Ramki, good points all. Only part I had disagreed with was bringing "cultural" factors in.

UP-Bihar, and even WB is being a pain to all. The splitting of bihar and UP to form Jh. and U-chal is part of the same strain. I think the economically dynamic (comparitively) Southern states have many more less-alarming options than dynamic states stuck in the north, like Punjab. What about them?

As you said, ultimately one hopes the more "progressive" states consolidate politically to create a political system where they have the clout to goad the laggards to shape up, a la the European Union.
