The Indian economy

The Indian economy is going in the right direction say the Government and their financial wizards. They've got stock market figures and other calculations to support their claim. When however I see a man having to use a sidewalk to rest his tired body, it troubles me. It troubles me that in a country where skyscrapers of glass and steel are being raised everywhere, there are human beings who cannot afford a place called home.

So then, do we measure financial health by numbers that tell you how the rich are getting richer? Or should we put a scale to how well this country looks after its poor?

Very good post Manoj. I also wonder how in the hell they can say "India Shining" based on the upper class, or upper-middle class?
