We actually cannot compare India with countries like USA, Australia, UK.
I will gave you one example - In USA, a man with a car is a normal thing and even the poorest have it but in India car is still a luxury and not many people get it.
So that is the different. The standard of living of Indians is quite low.
At the moment, the prices of essential commodities are extremely high and the poor people cannot survive in such inflation.
Think of what income people in foreign countries get. Against that income, Rs. 5000 is like nothing.
One of my friend studies in London and his parents send money to him every month but for more assistance, he does the work of distributing newspapers.
He gets 1500 pounds a month, if we convert that into rupees, it is around 1 lakh but still surviving on 1500 pounds in London is very very difficult.
I hope you get the point.
