Is India really a "third world" country?

Take the example of New Orleans vs. Mumbai

Inches of rain in New Orleans due to hurricane Katrina... 18

Inches of rain in Mumbai (July 27th).... 37.1

Population of New Orleans... 484,674

Population of Mumbai.... 12,622,500

Deaths in New Orleans within 48 hours of Katrina...100

Deaths in mumbai within 48hours of rain.. 37

Number of people to be evacuated in New Orleans... entire city..wohh

Number of people evacuated in Mumbai...10,000

Cases of shooting and violence in New Orleans...Countless

Cases of shooting and violence in Mumbai.. NONE

Time taken for US army to reach New Orleans... 48hours

Time taken for Indian Army and Navy to reach Mumbai...12hours


48 hours later...New Orleans is still waiting for relief, army and electricity

48 hours later. Mumbai is back on its feet and is business is as usual's most developed nation

India...third world country..

Now, you judge for yourself...Is India really a third world country??
