Every 30th Indian has a computer
Bangalore: In spite of the annual dip in growth rate of personal computers (PCs) in India, the country now boasts of one PC for every 30 of its citizens. PC shipment in India has surpassed 36 million units mark, representing a significant improvement over March 2007 when the country had boasted of one computer for every 50 Indians.

Indian PC market has grown by seven percent in first quarter of 2009 as compared to the fourth quarter of 2008, according to IDC's Asia/Pacific quarterly PC tracker. "Though the Year-on-Year growth rate of India Client PC shipments dropped by 19 percent (First quarter 2009 versus first quarter 2008), this is an improvement over the previous quarter, indicating that the market has perhaps already bottomed out," said Sumanta Mukherjee, Lead Analyst, Computing Products Research, IDC India.

A total of 1.67 million units of Client PCs were shipped during the first quarter of this year. Overall PC shipments to the commercial segment were maintained by demand from the Government, Education and Banking (nationalized banks) segments. The Government sector expects some more spending to happen after the formation of a new government. "With a number of significant government-funded education and e-Governance projects lined up in the coming quarters, a lot will hinge on how quickly the new government settles down to business," says Mukherjee.

You want to say that this country will never be a developed country then I think that you are right. The country in which the people like you are living that country will never grow who even don't know that they are also the part of the same country and listen to me carefully if you can't change the situation then do not try to spoil it and if you don't know that how to respect your country then better to keep your mouth shut and try to understand that you are also the part of the same country. Second if you think that India is not growing as you are expecting then Pls help India to grow but do not put up any blame if you can't help.

5: Is our growth balanced?
How is this compared to the fact we still live in the times when not every Indian gets two square meals a day!

You are correct that the growth is not balanced.
But, remember if every body will get food
easily , there will be no growth.
Take the examples of all communist countries in Europe.
They have now worst condition than India.

Sorry but I think that you are not an Indian. You should feel good that now a days India is becoming more advance as compare to early years where more and more peoples are getting educated and using computers. If you can't appriciate them then you don't have any rights to blame them also.

11: Well it shows we are becoming developed country where as see our politicians who beg votes on the basis of religions and caste.....we should get them hell out of this country...

I am agree with you that now a days India is growing very fast but if you are talking about the politicians then it is our mistakes coz we used to nominate those peoples. If we want that our country should grow then first of all we should get change. If a politician is begging the votes on the basis of religions and casts then its our mistake that we are not able to identify it. We should choose the person who is well educated and having a good background then definaitely out ountry will grow and then you will not have any problem with these politicians.
