Who really speaking is "minding the store" esp. where the R and its fall is concerned? Inflation is once again on the rise, wheat crop in MP, Pb. and Haryana has come in massive tonnes, where do we store 50% of it remains a major question for the States and the Centre. Officialdom knows not the answer, involving the public & civil society could solve 25% of the problem. But no one trusts any one in today's "Mera Bharat Mahan". That is what I am concerned with, today.
