(A member of the audience asked a question and it was inaudible)

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

Good question. See in this world highest yield of cotton was in this country. In the entire world India is the highest producer of wheat. Our country is the highest producer of milk in the entire world. We are much advanced in growing vegetables. Despite this in our country the farmers are not getting the proper value for their production. What is the reason for this? There is no proper distribution of produce. One can say that the reason for this is the Minister for Agriculture and Farming in the central Government. We are importing sugar at Rs.32 per kilo and exporting sugar at Rs.12 per kilo. This type of corruption is taking place in our country and we are sitting with closed eyes. Is it right you ask yourselves? This is not right. Is it not? That is why we want the Lokpal bill to come up. Even with that they have to do it properly for it to bring results.
See if you continue to fight for this it will happen. Some positive results will come. Some time we'll succeed. We will get positive results. Winning and losing are a normal process. That is not a big deal.
