Modernization and Development can be trouble free, if the leaders of the country are effective.
In India the leaders of the country are not very effective.
From PM down ALL are tainted with corruption.
Whilst simultaneously many are accused of being foreign agents (Sonia Gandhi, MM Singh)
On the other side of the political spectrum are extremist Israel friendly communalists who would be happy to tear up the country, through terrorism and riots to satisfy prurient religious fatalism, obscurantism and dogmatism.
The better option for Indian voters fed up with political dynasties seem to be to vote for an individual rather than the faceless, corrupt party mechanism wheeling and dealing (Congress/BJP).
It is alleged India has the largest number of child sex slaves in the world of 1.2 million, rampant in the bigger cities, run in conjunction with the local mafia linked police.
Therefore it is no surprise that this profoundly mismanaged post-colonial country which still celebrates the Commonwealth Games, as a great new rising power has millions of bonded child laborers.......the reality and spectacle of which harks back many centuries.
You don't need the labor of children to make a nation prosperous.
What is required is government action to judicially invest in INFRASTRUCTURE and INDUSTRY, which generates sufficient jobs for the adults, so that the children do not have to work.
What India also badly needs is a strong family planning regime which curtails the rapid population growth which will surpass China in a few years. India can surpass China in something after all.
Surplus, sub-standard eaters which the mis-organized state cannot support.
But this after all is the nation with the greatest amount of illegal looted cash off shored to secret bank accounts around the world.....and $1.5 trillion for Switzerland alone.
Translation: The Macaulay Anglophile Brown Sahib elite don't believe in their own country, and prefer to keep their illegal money in foreign destinations to the detriment of the country.
India will never be a great power. Instead it should focus on the mundane of cleaning up its filthy, stinking, dusty, dirty, disorganized big cities. It should focus on alleviating the huge masses of poverty stricken people approaching 800 million...........rather than gloating about neo-liberal created $ billionaires who are defacto the new Zamindar class.
