Manmohan Singh's Speech to the Nation

For the first time after becoming Prime Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh addressed the nation yesterday. The full text of his speech can be found here [] or here []. Of course, both contain typos; I can never understand why our media can't employ competent typists and proofreaders.

His speech was statesmanslike and sincere. My favourite extract:
... Growth is not an end in itself. It is a means to generate employment, banish poverty, hunger and homelessness and improve the standard of living of the mass of our people.

The Hindu has a good article about the speech.
