*SMACKS* Indian National Census. Besides prostitutes and beggars make a lot more money.

They Indian Census forgot Executive Blog Assistants in that "economically non-productive" category.

Thanks, cindy. I was about to *SMACK* the lot of them.

*ducks*

Don't shoot the messenger. I just report 'em.

*smacks* Jeff just because.

As a housewife, I find time between soap operas and bon-bons to play internet poker. I've won over $72,000 this year. I believe that's more than Indias' GNP.

What category do census takers fall in?

SW, useless government unemployed employees.

India, with 1.2 billion people, has evolved some traditions that we in the West would find disconcerting.

"The tears of a stranger are just water" is a well known maxim. It means that while you might be expected to look after your kin, you owe nothing to the poor beggar on the street.
