After the threefold increase of salaries of MPs it disheartens one to see a report like “After hike, Indian MP gets 13 times less pay than US lawmaker!”.

How can one compare the pay structure of somebody in the US with somebody in India. Can one do a more sensible calculation by taking into account the relative per capita income in the two countries. The Per Capita income of US is 37,500 USD. In India it is 2,880 USD. Now does the writer of the article wish to compare?

How much can one and how much will one twist the statistics to suit one’s need.

All the article writer wanted was some attention and he is getting plenty of it despite being downright stupid.
