'Sharp drop' in India poverty

'Sharp drop' in India poverty | Poverty Assignment by_ Bryan_Tan | Scoop.it
Poverty in India has dropped sharply thanks to increased spending on rural welfare programmes, the country's Planning Commission says.

 

KV: Government intervention has decrease poverty in rural India. More people are getting out of poverty in rural areas than urban areas. Programs funded by the government to help the poor has significantly changed many lives. People are given education, welfare, and proper sanitation. Once assistance is provided to the poor, the welfare and well being drastically changes for the better. As the Indian government prospers because of new business ventures, some of the increased revenue should be set aside to help many regions that are affected by poverty.

Bryan Tan's insight:

After reading this article, I am convinced that the gorverment in India know and want to do something about their currebt situation of being one of the poorest state in the world. Poepla are treated better given benefits, edeucation,welfare of the citizens and hygiene are all being taken care of by the gorverment. The gorvement starts improving their ties with other countries in the world helping it to gain more advantage. This helps to decrease the rate of poverty in India.

This article says that the number of people suffering from poverty in India has decreased. I'm glad that the government is finally doing something to help the less fortunate.The government is finally doing their job by looking over the welfare of people. It's touching just by the thought of lesser people suffering from poverty. Just increased spending on rural welfare programmes is able to make a 7.4% decrease percentage of people living in poverty. I think they should continue having these welfare programmes and they should also spend more time and money caring for the less fortunate. I wonder if other countries will attempt to do the same thing as India's government so as to decrease the number of people suffering from poverty in their own country.

La pobreza es el càncer de la sociedad humana, ojalà sea posible reducirla, aunque soy escèptico, el dinero es muy sabroso y los pocos que lo tienen no lo sueltan, de allì las revoluciones, guerras ect.

Poverty in rural India has declined drastically, and much faster then in urban India. The decline is due to increased spending on rural welfare programmes, and rural poverty fell by 8% while urban poverty fell by 4.8%. I think this is great that the government is finally taking action and helping their people, instead of just 'sweeping them under the rug' in a way and pretending the issue isnt there.

Bryan Tan's insight:

 After reading this article, i understand that people in the poorer are suffering from illness but they are unable to pay for the expensive price of the medical care and they usually tend to ignore their illness. Lack of knowledge about medical issues led to the increase poor poeple dieing. Another problems these people face is the lack of acess to the medical facilities and the docor to be self sufficient. Although other ruler occasionaly sent dooctors and medical practicioners to their country it is suallt not enough as the surrounding and the lack of medicine avaible in their country.

Bryan Tan's insight:

After reading this article, i am convinced that poverty in a country is mostly link to the water shortage in a country.A farmer living in that part of india will feel despondent as the lifelivehood of them is consistantly affected by the dry spell occuring thoughout their country. They are helpless and cannot do anything as it is beyond their countrol. Not only will their have a lesser havast, the quality of the soybeans will also be affected, reseulting in lesser purchase.

In India, Poverty and Lack of Education Are Associated With Men's Physical and Sexual Abuse of Their Wives

The Guttmacher Institute is a nonprofit organization focused on sexual and reproductive health research, policy analysis and public education.
Bryan Tan's insight:

After reading this article, I am convinced that these incidents are happening in India as the poeple there are not educated. Physical abused of their own wifes just proves that uneducated men in india are morally not well and this is probably due to the fact that they are too poor to be sent to a school to get proper education. This cause their ignorance and uncaring attitude in the modern world society. They cause harm to the poeple around them without a second thought and this behaviour will be pass on to their children as the cycle of not getting educated repeats again.
