Shorthand Dictation 80 Words per minute with outline, 10 Minutes Test 19

19Dear Prime Minister,

            I write this letter to you because you seem to be concerned about the poor and the marginalized, and you have mentioned about giving high priority to access of drinking water and eradication of illiteracy among others as your primary concerns. I write to you because AI thinks you will honestly try to take Gandhi’s dream of India forward. It has been deferred too long.

            Gandhi had said I shall work for an India in which the poorest shall feel that it is their country, in whose working they have an effective voice, an India in which there is no high class or low class of people an India in which all communities will live in harmony, woman will enjoy the same rights as men. This is the India of my dream. Further he had emphasized “
In a free India all interests not in conflict with the interests of the dumb millions would be scrupulously respected”

            If after 50 years of development experience, we are still talking of access to drinking water and primary wrong.Centralised planning, centralized control, top-down development has resulted in large scale corrupted and crime and has eroded the people’

confidence in their govt. Economic l9beratlisation initiated by the previous finance minister Manmohan Singh, and supported by his Prime minister, P.V. Narasimha Rao, has at least liberated the industrial sector to some extent and I am glad to see that you propose to continue with that policy. But that about the liberalization that is so desperately required in the rural sector?  The licences and controls that the rural poor have to cope with have left them poorer. Let me mention some concrete examples.

 191           The self Employed women’s association, SEWA, as it is popularly called, surveyed some villages in cent of the families in these villages live below the poverty line. The advises and others dependent on non timber forest resources survive by making products of bamboo, cane and other fiber, raw materials they obtain from the forests they have protected. These advises have to get license at all every step to buy the raw material, to transport and sell it.

            According to SEWA’s report these womenh have to pay 2000 to 3000 per cent more than paper mills pay for the same forest produce! The govt. monopoly actually robs the poor to subsidies the richy the adivasi women also tap gum which also requires a license. They are obliged to sell it to the forest Corporation where they get one quarter the market price. When these women were operating illegality they could earn Rs. 25 per day. But now as SEWA member they wish to operates legally, but their earnings have dropped to Rs. 12 per day, with longer working hours, and with the additional help of children who have toleave school to provide the necessary supportive labor. Why must these products be sold only to govt. And why should there be licenses at every step, which means more corruption and crime?

The forest Department has a large number of nurseries all over the country for raising saplings for their own use a d for selling. Studies have shown that the cost of a sapling raised by the Forest Department is at least 5 times higher than a sapling raised buy a private source economy. The self Employed women’s association, SEWA, as it is popularly called, surveyed some villages in cent of the families in these villages live below the poverty line. The advises and others dependent on non timber forest resources survive by making products of bamboo, cane and other fiber, raw materials they obtain from the forests they have protected. These advises have to get license at all every step to buy the raw material, to transport and sell it. After state administration seems to be unwilling we are told for such sharing of information because there are too many skeletons to hide in each cupboard. After much agitation the state govt. has agreed to the right to examine documents relevant to development projects but they are not willing to five the right for photocopying a photocopied document can be used to take legal action.
