Reality check about India ?

While I really can't vouch for the sanctity of some of the statistics quoted in the article noted below, it does present a good overall picture about direction things are/could be headed in, for India.

And, I know that it paints both a picture of despair and opportunity - rightly so. It remains to be seen which of these two gains the upper hand in the long run. I sincerely hope that we are able to capitalize on the opportunity at hand, although it seems to be a really tough thing to do given all the reality on ground.

In Trouble with India, Dr VS Rao Director of BITS Pilani Hyderabad campus may think that Chandrababu Naidu was wrong in considering Economics as more important than politics. Who told Economics is urban and politics is for rural? Bihar gave importance to politics instead of economics and see the state of affairs there. Bhagavat Gita says that you cannot do good somewhere without doing bad somewhere else and vice versa. Naidu did not mean to do bad for rural and intended to do good for urban. In West Bengal Left Front used to give importance to Rural and win all votes there but used to loose seats in Kolkata city. Naidu’s Urban development with subsequent rural benefits was indeed wise thinking. Success is not to be measured by CM designations, elections fought and seats won but by the enormous obstacles which were overcome and there is no doubt that with Economic Focus Chandrababu Naidu is indeed a success which pigeon headed fellows have failed to appreciate.
