With just a couple of days left for Mother’s Day, a new global ranking of the best and worst places to be a mother, has revealed India as a tough place for mothers.

The State of the World’s Mothers’ report for 2015 by ‘Save the Children’ ranked India at a dismal 140, taking into consideration four different indicators: Under-five mortality rate, expected number of years of formal schooling, the gross national income per capita and participation of women in government.

The report found that children living in Delhi were subject to widespread inequality in health provisions for the poorest and the richest.

Robert Clay, vice-president for global health at Save the Children said, “It’s a tale of two cities: the wealthy who are doing well and then the marginalized who are largely living in slum-like conditions.”

“It’s the survival of the richest, they have the advantage and the poor are not getting access to essential services,” he further added.

As per the annual score card released by Save the Children foundation analyzing the world’s best places to be a mother, Norway tops the list beating all the top most countries of the world.

On the other hand, India has slipped to 140th position from last year’s 137th and stands behind the countries like Zimbabwe, Bangladesh and Iraq.
