When India got independence, one Indian rupee was equal to a US Dollar. What happened was corruption and overpopulation which ruined the country. If it were not for these things, we would have been more developed. Because people can't stop producing children more than what they can afford, instead of having toilets, there is more poverty.

Whoever said this is very correct. If the mad have not ruled over our country we were the most developed

Well, if we had not ruled over you, India would have been millions of "kingdoms" and dynasties. Because the British imposed laws on India as a whole, independence and the building of a nation occurred to the sub continent as two countries. So if there were no Britain, their wouldn't be a united India.

No no no no no not developed at all

India is developing faster than any other country in the world
