India Striving

Newer Older

Middle class India is currently in a celebratory mood. Word has it India is to be the next economic super power in the world. Yet a 2001 World Resources Indicator report which shows that 2 million of the most wretchedly poor people of the world live in 51 countries, also indicates that almost half of these people live in India and China alone!!!

    Very very powerful photo, such a strong statement. In some ways I think it would have worked better without your text underneath though. As they say, a photo speaks a thousand words, this is certainly one of those cases. You should be very proud of this!

    2 million or billion?

  13. rita banerji 80 months ago | reply

    Million I believe. Billion would the total population of the two countries -- maybe a bit more. But they're talking not about average poverty -- but really people living under inhuman conditions. For that 2 million is a huge number.
