of "receiving" aid and the utter ineptitude in sending a formal request for Swiss assets of corrupt Indians. India does not need alimony any more, Indian children are quite capable of taking care of Mother India.
Even the Egyptians did it in a couple of days. Now that the Swiss boat in sinking, the Indian politician rats will take the cheese elsewhere pretty quick. Then, miraculously, our "official" request will be made correctly and nothing will be found. The question to ask should be "Who has or had Swiss accounts and what was the amount?"
