Why are Indian children still dying of poverty?

There was an AP story about infanticide in India, mostly young girls, and the question attached was "why, with rising prosperity?" One question immediately answered, the "rising prosperity" is mostly the Rich getting Richer, much like the Class War they "upper class elites" declared in America long long ago and are intensifying now. Having the top economic level, the "1 percenters" getting an even larger share of even an expanding economy means those in the 80% who have less income than it takes to actually survive, will have even less. A classic example of How Deregulated Free Market Capital works to destroy the poor for the profit of the very richest. And now, it's taking its bloody horrid toll on the children of the poor PEOPLE.
