Agreed we r better of than most african countries, and Australia.. i think if u discount the ethnic population they we all settlers which also include indians..so no comparission of their GDP..
But I always envy the asian tigers.. Korea, japan, Singapore Malasia, thailand... TYhey ar all doing better of than india.. esp japan and Korea...
Thats purely due to horrendous policies of the governments before 90s..
Nehru was a die-hard fan of USSR socialism model.. and kind of hate industries..
Licence Raj... MRTPC acts... FERA Acts.... it was almost strangulating the industrial groW*H in india.. Evrything got nationalized... Govt should concentrate on governing the country.. rather they were running businesses... for which they neither have the competence nor the utility.
So, yup.. we sort of left behind the asian tigers,,, but after 90s we had made a significant progress.. thats why i am able to talk to you inspite pf physical boundaries... :)
So better late than never,, i still believe in vision 2020... by then we would be a serious world power.. lest our younger generations keeos the good work going,
