I am an Indian, and I stay in India. India is a country whose diversity and rich heritage and culture is something one has to see for himself to believe!
India has 30% of its people living under the poverty level.
To get an idea of what poverty is all about the following information may help:
* Labor is cheap, one can get a man to drive one around for US$ 75/- per month.
* A family of four can live comfortably at US$ 200/- per month.
* Poverty means that many do not get a square meal every day.
Yes there is chaos, poverty can be seen on the roads, cows do roam around on the street, and India totally shocks the sensibility of most first time visitor from the West, but it is a still a great country to live in.
