India Elections 2009

India is facing two big clouds this year:

       – Biggest Global Economic melt down in more than 50 years threatening India’s nascent rise out of poverty

       – Biggest, most confusing & likely most inconclusive election since India’s independence

Though Indian GDP changes and stock market fluctuations have been less severe than many other countries, the confusion about our future has never been more dire.

There is still a lot of optimism and confidence amongst the youth (under 30 in India form more than half the population). But the recent election news and horse trading is quite depressing to watch:

      – Poll fever masks India’s gloom
      – Gandhi relative’s hate video shocks India
      – The beast that is Indian democracy
