How viable it is, for a country like India to invest more than 3000 crore (30 billion) rupees, in building a gigantic statue? Is there an assessment about its profitability?

    “Monopoly of violence” and “Westfalian state” are good starters. You might also want to look at the history of democratic and revolutionary organisation in what is now India’s agricultural sectors. – Samuel Russell Oct 31 '18 at 6:59

    While I do understand (and probably share) the criticism to grandiose (bordering on megalomaniac) plans, your question seem to link this project with an eventual "unviabillity" of the whole of India. Given that 3000 crore is slightly more than 0.1% of this years budget and less that the cost of the last ballistic missile submarine bought by the India, proposing a direct causation this statue and the "viability of India" seems rather dubious at best, and a rant at worst. – SJuan76 Oct 31 '18 at 8:41
  • And the second question is completely off-topic; it not only asks us to know to future, but also it is not about "government, policies, etc." – SJuan76 Oct 31 '18 at 8:45
  • @SJuan76 I asked about the economic viability of building a structure like that. Will it be helpful in generating more income or will it be another white elephant. To assume that by building one statue, the country is going to ruins will be foolhardy. – Niteesh Shanbog Oct 31 '18 at 8:47

    @NiteeshShanbog - I have changed the last question because it was about making predictions about the future which is very speculative. Also I have clarified the actual figure, as I am not familiar with the Indian numeric system. – Alexei Nov 2 '18 at 8:30
