4: Startup failures are common. It would be nice to compare the data with US startup failures. However, what makes India different is socioeconomic factors. It is difficult for an entrepreneur to come back and reinvent while pressures mount from friends and family to give up. Also it is very hard for entrepreneur to start a "Garage" operation in India. Very few talented people want to work for a no name garage operation. Startups are forced to spend tens of lakhs of rupees on office furniture and space just to attract talent.

true.. it is also a pressure from friends and family to work in a company which is nicely furnished. but some startups dont encourage talent all they expect is completion not the perfection in it and the prerequisites unclear for a product based firm that they want to be built from nothing.
