Wealthy countries? Have you ever been to India? I have. Here's a flavour of what to expect:
Extreme, grinding poverty. Crippled beggars in the street, people who live in tents by the side of the road, children running from car to car in the gridlocked, potholed roads attempting to make eye contact so they can beg for money. We don't have anything like this, not even in the darkest, poorest places in the UK. For us, poverty is not having a DVD player. For them, it's sending your children to beg in the street. There is no comparison.
Yes, it has an IT industry. The people who work for it are, by comparison to their compatriots, fabulously wealthy. When I was there my driver was paid 4000 rupees a month - roughly £55. The most junior people I was hiring were going to earn between 600K a year - about £600 a month.
How do I know this? I've worked there for the IT industry in India.
So don't give me that shit about them being a wealthy country. Go find an article about Windows to whine about.
