It goes without saying that India offers great opportunities for growth. India not only is a large country in size but it also populates 1.2 Billion people.
At this moment in time the large majority of its inhabitants is still poor but when the growth rate will accelerate expectations are high, even for this large part of the population that did not get the chance to reap the benefits of its burgeoning economy.
The pace of growth however still lags behind due to internal problems of corruption, bad infrastructure and the infamous caste system. On the other hand a lot of positive developments in India are worth mentioning.
In modern market sectors (as the internet) India is one of the leading nations. In Information Technology India has become a world player on a profound level. In the long run I myself have high expectations of India.
To really reap the benefits of the country one has to get rid of old habits and traditions as corruption and the caste system. In short, there is still a long way to go and it will take decades to reach the level India is capable of.
