Armed To The Teeth

We continue to purchase arms furiously though human development languishes in the country. This editorial lays it out. India was the biggest purchaser of arms last year - $5.7 billion vs $2.2 billion spent by China. We were 127th on the Human Development Index last year and we are 127th this year. And now we hear of the 7 submarines to be bought from France.

Good going.
