An Elephant, Not A Tiger

The word elephant is widely used by the Western media when talking about India and The Economist is no different. Their special feature on India has interesting reports on Inter-state disparities, state of the economy and the outlook for the Indian IT industry. I only hope they'll start thinking of new titles for their future stories on India.

As India’s economy grows rapidly, so will the regional disparities. Of 260 SEZs that have so far been fully approved, a big majority are in India’s richest states, including 42 in Tamil Nadu, 38 in Maharashtra and 23 in Gujarat. This trend will exacerbate Indians’ existing grievances and perhaps lead to more conflict. Managing this schism effectively would require enlightened and skilful government, of which India has too little and not much prospect of more. (Link)
