now dnt tell me in 2 dollars 800 million indians are living a good life style
The subtitle of Siddhartha Deb’s article, Feast and Famine, in the Boston Review reads, “India Is Growing, But Indians Are Still Starving.” The subtitle is too short. It should have added,”If India had not been growing, a couple of hundred million additional Indians would be starving.” I make this point because the article gives the impression that somehow India’s growth has something to do with the 800 million Indians who have to survive on less than 2 $ a day.

India is home to one-third of the world’s poor, who make up 42 percent of the more than 1 billion Indian people.
Out of India's population, 76 percent — 800 million people — live below the poverty line of $2.50 a day.

India's Growing Economy Doesn't Help Poor:
There, simmering in the oil -- that once cost $3.75, but now costs almost $7 -- are six balls of dough. There used to be eight.
"We make the same amount of money we always have," she told ABC News, stirring her dinner in the Kalkaji slums of New Delhi. "But because expenses are so high, we have to eat less."
Wholesale inflation here is at its highest level in 3½ years -- 7.41 percent -- the government announced today, up from 7 percent a week earlier. That has directly led to higher prices at the markets. Fruits and vegetables are 20 percent more expensive than they were a month ago. In the last year, the prices of some oils have nearly doubled.
That has debilitated some members of the 800 million poor here who live on less than $2 a day. Some eat less, some ration more, all are suffering.
