|The Raj persona||0||04:32, 17 June 2012|
As and Indian who has stayed in a hostel while studying in college I hope I can offer some insight into college conditions.
For one, I think the 300€/month "income" is unrealistically high. There may well be students who get as much, but they will be rather rare indeed. Often this is the salary a student can expect fresh out of college.
I think a more realistic figure would be less than a fifth of the current estimate. Even that can go a long way in India.
I don't think -- even with such a low "income" -- that you should write off Raj as someone who could not afford a tablet, smartphone, or computer. This may just be based on my own experiences, but people who are interested in technology usually save and buy such devices anyway.
