    But u didn't tell that in india everything is way cheaper, so even though our salaries are not so similar to those in other countries, we still enjoy thier kind of lifestyle because almost everything is cheaper in india, eg food, clothes, electronics(thanks to china ). This is an important point to be considered. Also rent is wayyyyy cheaper, 50 times cheaper than US and UK. Still you never tell this.

    The combination of protectionist, import-substitution, Fabian socialism, and social democratic-inspired policies governed India for sometime after the end of British rule. The economy was then characterised by extensive regulation, protectionism, public ownership of large monopolies, pervasive corruption and slow growth.[56][57][58] Since 1991, continuing economic liberalisation has moved the country towards a market-based economy.[56][57] By 2008, India had established itself as one of the world's faster-growing economies.
    Ancient and medieval eras
    Indus Valley Civilisation
    The citizens of the Indus Valley Civilisation, a permanent settlement that flourished between 2800 BC and 1800 BC, practised agriculture, domesticated animals, used uniform weights and measures, made tools and weapons, and traded with other cities. Evidence of well-planned streets, a drainage system and water supply reveals their knowledge of urban planning, which included the first-known urban sanitation systems and the existence of a form of municipal government.[59]
    For a continuous duration of nearly 1700 years from the year 1 AD, India is the top most economy constituting 35 to 40% of world GDP.[60]
    West Coast
    Maritime trade was carried out extensively between South India and Southeast and West Asia from early times until around the fourteenth century AD. Both the Malabar and Coromandel Coasts were the sites of important trading centres from as early as the first century BC, used for import and export as well as transit points between the Mediterranean region and southeast Asia.[61] Over time, traders organised themselves into associations which received state patronage. Historians Tapan Raychaudhuri and Irfan Habibclaim this state patronage for overseas trade came to an end by the thirteenth century AD, when it was largely taken over by the local Parsi, Jewish, Syrian Christian and Muslim communities, initially on the Malabar and subsequently on the Coromandel coast.[62]
    Silk Route
    Other scholars suggest trading from India to West Asia and Eastern Europe was active between the 14th and 18th centuries.[63][64][65] During this period, Indian traders settled in Surakhani, a suburb of greater Baku, Azerbaijan. These traders built a Hindu temple, which suggests commerce was active and prosperous for Indians by the 17th century.[66][67][68][69]
    Further north, the Saurashtra and Bengal coasts played an important role in maritime trade, and the Gangetic plains and the Indus valley housed several centres of river-borne commerce. Most overland trade was carried out via the Khyber Passconnecting the Punjab region with Afghanistan and onward to the Middle East and Central Asia.[70]Although many kingdoms and rulers issued coins, barter was prevalent. Villages paid a portion of their agricultural produce as revenue to the rulers, while their craftsmen received a part of the crops at harvest time for their services.[71]

    India's growth is only benefitting the multinational companies.While still the poor workers of India are under paid and working for long tiring hours.
    Chinese workers were doing the same initially,but later they became aware of the greed of multinational companies.Workers demanded fair wages,but refused so went back to their villages,to live a happy and peaceful life.
    I am afraid when people say India is going to be an economic hub.
    What good is it if the citizens of our country can'nt live a happy and peaceful life.

    Low IQ reporting.
    A low Rupee value is good for the indian people and I believe it was a concious decision because of the problems a part of India has with poverty.
    Look at greece in Europe, they are considered more poor than Germany, since they have the same currency as Germany, Greece almost collapsed... If you think it has nothing to do with the high currency value in a low production or low work force / low industrialization then you didnt understand economics.

    • Astrolock
      Astrolock 15 days ago

      +Ying Fu The root problem of india is British and bureaucracy. The bureaucracy of india is lazy, doesn't participate in nations development but rather thinks of its own profit. Some people are trying to change, but think that India has small area and has to sustain the population of 1.3 billion which is still increasing. Good thing for China is that the area is more hence the population is sparse, helping in economy and development. I strongly believe that India should ban more than 2 births.
      Btw China government doesn't support I Dia because it's pressurized due to Pakistan. Hopefully the peace that was before 1000 years gets back and everything becomes right. Many things have to be done, but there's still hope. China is leading in new inventions( I recently heard about the artificial Sun made by China.)

I don't get it, the obviously have resources and manpower to catch up to rich countries, yet it seems to be very slow in catching up to things we have long learned: like, don't use drinking water from the same place your sewage and dead people float in.Accomondate growing population, fair law enforcement( turning a blind eye to women who were raped, because they don't have the same standing as men do)

    Here is the real Truth about India before 1947 was a superpower. The Silver Rupee with King George head was at par with the British Pound. India was a industrialize economic country with hundreds of mills producing exports, in garments, steel, manufacture Ford cars, GM trucks, Jeeps,, everything Indians wanted. Three Indians name Nehru, Gandhi, Jinnah louse up for 320 million by preaching India will be free by "Kicking British Raj we all will be free." Next day after August 15. 1947. Indian rupee lost his value. Was worthless. All US & British companies were nationalized - ordered to get out. Even Exon Mobile who were looking to discover oil were told to pack up and get lost. India lost 70 years by kicking the British out, instead of negotiating a gradual transfer of power. That was the greatest blunders created by Nehru to kick India backward. The biggest joke Gandhi tells to make India economic power all Indians must spin the wheel to make Khadi clothes. Now Modi goes around the world "Come, Make in India." One day India a capitalist, next day a socialist will a ration card standing in the queue for rice. I watched my mother after Independence. That was a sad time. Many were leaving India for good.

      India should Watch Venezuela. Once the richest oil-producing country turned to Socialism becomes a failed State when everything from banks to producing power was nationalized. If India really wants to catch with China, Singapore, America to open to Free Market Economy. That is the only way to kill corruption.
