Re: Wrong Priorities

"Surely India should concentrate on trying to feed, educate it's population, "....You could say the same for any nation lofting satellites. The EU, USA, Russia, China all have problems with poverty, homelessness, crime etc

They do, but not on the scale of problems India faces. So maybe, in fact, India should stop dicking about with the traditional trinkets of Western pride (nuclear weapons, space programmes, a country-owned GPS, aircraft carriers etc) and solve problems that matter for its long suffering and under-served people?

I very much doubt Gandhi would approve of these expensive "me too" tokens.
