But what comes out from the recent data is the extent of decline in calorie intake during 2005-10, the highest in any five-year period. Per capita calorie intake in rural areas was 2,266 in 1972-73, 2,149 in 1999-2000, 2,047 in 2004-05 and 1,929 in 2009-10 on comparable basis. Calorie intake in urban areas was 2,107 in 1972-73, 2,156 in 1999-2000, 2,020 in 2004-05 and 1,908 in 2009-10. That is, while calorie intake declined by 117 calories per capita between 1972-73 and 1999-2000 in rural areas, it fell by 220 calories per capita in the last 10 years.

It is now sufficiently clear that despite improved incomes and increased production, not only per capita availability but also intake of most food items declined during the last decade. Nor is there any reason to take solace in the fact that this decline is occurring only in case of cereals and pulses and is a sign of diet diversification because of increasing prosperity. Whatever may be the answer to this puzzle, the fact remains that issues of food and hunger do remain a challenge for the Indian economy. This has implications for the biggest challenge facing the country: that of the severe malnutrition which remains stubbornly resistant to any change.

for a field laborer? it's certainly not good. but the point is, caloric intake is DECLINING among poors. that's not a good indicator; that's the kind of thing you see in drought-stricken parts of africa or something.

i know...I'm agreeing with you that India will eventually beat out the NOWAGs, but it will take time and it's not as if the masses will be any better off for it

To be fair though, they expect a LOT of people to rise up out of poverty over the next 10-15 years. We're talking hundred of millions

I'm saying that you're overstating the size of the middle class. Or at least the "middle class" that has our standard of living. Dude they live like shit out there. No air conditioning anywhere you go, everything stinks, everything gets done incompetently, late, etc. There's no way 1/4th of the population has transcended all that and is living the American dream. Not yet at least...

I'm just saying there's a huge difference between destitute and middle class. Middle class here is fuckin around on their ipad, driving the minivan to take kids to softball practice, cooking a couple T-bones on the BBQ. In India, that kind of lifestyle is not what one would define as middle class and is certainly not enjoyed by 25% of the population. Not even close.

They haven't had their first real, large scale war yet.

As their global influence becomes stronger, it's going to be inevitable that they'll have to invest in large scale military infrastructure. All superpowers do.

What major country could they possibly go to war with? China's the only one, and even there the issues of contention seem quite minor - nobody cares about Aksai Chin, or Tibet - and even the worry over China's relations with Pakistan will fade away if Indo-Pak relations begin to thaw. That process already seems to be happening.

Some of its corporations will become globally competitive, but other than that Indians don't really care to get involved with the rest of the world's problems. Non-alignment is still popular among the intelligentsia and will remain so as long as there are major internal issues that take precedence (i.e., poverty, Kashmir, Pakistan, Maoist rebellions). Plus India has never perceived itself as a world power in a political sense - the Guptas and Mughals, though they traded with the West, were never very outward looking like the Europeans. Their status resides in being more of a major cultural power.

This is different from China, which has always seen itself as preeminent both politically and culturally, and views its recent success as a restoration to a rightful world order. China will be the greater power because they want it more.

Latin America and Africa was an imperative of Cold War politics. With India, there's no ideology to fight for, and no great threat from any outside power for them to bother with this type of stuff. There's enough dirt-cheap labor within India if they need people to pick bananas or whatever.

By cultural I mean that Indians take pride in being at the crossroads of three or four major world religions, or their music, history, architecture, etc. They want to be recognized as having a place alongside China, US, and the major European powers, but that doesn't translate into a desire to export their equivalent of blue jeans and rock n'roll. At most, their cultural expansion via Bollywood or cricket is only for the diaspora.
