That is seriously so out of context.
But then you never had any pretensions to being the brightest spark on the block.
Dawn is a credible paper, but thats besides the point. It has just reported what is the reality. It can easily be confirmed from other independent sources that India has monumental poverty. Consider the suicide rates amongst the farmers and others.
The point that I really wanted to make was the sort of misplaced priorities that the countries of that region are following. And that is what is keeping the region poor. One of the largest Military, and now the F1. For what? Just to keep up with Joneses?
@BM: You are right. However, the difference between the UK and India is the vast numbers of poor people in India that outnumber the well off. You can see them in any major Indian city sleeping and basically spending their whole lives on the sidewalk.
