India In Numbers

The latest issue of India Today is full of numbers about India and its people.

Don't have a clue as to how they came up these numbers.. Lots of comparison with US & China.. but thats like comparing Apples and Oranges.

Independence Day Issue of India Today
Some numbers:
Median Age of Indians- 24.9 : By some accounts, India has the youngest work force and that is one of its BIG asset.
86% have access to clean water: I guess we need to better how the 'access to clean water' is defined. But I find it difficult to believe that this number is correct.
India held 301 elections: Democracy is the backbone of India.. Though at time it feels India has too many of those noisy elections.

And lot more in the magazine..
