Those who live or travel there would not disagree that India has an ample amount of two things: heat and poverty. The former is felt nearly all year round from sunrise to sunrise, and the latter, like the sun, is omnipresent. Are parents alone at fault for poverty? Or is the hot climate a culprit?

Some people resort to violence to get what they want and could care less if they hurt or kill—either themselves or others or both—in so doing.  This phenomenon is old, and scholars who have studied such behavior have suggested using economics as a tool to reduce violence.

A war within a country, resulting from a riot or uprising or violence, pits citizens against citizens and bloodies everyone.  It could flare up without warning or simmer forever at low heat.  A war between two nations, on the other hand, kills the nation’s enemies and is unlikely to happen frequently or to last a long time. Take, for instance, India, a fast emerging economic power.
