I just saw some stats on Indian household estimates for 2007. I think these were prepared by Ogilvy & Mather in 2005. It says there are approx 200 million households in India. Of these 5.2 million are very rich, 75.5 million are in the consuming class, 81.7 million are climbers, 20.2 million are aspirants and 16.5 million are destitutes.

If the last three are combined you have a pyramid shape but if you keep them separate the figure resembles a person with a small head, a major pot belly and thin legs.
