Poverty is not natural. There are a large number of people who have no ability to learn and think. In developed countries there are strict laws to prevent leakage of nation's wealth to other economic destinations. Wealth of the nation is distributed across the citizen equitably and one would find negligible proportional of people in poverty. In countries that were under colonial rule, after independence the local leaders who occupy the Government act worse than the colonial rulers. They wear the hat of erstwhile rulers, retain the laws, policies and practices to perpetuate the poverty in the society, Stash away the wealth to other destinations. Remain indifferent to plight of the citizen. When the citizen will enjoy the freedom from alien rulers to touch economic prosperity?
