Foreign aid is a dangerous drug because India has a much sufficient fund to helps for poor people but corruption is a main problem. Every one wants to earn money nobody thinks about over country. First we have to utilize our resources in right manner than our country does not need foreign aid.

Foreign aid is a necessity for developing countries because these country have not enough sources to built infrastructure or to cope with disaster. Specially for India foreign aid is necessary but excess of it is always harmful as we seen in case of 123 pect. With USA. In excess aid we are not remain in a situation to oppose foreign country decision otherwise they draw their money and our economy or system collapse.

The poor nations usually receive aid from foreign countries in the form of donations. These aid is given to the poor nations who are incapable of raising enough funds for their people. But in my opinion, poor nations should not completely depend on such aids and they should make the effort to develop the nation on their own. In doing so, they will raise a huge capital for their people and will not have to depend on aids from foreign countries.

It is said, if you want to be successful, do not compromise the circumstances but face the dark days until you get rid of it. There fore it is right to get aid from developed countries when developing countries are facing economical, social, political, educational problems etc. It should also be noted, the amount must be utilized at right place and time, otherwise the problems would be, bit by bit, increased instead of decreasing. And never forget, the obtained assistance would be returned so keep every aspect in mind while using resources and do not allow others to interfere.

Foreign aid is dangerous drug. We can have many examples like at first we used to use neem sticks etc for brushing our teeth slowly they introduced teeth powder it got huge response later on they introduced tooth pastes.

Now its feels awkward that no where people are using neem sticks even in villages. We can see many many variations in one brand.

In my opinion, foreign aids is in some aspects, are necessary for the economic growth of the country. No under developing country can sustain without depending the developed countries. Foreign aid must be utilized with wisdom so that we are not getting trapped into a situation like that of Pakistan. India has taken foreign aids many times and now we are capable of providing the same to many other countries. So, the wise use of foreign aid is needed. We've to understand all of the risks which my friends here have mentioned and should act accordingly.

However one cannot get addicted to a drug without the consent of his mind. If his mind is strong enough to say NO to it, it'll be no for ever and will give the good results. :-).

Developing countries must seek help from developed countries at utmost requirement otherwise they would be treated as beggar and in this may loose their identity.

Yea this is true that foreign aid is dangerous. As we know that whenever our country get in trouble we always use to take help from foreign countries. This increases our dependency on foreign countries and reduces the capability of our nation to solve the problems independently.

Foreign aid is a dangerous drug. In the beginning you take it as help but slowly you become addictive to it as its an easy way of money inflow and the next you know is you are in their control. We can understand it by the example of a developed country like the USA and an under developed. It is their way of establishing control on weaker countries.

Here I would like to say as in India if we are the hosting country it is must to be a holding country in this regard. As it is a developing country it needs financial as well as technological aid from foreign countries to build its roots. To support fdi less than 50 %should be allowed and by this foreign means will be well utilized in our development.
