New York Times columnist Anand Giridharadas uses his own personal experience with living in both India and The United States to compare the economic, political and cultural climate of the two countries in this altered Amercian Dream speech.

Many individuals immigrate to America in search of prosperity and success -- the speaker and his own family included.
Giridharadas, however, argues that the class system and limited potential for upward mobility on the social and career ladder in the United States no longer makes the country the prime candidate for such a move.

In his altered Amercian Dream speech, the speaker details the upheaval and revolution taking place in India and questions whether the me-centric nature of the country and their improving economic growth makes India a more viable candidate for fulfilling dreams of prosperity.
