Way back, soon after college I once got the shock of my life when I found a senior friend, a working professional from Bihar who could not make himself a cup of tea. This was revealed when I asked him to get some tea ready while I brought some breakfast goodies from the downstairs grocer. I came back only to discover a sheepish young man meditating over a pan filled with water – it turned out he couldn’t even light the stove and was afraid the gas cylinder would burst if he tried lighting...

By 2011, it had jumped toa whopping 103 million people, an addition of a massive 21 million – equal to the entire population of Haryana state in 2001. But that’s not the worst of it.

This is what Lord Paul Condon, founder head of the ICC’s anti-corruption and security unit, had to say to London’s Evening Standard.
