    Yep, Rosling’s TED talk was very good. The data visualizations were amazing to say the least. As Lalit says, so check out TED talks.

    Nice connection between improving longevity and relative prosperity in Asia. Drives home the point the moment one gives close attention to anything, even a blade of grass -it becomes an indescribably magnificent perspective in itself.

    That said, I don’t know about the authenticity of the data of other countries, but as far as India is concerned if he relies on the data put out by CSO or other government statistical agencies (I had the opportunity to closely work with one such agency and the bunch of Market Intelligence Inspectors that fill out the questionnaire at random from their desks without visiting the regions personally, yet collecting TA/DA) I would suggest a second guess.
