diversity in Southern Asia can't be compared with any other part of world, India is 3rd world country but if u consider finance our GDP is better than Australia, but then we have kids staying in worse condition then kids in Somalia this is why I said its kind of contextual!
Ahem..Ahem.. Somalia.. now thats comparison of some sort...
I think the social divide in india is just too high... Rich are very rich and poor are really very poor... But the situation is changing.. particularly with Micro-Finance institutions and Givernment is also doing their bit :
1. pulse -polio campaign
2. Sarva-siksha abhiyan
3. Swastyaha Bima yojna ( health insurance)..
And with the groW*H in GDP.. money is also trickling down to the bottom of pyramid.. so there is still no miraculous change.. but still lot better than somalia i guess :) :)...
And when comparing with Australia.. i think GDP per capita is far good a measure.. as population of australia is a minor fraction of indian population.
hmm again the comparison I made is to the either extremes and I still stick that there are kids who are living life in slum in extreme conditions and are equally malnutrition as any kid in Somalia
forget about 70K for a family, lets talk about Rs. 6K/month i.e. Rs 200/day (atleast 2 years back) was sufficient to feed rice to the whole village in Orissa for a day, that indeed r not numbers I made but shared by an NGO.
about micro economy, I agree that works rather our wealth distribution is far better than US, where 98% of wealth is shared between 1% of population. but still we need something as powerful as ITC moment.
leave all this aside I never doubt the potential we have as an economy and as a country, my only point is when it comes to india there is no generic statement! apart from Hum sab bhartiya hain
