INTROUCTION:

I am going to talk about the notion « IDEA OF PROGRESS ». The idea of progress can be defined as an improvement – a technical, scientific or social advance which contributes to making the world a better place. Progress implies changes, some evolution from an old order to a new order. If we talk about India, we can say it is a land of contrast, being a traditional land but also a modern country. That's is why it is interesting to wonder to what extent India can be called a country on the march?

In the first part we will see that India is an underdeveloped country, as well as in a second part that India is a country on the march.

1) « TRADITIONAL INDIA » : AN UNDERDEVELOPED COUNTRY

« Incredible India »:

- overpopulated,

- too many inhabitants,

- too many languages,

- high rate literacy,

- high poverty,

- inequality between habitants with a rigid cast system

A) INEQUALITIES BETWEEN MEN AND WOMEN

- male dominated

- girls --> second class citizen

"why girls in India are being killed"

- domination of men society

- aborted if a girl

- only give birth to a boy

- B) INEQUALITIES BETWEEN INDIANS CITIZENS

« Castes and outcastes »

- the BRAHMANS (the top class)

- to the UNTOUCHABLES or DALITS (the lowest class) --> impure, can’t have personal relation of the over caste

2) «INDIA IS ON THE MARCH »: A MODERN COUNTRY

- process of rapid economic development

« Changing India » in the book

- to go in India by himself to make up his own mind about the country

o couples can divorce,

o untouchables or Dalits children can go to school...

CONCLUSION:

To sum up, in my mind, despite the economic and the mentality revolution of India it's not a developped country. While the cast system still works in India, the country can't be regarded as a country on the march because there are too social inequalities. The gap between rich and poor is so vast and even if the untouchables children can go to school now, they are always considerate as impure people and it isn't acceptable. This is not a democratic nation.
