India v/s London

 It’s been just a month since I moved to London from Mumbai, the place where I was born and brought up. I’m finding it difficult to let go of the Indian in me as I keep comparing everything I see here with what I have seen back in India.

India, known as emerging economic power, has a huge unmanageable population: crowded roads, overcrowded trains, slums dwellers crowding the pavement, people breaking traffic rules every now and then. A country known for having institutes like IIT’s and IIM’s  can’t even ensure that all kids get free and proper education. A country, where even today people die because lack of affordable and proper medication.

London on the other hand the financial hub of world undergoing severe economic crises is still an organised city. A city having organised transport facilities, less crowded streets, lot of greenery and parks for kids, free education and medical facilities for kids,  all possible comforts of life.  

I often wonder why there is so much of differences in the facilities provided. Is it because of the population or is it the inefficiency of govt? Or are the people themselves responsible for the apathy of the country?  As I pen down my thoughts these questions trouble me as I don’t have a proper solution for them.  I just hope one day India too will be known for providing such basic necessities to all its people and someone would write a similar article comparing India with some other “lesser known” place.
