    75 % - 80-% of the population lives in rural india.

    Metros account for only 5 % population.

    Over 60 % of india depends on agriculture or agro based occupation for its livelihood and its contribution to GDP is only 30 %

    Some interesting figures to play around to realize the potential of a average metro guy :)

    You are right though, long way to go to realize India's full potential.

    Right. Cows don't kill. Neither do 99.999% of the 70,000,000+ gun owners in the United States. We are a fundamentally different civilization. I'm certainlly not suggesting that citizen gun ownership is the right model for a country like India. If you ever want to learn more about this, a highly suggested book is "To Keep and Bear Arms: Origins of an Anglo-American Right".
    What works in one civilization might not work in another. India still has some 'backwardness issues' to iron out but thankfully, are making great strides in this regard.

    Anyway, as far as my interest in names from 2005 and 2006, the reason I use that is its very, very simple criteria to understand, since I'd guess that less than 5% of domainers, Indian or otherwise, even begin to understand keyword quality. The types of names I'm interested in buying were almost entirely registered during landrush- or shortly thereafter- and have mostly been renewed since that time.

    Pretty sure your conclusions are way, way off here.
    As Ace pointed out- we have 1/4 the population and our GDP is 4.5X higher. Also, wealth stratification is significantly worse in India.

    I don't see how large-household income in a handful of tiny urban neighborhoods in India are comparable to your 'average US guy'. That isn't even comparing apples to oranges. It's comparing apples to aardvarks.

    Lastly, Mumbais isn't the most expensive office market in the world. Londons West End, Hong Kongs Central Business District and Tokyos Inner-Central Business District are all more expensive on a psf basis- and Mumbai's position on 'the list' has fluctuated significantly. It went from 4th to 7th, back to 4th.

    I do think a lot of Indians aren't being very objective when it comes to the poverty that exists in that country, the significantly lower wages, etc. For whatever reasons- ego, inferiority complex or whatever- there are some Indians who are sensitive about this and fast to mention Nariman Point while ignoring the fact that basically the rest of the country bears no parity with that tiny, tiny, tiny area (which I've seen first hand and, while nice, still isn't nearly as impressive as Manhattan, Paris or the like) .

    Until those people become outnumbered by the objective ones- who acknowledge economic reality and propose solutions to fix it- Indias almost limitless potential will be hampered.

    My examples were to drive a point in your so called "expert at domaining" brain, that people in metros and people here on inforum are capable of paying way over your expectations for a name if they were driven.

    I remember making a 25,000 $ offer for a co.in that was rejected ( another indian, no email exchanges, direct phone negotiation).

    Reflects why you hope landrush domains will be sold cheap by indians.

    We dont take loans that we are incapable of paying. Hell our culture looks down on taking loans in the first place.


    I feel like I'm educating a kid. What a waste of time trying to give you a better picture of people here on inforum.

    Few good domain sales and some people think they've conquered the world. Stick to your domaining habits and i'll stick to my business. Got better things to do in life than educate people who think a vast majority of urban india has inferiority complex.

    Best luck.

    You're creating strawmen here. Where in this thread have I suggested I "hope landrush domains will be sold cheap by Indians?"

    No where. I'm capable of paying a fair market price and I'd wager a years pay I'm certainly capable of outbidding you.

    Well, yeah. You're going to have an entirely different set of problems in a country where the average annual income is about $900 compared to a country where the average income is $43,000. I mean, one average American makes what 47 average Indians do... Makes sense that 'borrowing money' isn't going to be too hot in a place that's qualified for Grameen banking.

    I'll give you a pass since English probably isn't your first language, but I haven't said (nor do I think) the 'vast majority of Urban India has an inferiority complex". I definitely do think that a lot of Indians- urban, rural or otherwise- have a COLOSSAL inferiority complex when it come to economics, and this is understandable. India is a country rising from its past, into the modern world. This is why even the slightest mention of poverty in India brings about howls of Nariman Point, when anyone with a brain and a working pair of eyeballs can see what sort of mammoth poverty issues larger India has on it's plate... I mean, we're still dealing with a country where 7,500,000 people die every year of malnutrition and twice as many underweight children as sub-Saharan Africa!

    People can't fix problems if they're preoccupied soothing their ego by pretending they don't exist. Yes, India has massive poverty problems- the types of problems that most of the west sorted out long ago.

    Want to realize your potential? Acknowledge them and repair them. Don't keep pretending that Nariman Point is emblematic of India at large. It may be a great symbol of the potential India has, but the rest of the country looks nothing like that tiny little enclave.

    Please dont lecture on economics, you dont have a major in it. Even if you did, I meet more C level executives in MNC's who give me a realistic picture of their sectors and economies, so I have enough knowledge on that. Also don't lecture on how we should repair our economic issues when Obama is making trips to india looking for 50,000 jobs for US men.

    I speak pointblank, if you can comprehend it properly. People here on inforum are people who have decent amount of money in the bank, and property that if liquidated can sum up to a few million dollars. People from rural india are not here and hence not relevant.

    This story explains everything..
    ****************************

    Nan-in, a Japanese master during the Meiji era (1868-1912), received a university professor who came to inquire about Zen.

    Nan-in served tea. He poured his visitor's cup full, and then kept on pouring.

    The professor watched the overflow until he no longer could restrain himself. "It is overfull. No more will go in!"

    "Like this cup," Nan-in said, "you are full of your own opinions and speculations. How can I show you Zen unless you first empty your cup?"

    You apparently need significant lecturing and education on economics of your own country, since the outlook you've expressed here borders on delusional. Obama was on a trade mission to India. Americans are still employing significantly more Indians than Indians are employing Americans. Our trade imbalance is hefty and when you adjust for wage parity (someone in India doing a job, someone in the US doing that same job), it's enormous. He knows that in the global economy, economic opportunities exist in many places, including India. While I'm not a big Obama fan, I absolutely support him traveling *anywhere* to facilitate trade.

    Further, you cannot legitimately keep writing off 'rural India' as if they don't count. Too many private home skyscrapers by the Mukesh Amabani's of India, built within eyeshot of roving cows and starving children, and Indias free market economy will be beaten down very, very quickly, no matter how 'sophisticated' Urban India fancies itself to be.

    Those people aren't relevant on this forum, but they're damn relevant to India, to the point that they still define India in the eyes of the world.

    Not to the point, disregarded.

    PEOPLE HERE ON INFORUM ARE FINANCIAL STRONG AND HENCE YOU CANNOT/ SHOULD NOT DISRESPECT THEM by asking them to show the house they live in to see if their opinion matters.

    PS : I wont even care to reply now.

    The average Indian lives on less than $2 per day - P.A. Infultruth.

    (seriously. Lets try to avoid the whole "my country is better than your country" thing, if for no reason other than one side is going to lose that debate, badly)

    Do you know that more than half the World Lives on Less Than $2 a Day?
    —including 97 percent in Uganda, 80 percent in Nicaragua, 66 percent in Pakistan, and 47 percent in China
    link

    The data may not be current, but still proves a point.
    Americans constitute 5% of the world's population but consume 24% of the world's energy. If the whole world consumed at the same rate as the US, four complete planets the size of the Earth would be required.

    Imagine the ecological disaster that would follow if everyone follows the American way?

    This thread is turning into disrespecting nations and citizens.

    Lets all stop the buck here and let dman get his self respect by naming his domain sales if he has any.

    He's bragged about it for a while now.
