The Hindu: 14,200 adivasi families landless in Kerala

 How poor is the Indian economy for the poor?  That's not all the landless, that's not counting every person but every family, and that's not counting people who own some land and are still dirt poor.  And that's in the state that is used as a model for decent development by some economics departments. 

A small anecdote that speaks to the greater reality: the extremely poor are still here.
