If the Indians are so backward, then explain why so many high tech corporations have moved a lot of R&D centres to India? It's not just for the cheap
labour either, their education systems are outstripping those of the US and other western nations.
True, for the most part their social structure is still way behind the west and they may be viewed as a third world country, but their technology
advances and manufacturing base are now bigger due to the outsourcing of western jobs in the chase for ever bigger profits by western corporations.
Many may still live in abject poverty with no trickle-down of the vast wealth being generated, but is that really any different then the west?
Did you call him wascit? What a wascally bigot you are?!
Everything Indians touch turns to some major balls up. Seen the Commonwealth Games? Great big Delhi Belly fest and new building falling apart. Been on
an aeroplane serviced by Indians? Been to India itself? It’s one colossal toilet bowl.
Westerners go there for cheap labour and only cheap labour and that’s precisely what they get. Many western firms have brought back more critical
operations to their country of origin.
For India to make any true progress they must cull their population to less than 50 million so that the $1 a day most earn can become $20-30 a day.
Then maybe you can talk.
