Some govt. economist told me that asian people work alot and so people here don't have time to pub club like the west. I asked him what about chinese and japanese pubbing clubbing on which he didn't say anything. I told him that different people can have different perspectives and that I'm not interested in judging (whats right and wrong). However, I think that particularly for single guys and women in general the reasons are different and not because they don't have time because asians work alot as he says. I told him that in my experience for single guys and women in general there's alot of difference between here and where I've stayed in the west.
Recently, I had shared "Amartya Sen: snakes and ladders" http://blogs.ft.com/beyond-brics/2011/12/24/amartya-sen-playing-sna... on the Chief Marketing Officer - India https://www.facebook.com/cmoindia Facebook page and on the Privacy and Security Community https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/110327950402925051569/110327950402925... Google+ page. The article mentions "The India-China comparisons tend to concentrate mostly on the horse race of relative rates of overall economic growth, rather than their comparative performance on the respective use of the fruits of economic growth."
Also, "To take a classic contrast – that between China and India – India may be now growing almost as fast as China does, but China seems to be making much greater use of this opportunity for development purposes. For example, government expenditure on health care in China is nearly five times that in India. China does, of course, have a larger population and a higher per-capita income than India, but even in relative terms, China spends a much higher proportion of its GDP in governmental expenditure on health care (more than 50 per cent higher than India as a percentage of GDP)."
Also, "Even though India is now growing nearly as rapidly as China in terms of GDP, the gap between the two countries is growing – rather than diminishing – in terms of values of most social indicators of living standards, such as life expectancy, infant mortality rate, mean years of schooling, the coverage of immunization."
Also, "However, it is not merely China, but even contrasted with our neighbours in South Asia, India’s relative position has persistently declined over the last two decades, compared with Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, and even Bhutan. Bangladesh, which has overtaken India in nearly all the social indicator, may be blessed with an activist NGO movement that is a world beater, and also Bangladeshi women seemed to have been more mobilized for the cause of economic and social and political change in a way that India has not been able to match."
Over the years, I've heard from several people ranging from low to high class in India that they don't have time to exercise. I wish for them that they can make time for their health and fitness because I think that it's our health and fitness that critically makes our lives well. I also wish that people learn better on things and that for which I also share free online resources including from the best universities on http://www.slateandchalk.net/learnonline.aspx.
Also, I had recently posted on my page's wall a few things which I'm sharing here:
