    It would be much much greater in today's money.

    Sure, British consultants received it.

    No you don't you have less GDP, ranked 7th, we are 5th and that's with 20 times as many people. And that's with all this aid.

    No excuses, China has as many people as you and is doing far better.

    7 times growth. Nope, Indian GDP grew 6% in last 12 months, UK 2%. But that's with the UK giving aid and India being a recipient.

    It wasn't taken in today's money though, it was taken in yesterday's money and is worth **** all today. Nobody magically adjusted that taken for inflation.

    Keep telling yourself that.

    But in the case you submitted the BBC report mirrored the wording in the two Indian papers.

    And it was converted to assets including infrastructure which helped the British themselves.

    No Indian newspaper publishes op-eds which stereotype a country of 1.3 billion people as savages. Big difference.

    Nope.

    Extra cash-flow helps far more than its raw value due to budget balance and borrowing.

    This hatchet job, which precedes Modi's visit to the US is not even comparable to op-eds found in Pakistani newspapers/ Global times, let alone any Indian one.

    I keep asking for evidence but you present none. And having witnessed your attitude in this thread, you would likely even interpret a complimentary article as hostile if it was written by the British press.
