Whats the point comparing 2 different nation with 2 different political systems?
I agree china is ahead of india in almost every field....
that doesnt mean India is a looser...
China took the manufacturing path and India took the servicing sector...
Its a different ball game altogether...India is somewhere else and chine is somewhere else...
Yaa u can compare them economically and politically...But u cant downgrade another based on certain aspects...
Thats not a fair thing to do..
If u really wanna compare..then compare India and pakistan...
Both got independence in the same time....
Both had democracy when they started...Look at the current situation??
There are dozens of corrupt politicians in India also.
BBC News - India PM Manmohan Singh: 'Long way to go' on corruption
The only difference is that your military doesn't get involved into politics, thats what PPP wants for Pakistan too but we are not stupid, our Pakistani military are the only ones who will protect the interests of Pakistan.
Ofcourse there is poverty, corruption and the disparity between rich and poor...
But half of india doent have access to electricity? where did u come up with that?...that is not true mate....
What i said or tried to state that when u compare india and pakistan, India is better off...thats alll
Our democracy is in no way perfect, it will get better with time. We can be proud of our democracy when it is able to meet the aspirations of all or most of our people. That is still a far cry. In the meanwhile, we do not need a certificate from Mr Gilani. He will say anything to hide his failings and be allowed to continue in power.
U people elected this PPP government democratically...didnt u?
Now learn to live with it....Or protest in a democratic way and try to bring down the government....
Looking for military to interfere when problems comes up is not a good thing....
military men are not trained to run the country, and truth be told PA doesn't want that job anyway.
wait for your turn to vote, then make your voice heard. patience is a virtue son
'836 mn Indians burn biomass for energy' - Indian Express
India has been ranked lower than its neighbour Pakistan in the United Nation’s multi-dimensional poverty index (MDI) and gender equality index even though it has been able to maintain its 134 rank in overall Human Development Index (HDI). The MDI evaluates deprivations in education, health and standard of living and the households with score of more than one-third of the weighted indicators are listed as multi-dimensionally poor.
The UN Development Programme’s HDI report says that 53.7% of Indians suffer from multi-dimensional poverty as compared to 49.4 % in Pakistan and 57.8% in Bangladesh.
Even in absolute poverty terms, measured for those earning less than $1.25 a day, Pakistan fares better than India. Around 41.6% of Indians in 2005 were earning less than $1.25 a day as compared to 22.6% Pakistanis.
When it comes to gender equality, India has been ranked lower than most of its neighbouring countries including Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. It is primarily on account of India’s adolescent fertility rate, lesser number of women in Parliament and poor participation of women in workforce.
Pak better than India on poverty - Hindustan Times
India is not the right model to follow.
I am tired of the whole India democracy thing, now do not get me wrong, as Citizen in a democracy I would rather live in a democracy than any other system. But Indian democracy is a democracy that gets elections right and rest of the institutions pretty much mediocre or bad.
India does a really bad job of institution building. Did any one of you looked at the young parliamentarians almost all of them are sons and daughters of some Politician. There is no intra-party democracy, a parliamentarian or legislator cannot vote according to his people's interest but rather have to toe the line of Party, else will be expelled from the Party.
India got only first step of Democracy right, elections and transfer of power. Everything else is not worthy of any grand declarations.
Look at population of india...1.2 billion, pakistan's 180 million, our upper middle class & higher class population will eclipse 180 mil figure.
Index forgets the resources available and other constraints that leads to lower points.
Pakistan should try a Malaysian Style Democracy where Islamic Law affects Muslims and not Minorities like Sikhs, Hindus and Christians. Personally I think Malaysian Democracy is better for Pakistan then Indian.
Gilani is just trolling before god-willing he gets hanged.
More people in India lack access to electricity than any other nation, a deficit that must be closed to ensure that expansion of the world’s third-fastest growing major economy is sustained, the International Energy Agency said.
In India, 404 million people don’t have access to the energy needed for lighting, mechanical power, transport and telecommunications, according to an IEA report published today. That’s equivalent to one in three Indians or roughly the population of the U.S. and Mexico combined, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
