$22 Billion worth of treasure found in Indian Temple

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM, India What should India, rising but still plagued by poverty, do with a newly discovered treasure of gold coins, statues and jewels in the vault of a Hindu temple, valued at some $22 billion?

Crazy!

They should leave it there to respect the sanctity of their relig... LOL, sorry, couldn't say that without laughing.

The government of India should use the money for public services and research.

Why? It was found on private land owned by the former royal family. It has nothing to do with the government.

And give it to the Indian government? If you do that, the money will disappear faster than you can say 'temple treasure'.

And for the rest of you re: poverty - it's an admirable suggestion, but wealth distribution is just as popular in India as in the States. That is to say, it ain't gonna happen, boss

Shiiiiiiiit, it has a lot to do with the government! The government of India would then take its 'hard-earned' share through taxation. Or, it can fall back on its extensive land-reform precedents and redistribute to achieve 'equity' for all the poor people around the area. A now there are judges to rule on who gets to keep the money...? While you're at it, try telling China that its theft of intellectual property rights violates your rights.

This isn't America. India doesn't work like that.

Yeah man. Although, things have been improving in the motherland over the last decade or so. Job and business opportunities are actually better there than here in the states although salaries aren't comparable to western countries...yet. Ever been?
