The story is no different and maybe more horrible in India, if you add-up corruption, loot of public resources, black-money, etc.. to the list of problems. Like many other developing countries, India have invested (black + white) much more in US (and its associated safe heavens) than US (only official) has invested in India.

India needs zero-tolerance towards goons, criminals, land grabbers, communal freelancers, rapists, corrupt, anti socials, opportunistic, indecent and fascist feudalistic forces.
