The better the BRIC States are, a better world we’ll have.

Global giants


As and emergent economy, powerful and influenced by size as well as by their population, India, Brazil, Russia and China have challenged themselves by improving their achievements in technology, industry and entrepreneurship.

In first place is India that strides confidently towards the future. Still, more than 300 million of Indians including children are not fortunate. In India as well as in Russia, Brazil, and China there is hunger, illiteracy, and diseases consuming more than 51 per cent of the population.

The BRIC States


China has currently more than 1.3 billion people whereas India has 1.21 billion people and counting. It is supposed it’ll surpass China’s populations by 2025. In addition, China and India made the 40 per cent of the total world population. On the other hand, Brazil and Russia are very large in terms of space more than population itself, thus, changing their goals, choices, and opportunities.

Those four giants shared multiple nationalities, ethnicities, languages and religions, and above all of that all four countries are looking at the same path: Provide education as the main point to succeed in nowadays society.


For their economic growth and their political systems, the BRIC States have developed an important impact on investment in education. China invests a significant amount of its pubic expenditure on education, however, how are being educated the Chinese population? is that how the true education should be? On the other hand, there is Brazil where it is not only a fast growing economy and democracy, but also it is an advanced service industry in Latin America, however, there are a lot of concerns about the Brazilian politics in education. Not everybody has access to it.


Brazil has changed the way of looking at issues such as environmental concerns, reduction of poverty, and education investment, thus, becoming the most powerful economy in South America. India has also seen a significant change since the mid 90’s, and its economy has grown reducing the percentage of poverty by about 10 per cent.

Free and Compulsory Education in India

It is supposed that the political commitment for India is to have free and compulsory education of ALL CHILDREN BETWEEN THE AGES OF 6-14 and the infrastructure to make this possible, however the reality says other things. Millions of people are still without access to water, energy, and education.

There is too much poverty in the world including India. So, according to that I made myself the following question: what do our politicians, leaders and rights defenders, do with our money if is not investing in education, health care, or housing? Where is the free and compulsory education they claim for us? Is really our education improving? or the problem is: are we too many? are we too many people to get our unlimited needs and wants satisfied and covered in a positive ways?

Then, the problem is: OUR RESOURCES ARE NOT BEING WELL DISTRIBUTED. There is too much corruption out there, thus, making only one side of the story happy; they are the rich people, and leaving aside the poor whom are the most of the world population.

Some few are who have access to the government’s aid. The access to education is in some case scarce. There is not an equal distribution of what our countries have.

We’ve been creating every kind of excuses to divide the human race in real and meaningless social classes where who does not have money is with one foot in heaven whereas the other is suffering the unfair distribution of our resources by some few called politicians, and unfortunately, they are who have the power to make work the unfair system they created leaving aside the majority as I pointed it out before.


India has created a globally competitive software industry. It has also improved and made progress in primary education and health care. They’ve built world-class educational institutions.

Furthermore, China and Russia are considered as transition societies. It means they are countries that implement some communist ideas in their way of governing. Also, they have a centrally controlled system to a market economy fact that affect their welfare.

High commitment to equity, however, China has been favoring some schools by improving technical and scientific higher education.

In both countries, China and Russia schooling was traditionally provided by the state, but some reforms have happened between the 80’s and 90’s trying to modernize and transform the educational system.


Governments and world’s governors must lead their people to prosperous and successfully ways of developing knowledge and good work skills to improve the economic and political system, thus, improving and making positive changes in our social, health, and cultural systems as well.

Some few have the power to decide over our dreams, needs, and wants, so it is our politicians responsibility to lead us to a good path of evolving until we develop completely our self-realization.

We are too many people in the world. It is almost impossible to make changes in our cultures where our strong beliefs are almost impossible to put away from our daily coexistence. Our thinking process as a society is stronger than some people ideas of changing. I mean, our thinking process is very well built since our beginning that it is a hard job to change how we act, behave, or think about our own social issues.

Significant inequalities in education, housing, health care, life style, way of getting food, and among others are still all around the world. So, let’s critique together our corrupt and stupid system we live in for the way they are spending and distributing in a WRONG way not only our natural resources, but also our taxes, and dreams.


  1. Very powerful statistics in here. I like the State of Creativity information you posted. You included a lot to think about and for many to engage in a conversation, Santiago.

  2. Reblogged this on The Blue Backpack and commented:
    Thank you to Santiago for following The Blue Backpack. We highly recommend his tribute to Gabriel Garcia Marquez: “By reading his stories, and following his tone, style, passion and way of writing, I could understand the fantastic habit of expressing myself by written words.”
