India is really developed nation today. The cities have developed well with good Infrastructure. We have Malls in all the cities we can take pride in. We seem to be competing with the chinese in Gdp. Fast food joints have mushroomed all over the city in the last twenty years. Retirement commun ities have also sprung up. Mentally we are prepared to face the morrow being independent and not wanting to dependent on our children. But We are truly blessed as Indians to have an excellent support system which has not yet entirely dwindled. Labour is still available to a certain extent and quite cheap in our country compared to other developed countries. So it is important on this Labour's Day eve to impart a kind word and give a pat in the back to all our workers who have made our lives easier. . . .
