It is not like that foreign aids are exactly brought form foreign. Think then how the price of medicines will increase because of Taxes. Exactly what is happening is that the chemical formulas are adopted from foreign companies but these all are made in India. What we need to do is that choose the right alternatives if we do not feel comfortable with the medicines. As these allopathic aids never reduce their compositions because of high effectivity.

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.

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.

Even I too agree with my friends that foreign aid is a dangerous drug. I had a perfect example for it which our country faces as we all know that first Britisher's came to our country for a business purpose slowly they developed their network here and finally the established their government here and given a statement that "SUN NEVER SETS IN BRITISH EMPORIUM". This clearly shows how dangerous foreign aid is.

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.

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.

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.

In my opinion, foreign aid is more dangerous than its short-term benefit. A foreign aid is usually provided to countries which currently are facing a crisis. In order to overcome the crisis the aid can be helpful if the termss negotiated are fair. If the terms at the outset are risky then the aid can prove to be more dangerous than the crisis.

I agree with my friends that foreign aid is harmful. A small help from other country is necessary for the development so that there is sharing of technology and improvement in our technology and economy. But relying on foreign aid is dangerous. Because it can make us dependent on other country and the country will become weak.

If we get raw materials and successful technological ideas from foreign countries then we will only be beneficial. I think aiding doesn't mean money alone. At the same time we should move with their ideas, get their flaws and release a new product for our benefit. This is what US, China, Japan do among themselves.
