So many of my friends feel entitled to chase their dreams, procreate and introduce ever more people into the second most populous country in the world bursting at the seams. They feel entitled to buy 2, 3 or even more cars and multiple houses, because they want to live life king size like westerners do.

They are armed with nationalist pride that they are also capable of being rich and living the American dream right here in India, when more than half the country lives in poverty and shits on railway tracks.
