The Statue of Unity : The World's Tallest Statue

The Statue of Unity

The 'Statue of Unity' is a statue of Indian statesman and founding father 'Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel' (1875–1950) in the Narmada district of Gujarat, India. It is the world's tallest statue, with a height of 182 metres (597 ft) or about two times as tall as the Statue of Liberty (including the pedestal). The statue is on a river island facing the Narmada Dam (also called the Sardar Sarovar dam) near Rajpipla, 100 kilometres (62 mi) southeast of the city of Vadodara.
The monument and its surroundings occupy more than 2 hectares (4.9 acres), and are surrounded by a 12 km2 (4.6 sq mi; 3,000 acres) artificial lake. It was built by Larsen & Toubro, who received the contract for ₹2,989 crore (US$420 million) for the design, construction and maintenance in October 2014. The construction was started on 31 October 2014 and completed in mid-October 2018. It was designed by Indian sculptor Ram V. Sutar and was dedicated by Indian Prime Minister ‘Narendra Modi’ on 31 October 2018, the 143rd anniversary of Patel's birth.
Now if we gone through the socioeconomic status of Indian Citizen as on 2017-18, we found as follows :
·         As we known that ‘’Per capita income ( PCI ) or average income measures the average income earned per person in a given area in a specified year. It is calculated by dividing the area's total income ( GDP ) by its total population.’’
·         The per capita income ( Total national income (GDP) divided by total population ) at current price during 2017-18 is estimated to have attained a level of Rs 1,12,835 as showed the provisional estimates of annual income, 2017-18 released by the Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation ( MOSPI ).
·         The Current GDP of India as follows : ( India is on 6th position )
  1. USA - 19154
  2. CHINA - 11915
  3. JAPAN - 4896
  4. GERMANY - 3616
  5. UK - 2631
  6. INDIA - 2498
  7. FRANCE - 2546
  8. BRAZIL - 1975
  9. ITALY - 1911
  10. CANADA - 1617
Now, I think the picture is clear to all that where we are ( What is our GDP / PCI ) & what is our level of expenditure.
