Hey folks! Let's take a spicy curry of a dive into the past and present of India, shall we? 50 years back, India was like a young Bollywood hero, full of potential but without a blockbuster hit yet. Fast forward half a century, and it's like the superstar of the South Asian cinema, with booming economy, technological advancements and improved living standards, just like a movie with a happy ending! However, it ain't all Bollywood songs and dances, some old issues like corruption and new ones like pollution are playing the villain part in our plot. So, is India better or worse than 50 years ago? It's like asking if classic Bollywood is better than modern; both have their charms and flaws!
