India's Census: Lots Of Cellphones, Too Few Toilets

The results of India's once-in-a-decade census reveal a country of 1.2 billion people where millions have access to the latest technology, but millions more lack sanitation and drinking water.

 

More Indians are entering the middle class as personal wealth is transforming South Asia's economy in the private sector.  Yet the government's ability to provide public services to match that growth still lags behind.  Why would it be that it is easier to get a cell phone than a toilet in India?  What will that mean for development?

Anneliese Sjogren's curator insight, December 10, 2015 10:39 PM

This is really sad, because people should be able to have access to toilets and clean drinking water in their own homes. I hope that the government takes this problem seriously, and makes a lot of sanitation improvements in these poor areas.

Matt Ramsdell's curator insight, December 14, 2015 2:18 PM

With the lack of toilets and the uprising in the use of cell phones in India, the sanitation and living standards of the people of the country are lacking which in turn comes to a place of hazard. With more people moving into the country and from other areas it is causing a massive uprise in the use of technology but government funding and jobs do not create enough money to continuously keep up with the upgrades needed in sanitation and public safety.

Martin Kemp's curator insight, December 17, 2015 3:27 PM

there is a constantly recurring theme here, mass population growth and the government of said country not being able to grow at the same rate to provide simple services to its people

Lauren Heath's curator insight, September 9, 2015 1:00 PM

Mcdonald's is now going to serve breakfast all day starting October 6th. They had been testing this out in certain parts of California. Many customers are very excited for this. This affects me because I enjoy McDonald's breakfast more than the regular lunch/dinner foods. I will like being able to have hash browns when ever I want. I agree with this because sometimes people are hungry for breakfasts at later times of day.  

Courtney Evans's curator insight, September 9, 2015 1:01 PM

McDonald's is starting to serve breakfast all day long. No longer will we have to rush to get breakfast. 

I won't have to wake up as early to get breakfast, but more  people will be eating the unhealthy food all the time, even though they do that already. 

I agree with this because not all people make it to McDonald's in time for breakfast. Now everyone will have time to eat.

Evan Richardson's curator insight, September 9, 2015 1:03 PM

McDonalds will start serving all day breakfast starting October 6th. They started testing this idea out in select locations in California earlier this month. Now the idea will roll out nationwide. This affects me because now I can get McDonalds breakfast anytime I want.
