This question has always bothered me.
.
Today I saw a report about 2 different pedigree lines which make up most of Indian populace. In south mostly Dravidians and in North are Indo-Europeans/Central Asians/Aryans.
.
I would not link directly, the social issues of North and South based on these ancestoral lines.
.
But there must be some reasons for the economic disparity or I should say economic upliftment, and technological advancement, between North&East and South&West.
.
  • In technology we can see that IISc, ISRO, HAL, DRDO, all are located in South. There is no reputed Scientific Institute of this level, anywhere in North.
  • IT revolution started from Bangalore
  • Most R&D centers, and also Multinational industries which do not export products, also have units in South&West only.
  • I dont know about others, but most of the scientists I hear of, have south Indian names.
  • Majority of country's GDP comes from these 6-7 states.

I have myself noticed the kind of scientific fervour in South students which is absent in North students. And I am talking about general students, not the creamy layer. Now, this can be the reason as well as the consequence of difference in scientific environment.
.
Other reason could be the pedigree lines.
.
I dont think politicians in North can be blamed because IMO Southern politicians are as crooked as anywhere else.
.
What I can only see is the growth of this difference. And still cannot comprehend why is it so.
.
Your views are welcome.

1. Read the report. All Indians have North-South in them.

2. Read on agglomeration/cluster development. Why are there more cars in Delhi than any other city ? Why are there more small scale industries in Delhi ? Why is agricultural yield so high in Punjab ? Why is Tamil Nadu turning into an Automotive hub ?

3. IQ doesn't equate with Success. There are just 2 South Indians in the top 20 Indian billionaires(2007-8) list. Punjab, Haryana, Delhi have very high pci.

4. Cultural traits and personal ambitions matter significantly. Do you have any data on the demographics of the institutions ?
