I just read about something that makes me proud. I read that India is the undisputed outsourcing powerhouse. In a recent Forbes magazine survey it states that five out of the seven billionaires in the outsourcing industry in the world are in India with a grand total of 20.1 billion U.S. dollars.

I also read something that makes me sad. India is said to have the highest rate of murder in the world. India has earned the notoriety of being the country where maximum number of murders take place in the world, three times more than its neighbor Pakistan and double the figures in the United States. Meanwhile, the number of rape cases were maximum in the U.S., which recorded 93,934 such assaults followed by South Africa 54,926 and India 18,359. Read here.
