Because Family, Clan, Caste, Locale, etc., in India meet well one's needs - emotional and material. What a State does in the West is done by these social institutions, which the West does not have.
My dear 'Eye Opener', open your eyes that only 16 for One lakh population in India are incarcerated ( Jailed ) where as in the US 700 persons for One lakh people are incarcerated. Not to speak of 5 times of this figure are under regular Police watch in the US.
Women are well protected in India in every way. When we visited a Central Jail, Rajahmundry, as students in 2009, we found that out of 1550 convicts placed in that jail only 10 were women convicts for criminal acts. And another 40 women were convicted for making illegal arrack/liquor. (Arrack making illegally is also a family enterprise in India). Even if we take combined figure 50 as women inmates, percentage of women convicts in the Jail is 3.
Whereas in the US 45 % jail population are Women ! No Gender bias in the US ! women with their needs and children are left to their fate in the US. This kind of leaving their family women as destitute is seen as unmanly on the part of men in India.
Coming to the economic front at least 15 percent of population in the US cannot have accommodation to live and cannot have second meal a day.
Is it not true ? In India with all its bhogus ration cards the people under poverty is shown as 23 % Only ….
( incarceration means apprehension by the Police and placement of a person in Prisons, Jails and also under lock up in a Police station )

Why people are worried about figures of employment of Women out side their houses ? When women's Husbands, children, parents are happy to feed them and keep them happy why one should be worried about their working out side their houses status ? Men - Husbands, parents, Grand parents, even brothers - in India work restlessly to keep women happy. You know 1000 tonnes of Gold is being imported into India every year to please Women !
Only 8% of Delhi's women work", dt. 16.3.13. What do Delhi's working women do? While the image of a working Delhi woman that comes to mind for many is usually that of a BPO or IT worker, the real employment growth story for Delhi's women could be a far less glamorous one - paid domestic work.
