What should everyone know about India?
tynamite's avatar I'm fully westernised so I don't know lots about India as it isn't in the news or on tv very often, so all I know is this, and this is probably what everyone else knows as well.

  • India invented mathematics before the Greeks
  • India is no longer colonised by the British Empire.
  • They have good tourist attractions and monuments.
  • Their economy is growing and the country is getting richer, so although they are a less economically developed country, they would be inbetween an LEDC and a MEDC.
  • Most people there haven't seen a white person before, let alone know about your culture or social conventions.
  • Pharmaceutical patents are void there.
  • India is stratified. India is a rich country, but the wealth isn't distributed fairly. You can have rich people living on one side of the road, and people living in a shack without electricity or a sewage system on the other side of the road.
  • If you leave the tourist destinations and move outside the city, you can bribe the police with £100 after shooting someone with a gun in front of one.
  • There's a caste system there, and the lowest caste is the untouchables, and they are seen as a non-person by the certain portion of society, doomed to do the lowest jobs forever.
  • It's a place where there are significantly less freedoms compared to what we in the West are used to, and we are lucky for that.

What's an assertion, and what should I type in?

Compesh is a question and answer (and debate) website, so before you make a debate, you better learn what an assertion is. I suppose you already know what a question is, and that you've typed it in the box. ;)

An assertion, is basically a statement you can make, that is either true or false.

Richer people have better health.

The question for that would be, Do richer people have better health?

And don't forget to make your assertion, match your question.
