Gareebi hato : From Ecological Wealth to Economic Poverty
“Gareebi hatao” has been an ever popular rhetoric of politicians. Do we really need to remove poverty? Of course we must…! Over the years, the phrase is so sacrosanct that it would be preposterous for someone to challenge its advocacy. And thus, without questioning, our politicians continue to milk its promise. Society believes them and benevolent individuals try to reduce their sufferings. The precise economic definitions of poverty are debated and it’s not hard to see why.
