A Miracle?

edited February 2013 in Polity & Governance
Do you know an asian country of 30 crore multi-ethnic population, which just like India became independent in the middle of the century, wrecked by the colonial exploitation of centuries, having socio-economic indicators equivalent to haiti and honduras in those times; lifted itself to the ranks of high human development countries (HDI rank 61/187 when China 101 India 134)? I just stumbled upon this.
