    I said this:
    which is true as India has been growing faster than Sri Lanka for past decade and hald and thus narrowing the developmental gap. Year 1961 was reference to show that Sri Lanka started with much higher GDP/capita as data for Sri-Lanka (or for most of the countries) before that date is not readily available.

    Ignorance; thy name is @BMD .

    This is 10 day old NEWS:

    Don't project your personality onto others. I have provided reference for most of what I stated and you could ask for reference of any stats that I have not posted with reference is because I though you would have enough intelligence to google terms that would give you proper answers.Like for Afghanistan: Aid provided by US ,alone, to Afghanistan from 2006-15 is more than $100 Billion.http://thediplomat.com/2016/05/afghanistans-addiction-to-foreign-aid/ During this time, cumulative GDP of Afghanistan was $158.8 http://www.tradingeconomics.com/afghanistan/gdp. Thus foreign aid from USA alone constitute 65% of Afghan GDP. Add Aid from other countries, and it would cross 70% of Afghan GDP.

    You also did not quoted me as I would certainly had countered you with facts, and you knew it.

    It has been made clear to you that as per NSSO survey during 11th five year plan (figures published in 12th five year plan), only 0.3% Indians suffer from chronic hunger. Malnutrition in India is not due to unavailability of food, but because of water borne diseases and lack of protein in diet due to cultural reasons.

    This comparison is much more statistically valid than comparing a subcontinent size country to half a city size country that specialize in some specific job due to its location.

    Throwing British settlers out of Zimbabwe is not a variable in Indo-Zimbabwe comparison as India did not had British settlers.

    Egypt got its independence in 1922. Britishers only controlled defence from then on and had minimal effect on economic policies.

    @BMD projecting his personality onto others,again. GDP/capita number for India and China in 1950 were provided in the link attached with post to which he was responding.

    http://www.nationmaster.com/country-info/stats/Economy/GDP-per-capita-in-1950

    GDP/capita for India (1950): $597
    GDP/capita for China (1950): $614

    Chinese GDP/capita is $17 or 2.84% higher than Indian GDP/capita. But unless this is presented in a not-to-scale graphical form, BMD would not accept data.

    Undernutrition

    A lack of adequate breastfeeding leads to malnutrition in infants and children, associated with the deaths of an estimated one million children annually.

    Deriving too much of one's diet from a single source, such as eating almost exclusively corn or rice, can cause malnutrition. This may either be from a lack of education about proper nutrition, or from only having access to a single food source.[50]

    It is not just the total amount of calories that matters but specific nutritional deficiencies such as vitamin A deficiency, iron deficiency or zinc deficiency can also increase risk of death.

    http://www.bhookh.com/hunger_facts.php

    10 million people die every year of chronic hunger and hunger-related diseases. Only eight percent are the victims of hunger caused by high-profile earthquakes, floods, droughts and wars.

    This is natural apparently. How many famines were there under British rule? Because it looks like you have one every year now. Oh, I see, it only counts as one because it's continuous.:blink:

    Screw all that .Does India having starvation or malnourished people absolve the Britishers from causing so many artificial famines and the resultant deaths or the utter ruination of the economy especially the rural economy ?

    What makes you think they were anymore artificial that these ones? Face facts, the British were dealing with 18th and 19th century realities for 200 years and fighting a war and sheltering refugees during 1943. Right now India is not in a war, there are no diabolical weather conditions, they have 21st century technology, transport and comms and international aid, enough money for a space program and exports massive amounts of food, yet still millions of Indians die due to lack of food or related malnutrition.

    Which one is more artificial sir?

    This proves that not only is @BMD is a pathological liar but also an unintelligent one .That he's Irish hardly absolves him of his foolish acts.

    I used to have some respect for him .After this , I have no hesitation in declaring I have no regards for this man.No , sir , None .

    Henceforth , I won't ever take this man as a credible person ever .

    This kind of stupidy happens when you resort to propagana blogs of NGOs for debate points. Most of NGO playing poverty porn over India's hunger cleverly hides that these numbers are for malnourishment which is clinical in nature, not food availability.

    And some which are staffed by mathematically challenged SJWs go overboard and do these kind of stupidity like stating that death due to malnorishment is more than 100% of total deaths.

    Oh yes, it was deliberate. Deliberate in the sense for the profit of the empire. What happens to Indians was not even an after thought. And yes, British didn't set out to kill all Indians because that was neither practical nor profitable. Saying it was not deliberate is like saying we didn't want to kill you, we just wanted to take away all your food for our own good.

    Soviet point is extraneous and irrelevant to this topic.

    This was actually published in 12th five year plan. Chronic hunger due to lack of food afflicts less than 1% of Indian populatiom. Malnourishment problem of India is mainly due to water borne diseases because of lack of clean water supplies, and non-consumption of meat and eggs due to cultural reason.

    Gujarat is one of the most prosperous state of India, yet it has high malnourishment numbers due to low consumption of meat and eggs because of cultural reasons.
