You've won this weeks prize for most predictable post in response to a positive story coming from India.
>> Now how about offering schooling to every child
It's work in progress. To do this they need money. To get money they need a strong economy. To get a strong economy they need a good technological infrastructure to sell their services to countries that need them.
One of the ways they can achieve this is to build and/or launch their own satellites and prove to the world that they are every bit as competent in this area as the US or China or Russia. The money and expertise that this generates gets fed back into the Country.
>> reducing the poverty in your country
To what ?
In 2005 there were an estimated 400 million people in poverty (approx 37%).
In 1994 there were 45% in poverty
In 2013 there were 269 million (approx 22%).
Clearly poverty is reducing in India.
I believe they've met your criteria since you didn't bother to state what an acceptable level was.
Compare that to the UK where approx 15% are in poverty and the levels have actually increased by 1% between 1994 and 2012.
Sure in terms of people India has more people in poverty but they are actively working to reduce it.
To reduce poverty they need to get money. To get money ... Oh I've already said all that.
>> get rid of the racist caste system
It's not racist. They are all Hindus in the caste system. Sure it's not fair but what the heck has that got to do with you and what's the link between that and satellites ?. How will abolishing one help the other?
Meethinks it's simply the fact that as a nation they are progressing in leaps about bounds with regards to technology that's really bugging you. It's the fact that India can launch things into space while the UK can at best build a high speed railway that's really pissing you off I think.
