It seemed like such a great idea then. When the Prime Minister announced in November last that the money set aside by the government to take care of the really poor, will now be paid directly to them in cash, I had cried out, ‘well done, sirjee!’ aloud. Even though I knew he could not hear me.
It is called the ‘Future We Want’, but forget about wanting, no one has admitted to even liking anything it has to offer! I am talking about the outcome document that was signed by government honchos from countries—both rich and poor, developed and developing--at the end of the Rio+20 summit last month.
