Response from a friend- India

Dear Friends

It is very sad indeed to hear of such tragedy. It is common in my part of India where poor farmers ending their lives to escape poverty, debt and humiliation. Same situation exists with the people at the lower end of poverty.

Our country that boasts of best IT investments, super defense capability etc. cannot contain poverty. It is not shortage of resources, but lack of political will & good governance.

Hence it is a call for the church to be on the side of the poor and mobilize all efforts & resources to address their immediate & long term needs of the poor at micro level.

Sometimes we are guilty of spending too much time in formulating systems and procedures that looks good to us and fail to be there where it is hurting the poorest of the poor.

It is a continuous challenge to do right things rather than doing things right.

May God grant us wisdom, understanding and empowerment to change.
