While India is one of the fastest-growing economies in the world, 20% (i.e. 1.2 billion people) of the population are considered as extreme poverty with earning less than US$1.25 a day. India is no stranger to income inequality, but the gap is widening further. Survey in 2018 had showed that India's richest 1% held 58% of the country's total wealth. Over 40% of children have chronic malnutrition or being underweight.

Besides high population growth rate is one of major reasons of poverty in India, the caste system has also led to the inequality and disparity. Although the caste system was officially abolished after India's departure from British colony in 1947, many of the prejudices remained. Even if parents have the heart and ability to support their children, it is difficult for the Shudras and Dalits (i.e. the outcastes) to break through the poverty cycle.
