Quotes of India things

"A quarter of the world's truly destitute (300 million people each subsisting on less than a $1 a day) live in India, and the majority of those, in urban slum colonies"

"16.2 percent of India's population are Dalits."

"Every hour, two Dalits are assaulted, three Dalit women are raped, two Dalits murdered and two Dalit houses burned, yet only 1 percent of those who commit the crimes against Dalits are ever convicted."

Just a few things to think about when India comes to mind...which for me is pretty frequently.
