Nexatar is cancer drug.. just to clarify that we are not talking about over the counter medicines.
Its the same with everything , there are special govt. stores which poor people can buy medicines from which are a lot cheaper than the ones sold
Just to clarify.. Bucks are dollars not Rupee. One Indian Rupee is 0.01649 USD.
8,880.00 INR = 146.426 USD but you need to understand that average pay in India is much much less than average pay in US and In India minimum wage is
0.2 US$/hour (20 US cents per hour)
Which is why Medicines in India is a lot cheaper and affordable, Besides people have the tendency to give lower lower income to officials to avoid
taxes and get BPL benefits...
The numbers you give as comparison a drug costs between to US and India is useless. GBT per capita 2013 in US was 53,143 and in India 1,499.
Actually not ,the cost of Drugs is considerably a lot lower or sometimes even given free for people who are low income groups . And most people in
India may deliberately show low income to the officials to get these special privileges , many who are officially below the poverty line aren't
really in poverty.
In India over 20% are living below national poverty line and many in extreme poverty, 67% are living in poverty. 93 million people in India are slum
In last 10 years more than 200 million people where elevated from poverty and as time goes on more will come out as well...
The caste system is still very alive in India, old traditions do not die easily. Untouchables so called Dalits are still forced to clean human
excrements and about 17% of jobs are held by these Dalits. Daily income for poor people in India is between 26 to 32 Rs.
Dalits are relegated to the bottom of the caste hierarchy. In parts of India, Dalit communities are still denied access to community water
sources, served tea in separate cups, barred from entering shops, excluded from temples, and prevented from taking part in community religious and
This is the reason i tell you to not follow the nonsense portrayed in the media. These supposed lower caste people are given special benefits while
looking for employment or education . Which of course your media will never talk about . Nobody in India cares about caste system anymore .These
untouchables are not forced to do anything if they want to study and make a living they are free to do so . Frankly i wish i was an untouchable the
kind of benefits i would get while looking for a govt. job and money for education would be great. Its actually the higher caste people who are going
to poverty because of this lopsided system. But who cares about them anyway . Folks in the west are apparently taught the BS that everyone rich is
higher caste and everyone poor is lower caste ...
This upper class is very
annoyed because they don´t find servants so easily anymore as servants now want more paid and importance of education for them has gotten in a
Professional urban families often have a “maid”, usually a young migrant woman, who does everything from dusting to child care. Wealthier
homes have an entourage stretching from sweeper to housekeeper. Gauri Singh, who runs a maid’s agency in Gurgaon, a city on Delhi’s outskirts,
says households with a monthly income of 100,000 rupees ($1,850) or more typically have at least one live-in servant.
Do you have servants ? What about complaining about issue "Hard to find servants, because they want better pay and education?" That's reality in the
inequity country of India.
Upper class is annoyed ? lol the kind of things which you people talk about makes me laugh . First of all , everyone has servants that includes the
middle class and the lower middle class . These servants often work at multiple homes making a decent income i also happened to give my servants break
fast or lunch depending on when she comes to work , btw am from lower middle class . Back when my family was in the city we used to give free
breakfast and coffee to the entire family and cloths every time some festival came to our servants..
