An open letter from a digitally-excluded, poor man to those who make policies and are part of those 1% of Indians who own almost 50% of the country's assets
Dear fellow Indians, I am Ramu and my wife’s name is Sita. I have two children—Prakash and Savitri. We live in Doudi, a small village located in a corner of Kesla, in Hoshangabad district of Madhya Pradesh. We are actually one of those 100 families who were displaced because of the Tawa dam that was constructed nearby. Actually, I would like to address this letter to those who are parliamentarians, members of legislative assembly, members of panchayat and all those who are part of those 1% of Indians who own almost 50% of the country’s assets. I would also like to address those who make policies and always make sure that there are announcements of crores of rupees for the poorest of the poor, like me and my family.
