The definitive guide to South Asian lingo

Definition 1 of 1


An economic term referring to the slow growth rate pegged at around 3.5% at which the Indian economy grew since 1947 to 1991.

Some would call this an oxymoron because the Indian population grew at a staggering average of over 24% during the same period.

(India has a Hindu majority, therefore assuming the majority to be the driving force of the nation.)

See arthapedia.


Professor - Only in 1991 did India come out of its Hindu rate of growth and began to show signs of maturity with opening up of the markets to private and international players.

Student - But Sirji, our population grew faster than most countries during this period. Don't you think we had matured long before?

Professor - LOL, thatandoldontask!
