Rupee & common people

Dear Madam,
The rupee has rapidly been going down against the dollar for the last ten years. While Rs 59.44 could get one dollar on May 15, 2014, now one has to spend as much as Rs 83.44 to get one dollar. India has become the third highest country in number of billionaires. But most of us cannot afford to get quality education, health care and nutrition. The common people are like the rupee which is becoming cheaper every day in terms of dollar or in other words their rich counterparts. Some people believe that the rich have more IQ and this creates inequality. Does a person need IQ to select a rich family to be born in?
