magical-musicIn a splurge of glittering but garish display of wealth by India’s nouveau riche elites, corporate and political, many having become obscenely rich via 2-G, CWG, Nrega , criminal land grab and a host of other scams , there are spectacles for the enjoyment of the rich like Formula One Race, followed by a performance by one Lady Gaga ( the more outlandish, the more appreciated ), the current generation avatar of  the Material Girl Madona but without the latter’s raw and almost vulgar overt sexuality, India’s ruling minority joined the international fraternity of the exclusive elite when the Buddha (poor Gautam Buddha) International Circuit, costing $ 250 million, Formula One racing circuit in Greater Noida, near Delhi was inaugurated by India’s tallest Dalit leader Mayawati, while the milling and toiling masses cross poverty line at Rs 32 (less than a dollar) per day in urban India (while we slipped down to 134 among 187 countries in human development index, based on long-term progress in health, education and other indicators, from 119 out of 169 in 2010 )
