It's a good show. We too from here should reciprocate at least to show the groups who are in the act of creating communal calamities in the country. Better if they can make this a subject in the Parliament as well.

its disgustful to accept gifts from the already improvised community who have been neglected, when does reciprocity come. Despite all the hardship the North faced none from the South or governing affluent class think of contributing to poor in the Northern districts.
