This is the real development. Not the number of billionaires in your state.

Things in Kerala and Tamil Nadu are bit more evenly spread.

You can put a big chunk of the butter in the middle of the bread and eat it. (Gujarat)

Or you can spread the butter throughout the bread and eat it. (Kerala & TN)
