Is India really developing?

The World Bank India Development Policy Review report says that the doctors of Tanzania and Indonesia are more competent than India. Indian management graduates earns salary of upto Rs. 1 crore per anum and on the other hand, two-thirds of India's children are not able to read a story. Half of them are unable to solve simple numerical problems. India's share of the world market in manufacturing exports is 1.1 per cent and China's is 6.3 per cent. India is trailing in poverty eradication, power generation, roads and telecommunications. Even Bangladesh has a better record in reducing infant mortality rates. Most of the poor states in Africa is performing better in the poverty management program than some of the Indian states. Now my question to you that Is India really developing?

i really agree with that. India is no longer as advanced as indonesia. In contrast, they have big spirit to be more than advanced, it is proved in such india's movie which is always brave enough to spend much money and take the place of their movie outside India, as like in America, etc. So, india does not develop as we have seen at all. They just have big spirit to be more than advancedm is there anyone who disagree with this?

Like India our country Philippines is also left behind by other Asian countries like Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Japan, Korea, and China. Poverty and lack of opportunities here are always been a problem. Corruption is the main reason why our country is not progressive. I think because India is a big country and overpopulated your government can't support all of your citizen that's why up to now the quality of life this very hard there. Philippines is still striving to be known internationally and some of the Filipinos here trying their luck to work abroad to help their families back home because of lack of opportunities here.

i have been hearing this phrase 'developing country' since i was a child...I am 22 now and this country has not 'developed' yet..But you should never forget the fact that our development is not a small thing.It is really a great thing for a nation with just 62 years of control over its economic and political subjects
