India at 60!!!

A night shelter set up by the Municipal Corporation of Delhi becomes a buzzing hive of commerce at 6 pm every day. The doors of Children's Development Bank -- India's only bank chain run by children -- are open for business.
By day, the premises serve as school that also serves midday meals to children. But as the day comes to close, the child-adults swagger in. These are rag-pickers and daily wagers engaged in menial labour -- washing utensils at weddings, for instance.....

Now at the 60 th year of Indian independence such small news makes a smile, leaves some ray of hope in even the most pessimistic Indian... Inspite of its politicians, India excels !!!! three cheers !!!!
