Question comes how does one define a developing nation, is it economic growth? OR per capita income? OR happiness index of citizens? OR increase in education/special skills? or something else?

By the state of it's public toilets! Smile

LOLLOL by that standard USA is a developing nation.. its public toilets are not worth a visit in many towns...LOL

actually some of the best colleges have had the worst toilets in their dorms. true here as well as back there. those are some of the unsavory abiding memories one has of those places. other than that, i think the toilets in europe are universally worse, except for the scandinavian countries. just thought i shld provide some inputs into what could be the next State of the Toilet speech, instead of State of the Union speech, from the president.LOL

LOL.. With nicks like shoo shoo, goo goo, poo poo, chee chee,  this obsession with toilets is ever increasing.. LOLLOL

every developed country is going to have some percentage of its population which is stark poor. similarly every developing nation will have a some percentage of its population that is super rich. just because developed country has some dirt poor people and developing one has some filthy rich...it doesn't really change the categories they fall into.

similar assertions can be made for the health welfare and access of medical aid in both countries. on an average, developed countries will have a better standard of living than a developing country. i feel this rule applies to the state of public toilets as well.

i really do not want to harp on the public toilet system or get stuck on it but wanted to address the comments made about u.s. having filthy public toilets. agreed, one can find a small percentage of public toilets in the u.s. that r filthy. on the contrary, most r filthy in india...only a small percentage will be clean. i think the comment was a generalisation...just like the standard of living in a developed nation is "generally" higher for most as compared to a developing nation.

@qwerty: nice comeback on the nick names crack Smile

I am glad at least some people got it Tongue 

My point was that in any country, basic public facilities are a huge indicator of its developmental status, hence the rather crude but basic example Smile

All the point which i have highlighted, are the cause and consequence of economic growth of a country. if the per capita income of a person is high, it leads to the expansion of his needs, which are fulfilled by resources, now theses resources cannot be used raw, they are processed, and to process them industries and factories are opened up, and this is how the process leads to economic growth. Increase in education or investment in education leads to more number of children going to school, which returns higher yields in the future(i.e they get better jobs, and therefore better income) and thus leads to economic growth.

happiness index is the consequence of economic growth because more the economic growth, more job vacancies will be there, be it the primary sector or the tertiary sector or casual unskilled labour etc.

India is defined as a developing country because we have many natural resources like bauxite, iron ore, copper ore etc. but we have not developed the technology to process these resources and neither does the government have the money which can be invested in such projects.

but since our GDP(gross domestic product) has been rising and more job oppurtunities have opened up, we consider india as a developing nation

...if u go by the studies conducted, they disprove the point u mentioned here.  according to one such study, bangladesh is the top scorer in happiness indexLOL

But here I am only talking about happiness in the context of economic growth. Ofcourse there can be various reasons for happiness and not just money. Maybe you are right about Bangladesh being the happiest country but there can be various reasons for it. Bangladesh does not have face the constant threat from Pakistan, it does not have unstable relations with china(infact they seem to be emerging as friends), we don't get to hear about a bomb blast or a terrorist attack every 2nd day like we do about Jammu and Kashmir.
