India was and is blessed with undulant natural resources and more importantly a young population. this is what made India rich and this is not a kind of richness British or anyone for that matter can steal from the country in a matter of 200 years.
The major problems India is facing are these:-
We are too communal : Religion, Cast, Creed and Class are more important than anything else here, the “status” is all that matters. India may be the only country where individual states have a rivalry against the other states, and fight for areas of the other.
If such problems are so far away than India will be a Wealthy & Developed Country.
