I suspect that the reason for this is that India is a very poor nation, overall, and can't find a "society" to give them the money.

It is our responsibility as Indians to bring about an effective equivalent of 'Medicare' or whatever (as it is the responsibility of US citizens to ensure that their Medicare becomes a truly effective and equitable system for all US inhabitants).

Wouldn't "equitable" be equivalent to everyone paying their own way? I don't have a problem with Medicare, but the last word I would use to describe it is "equitable". Call it what it is, socialism.
