I just had to share this. It seems impossible. But according to this article by Moni Basu over at CNN the top 16 richest people in India have as much wealth as the bottom 600 million.
Another set of numbers from the same article states that the richest 10 percent of high wealth people in India own 80 percent of the money.
Another interesting statistic from Basu's article is that only 11 percent of Indian's own a refrigerator.
The final insight I will share is the half of India's population is under 25 years of age.
