@Shah: I wish no one give us any more "money".

All We need is facilities of productive life for people, institutions, infrastructure, training centers, agricultural tech & know how, international market share and India off of our back hiding in the bushes to sabotage us.

Money will just bring more corruption, official robberies & thefts, more useless elites, incompetence, dishonesty, distrust and eventual total failure and shutdown.
