Shame on Indian Govt. Year after year hundreds of people die due to Govt's non action. People should take Govt to court, do you think it only rains in India. Every
Country of the world have harnessed the rain water to their advantage to irrigate
the fields during drought times. India has ample water given by God but Indian
Govt wastes it and people die of thirst or hunger.'Jinhain Naaz Hai Hind Per Voh

Flooding which is controllable.'jinay Naaz hai hind per voh kahan hain'
