Before Britain arrived in India, the vast sub-continent was a collection of petty states

which frequently warred with each other. When India took independence over British

rule in 1947, they left behind them a backward, poverty-stricken, agricultural nat

archy. Therefore, India?s stability must be looked at before it plunges headfirst into the

free market. There are many things that affect the stability of a country, but none affect

it so much as it?s government, court system, and police.

One of the most curious things about India is that although it is a Third World country,

it has a functioning democracy. Most Third World countries (such as in Africa) are
