… for 1 rupee? A joke apparently.
Here’s the cruel underbelly of modern India: Villagers in Rajasthan’s Tonk district are paid (Re.) 1 per day for work under the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGS), and a state minister justifies it as consistent with the work done.
This news item made me sick. Apparently there’s no limit to greed, corruption, and cruelty. 😦
