India definitely changed in the past 2 decades for economic wealth development and having a quickly growing economy.

Would India ever be mostly middle class to upper class wealthy and just a small percentage of the large population having low income?

At this time, India is economically divided, and has developed a substantial middle class and wealthy upper class that is emerging in prominence. Some areas of India also show the economic wealth rather well.

However, India does also have a substantial percentage of the population having low income too, so poverty exists there too.

The specific areas of India that appeared to benefit the most economically are the regions of Punjab, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, Himachal Pradesh, Goa, and Kerela. For cities, Bangalore, Chennai, Thiruvananthapuram, Mumbai, and Delhi.

India always seemed culturally wealthy to me in terms of culture. The economy is a bit of a different story, but the economy is definitely not entirely bad there and is getting better over time. India does probably have a bright future.

Yes, the cities in India in the fastest motion is Bangalore and Pune, they're also the cleanest and most advanced cities right now in India (with parts of Mumbai able to compete with them). The fastest improving state is Bihar.

You can always tell how fast a place is changing/modernizing by the things they're building.

Here's just Mumbai in India.

Alright well, this is tiring but and they're only getting shorter from here on out. Up until this point all buildings above 144 meter (something like 480 feet). There are about 42 more buildings either under construction or proposed in Mumbai that I know of that I haven't listed.

Mumbai is the second densest urban area in the world in 210 square miles it has a population exceeding 17.3 million with a density of 88,000 people per square mile. This can be attributed to mountains being on two sides and the coast on the other two sides. When including the metropolitan area, which includes the suburbs along the harder to build mountain ranges, the population of Mumbai gets to 22 million people in 426 square miles of land area. In 10 years Mumbai adds 6 million people (it's growth in population) and ties Shanghai, Delhi, Beijing, Guangzhou and only places after Jakarta (7 million) and Karachi (10 million). Reason I bring this up is because that's the reason why so many talls are being built, limited space, increasing in wealth, and huge population growth.

As for buildings above 8 stories, it would take me a year to post all the ones from that height on up for Mumbai.

It's 50-50. India has seen a lot of development. I can tell you from my own eyes, I have seen the changes every decade at an astonishing speed (1988-present). Is there room for more growth? Definitely but there are numerous issues that the Government has to tackle in order for there to be real meaningful change.


As for the development of skyscraper and tall buildings, it's obvious that this is going to be a primary way to house the population. But the rising costs, mean only a certain class of society can purchase such. The poor will have opportunities to grow but the govt has to devote more educational resources. There will always be poor ppl in India but their quality of life will improve drastically in the future hopefully.


The govt is the biggest culprit in not allowing India to transform holistically. Environment, EPA, Law/order, water, agriculture, etc. are all areas of concern that need huge changes in order to allow India to stay on its growth path. Unless, the gov;t trully tackles it, then india will be doomed. Corruption is eating away society. It's so bad.

I think everyone got the hint with your other post based on this article. It's really not surprising when India has 1/5 of the world's population under one nation.

Only time will tell, India has some major internal issues to overcome. I was surprised to learn that there was a significant Maoist(really wtf India? Maoist?! Has no seen what the guy did in China?) insurgency going on in a not so insignificant portion of the country.

Also from what I've read, there's sort of an unofficial caste system in place even though it's been officially abolished? Can anyone confirm that? And last but not least, serious issues with corruption which is typical in developing countries. I hope India goes nowhere but up because for one of the worlds most populous nations to come crashing down would be bad for the rest of the world.

I don't see Caste a major issue. Education and upward mobiity will eventually override such thoughts. Caste is not abolished but using it to discriminate is illegal. As for the Maoist issue, it's there. But it is really not connected to that ideology as one may think. It started of as a Naxalite movement. This consisted of the tribal people and others, namely poor who found serious issues in government and felt it was treating them badly. In fact, corruption is said to be one of the main factors as to why this movement grew. The naxalite movement became a Maoist movement in order to access weapons, money, etc. China is rumored to be helping somewhat behind the scenes. When you are dirt poor, treated poorly, not given resources, inefficient governance, corrupt bureaucrats, etc it spells disaster. The good note, is that the government has finally been tackling this problem with a well rounded strategy. Also, the Maoists aren;t as innocent as some think. They will blow up schools, buildings, etc that help ppl so that they have a base to recruit soldiers. As for development, I think it will get better but not fast as China due to the differences in government. Democracy is a slower route but it ensures more stability in the long run.

You know I do have to wonder why India hasn't deployed the military to help deal with the Insurgency. From everything I've read the government seems content to let local cops and paramilitaries take the lead against the Naxalites.

Good point and I have felt the same. It comes down to a Democractic country using its military against citizens won't look favorably in the eyes of the world. Furthermore, till now it was mainly cops and paramilitary dealing with this issue. They were quite outgunned, outmanned and simply not in a positon to deal with this type of insurgency. The gov't hasn;t deployed the military but it has allowed advisors, heli's and military intel to play a bigger role which has made major inroads into the problem. Even though this group has committed serious acts, I feel sorry for them somewhat. In their eyes, they had to go this path to some degree because of the ineffective law and order situation and corrupt politicans. They have bore the brunt of these problems. So, they took matters in their own hands. With the government paying more attention and doing everything possible to change their plight, the cadres that make up the Maoists are leaving and integrating into society more than ever. The highest ranking Maoist leader recently wants to engage in talks with the gov't because the paramilitary units have killed many top level leaders.

More than anything I hope this serves as a reminder to the gov;t if they continue engaging in corruption and ineffective goverance, ppl will be forced to react in such ways again.

India always appeared culturally wealthy to me in terms of culture compared to economy for plenty of reasons related to food cuisine, film scene, people scene, Indians that moved to other countries, local variation in culture, festivals, unique national ethnic identity, history, some of the architecture sites, temples, some of the scenery, holistic new age spirituality, some Indian home products decorations, souvenirs, and tourism.

I was aware the economy is quite a very different story, but I knew the economy couldn’t be entirely bad, having some redeeming features, and is quickly improving over time. India has one of the fastest growing economies in the world, including for percentage of middle class increasing in this country.

The best wealthiest regions of India are Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, Himachal Pradesh, Punjab, Goa, and Kerala. For wealthiest cities: Bangalore, Chennai, Thiruvananthapuram, Lucknow, Pune, Mumbai, and Delhi. India also has economically poor regions and cities that is a sharp contrast to the wealthier regions+cities.

The historic architecture sites, monuments, and temples also show cultural wealth and are impressive, other than the modern high-rises.

However, that is also good for cities such as Mumbai constructing plenty of unique Dubai style high-rises, especially for what is shown in those photo website links!

There is a paradox in the social, cultural, and economic situation for India. This country shows some good signs of a bright, improving future, but having to solve some of the problems in economic wealth distribution, and government/politics corruption.

India really should be doing so much better for the economy, considering the relative cultural wealth. I am sure India is able to drastically improve all parts of the economy.
