    I'm kinda pleased with their exclusions as neither is in any sort of form and they do not deserve special treatment!! Mind You Sourav is in gr8 form in English County Cricket so maybe he warrants a place but Sachin aint played for ages!!

    Dravid would make an excellent stand-in captain because of his reliability and the way he gets the team through difficult times during a match. However, Saurav Ganguly should definitely return as captain as he is the best India has seen recently. Agreed, his form is poor but the ICC ought to give him a chance and not just let him enter the team as the 16th player.

    yea i agree lol

    India has bn developing fast, you will be so amazzed and proud at indias development (not as fast as china but believe me it is developing)

    only prob and thing i dont like is the fact that the rich are gettn richer and poor pooper ( ive studied economic development so i should kno that this happens but is meant to be short term - but i feel its gettn out of hand, the majority of india is still quite poor )

    do u think india should continue urbanisation - they are losing culture due to this though !

    Alot of india doesnt have electricity or a good suppy of water , but these villages manage fine with their trading and village life, Should they try to modernise what do u think ?

    Modernisation of villages is necessary probably, coz nothing is permanent. People need to change as generations pass but, at the same time they should be conscious to keep up their culture.

    I think it's also fair to say that cultures change over time as well. Some things about keeping your culture are good, but there are usually plenty of bad things too. We need to improve our quality of life, but we also need to improve the way we think and open our minds to other ideas rather than clinging desperately to old ideas that are no longer useful.

    No, they donot manage fine with their trading and village life. Electricity and a steady supply of clean water are essential to living so minus this and you're left with being deprived of your basic rights to live. Many of these villages are fraught with water-borne diseases leading to weaker generations. An unhealthy workforce will, ofcourse, yield lesser income.

    Moreoever, trading doesnot provide rural India with enough income, perhaps because of unfair methods and a lack of proper utilisation of resources. The result being that they are unable to feed all members of their large famililes (large families being another result of poverty). This leads to an increasing severity of issues such as child marriages, child trafficking, prostitution and other crimes.

    So yes, modernisation is necessary but this depends on what you mean by modernisation.

    Firstly, villagers of all ages need to be educated in order to put an end to the above-mentioned issues. Education would also empower the girl child.

    Secondly, since most of these villages yield their income from agricultural activites, proper methods that result in an efficient use of resources must be introduced.

    This would be a way to modernise and thus leading to an improvement in the quality of life and an opening of minds while keeping the culture of India intact.

    You are right. It's the major problem in the state Andhra Pradesh where i come from. Many cotton farmers commit suicides with their entire family giving poison even for the little kids. what a pity but, no one to listen to their problems and some poor families selling their minor children to other Arab countries thinking their children will be happy where there is money and poor children suffering a lot because of mental torchure away from parents in those unknown places.

    No solution till now for such kind of problems and there is no other go for these uneducated parents to take a right decision. I want to do my best in the coming years to control these problems as soon as i am settled with a job.

    I want to suggest even our Indian Friends group members to understand more about the problems in our country and to lead our country as great leaders. No need to spend our full time on these kind of things but any kind of help that we can would count a lot
