Today in India lot of ppl R doing much better than the previous generation either due to higher studies or better opportunities. Sports & entertainment industry has catapulted some to instant stardom. Politics is one field where one can attain quick money & fame (neg more than pos though) LOL

yes, it's easier to go from rich to poor....that's what casinos are forWink On the other hand, if Luck favors you, then you can win millions and then the transition from poor to rich gets easier....however, on a general basis, casinos favor my first case.

Gengu.... Hug


Yup you can, but will you actually have the same class? I mean at least at first. It would be quite a feat getting out of the poor mentality in the very first place! Wouldn't it?

Interesting topic. One of the books I have placed in my bathroom library is a collection of New York Times editorial articles called "Class Matters". The premise of the book is that people in USA believe that this is the land of opportunity. People can achieve anything with hard work, and that class structure is not rigid.

However, when New York Times conducted a study they found that class is very relevant in shaping people's education, income, lifestyle and beliefs and they are not as fluid as we believe them to be. The book is an interesting collection of stories from people representing different classes in America from the rich Northeastern WASPS who own their own islands to illegal immigrants working night shifts at diners for low wages and no opportunities.
