Grannovator's model and india

Granovators model says about peer effects that the chances of a collective movement depends on the thresholds of different people. so if the thresholds are less and highly distributed,chances of collective movement is more.
So why don't collective changes happen quickly in india...why is it that tipping does not happen fast?
1. huge population? is it a boon or a bane according to the model?
2. high thresholds? or don't we have herd mentality..i think we have low thresholds..
3. good distribution of thresholds..aah i think the problem is here.

in india we have relatively low thresholds but not very low and at the same time we have whole of the population at a level where it cannot hit tipping point...basically a 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7 distribution can achieve tipping point but a 0,1,3,3,3,3,3,3 cannot even though it has a lesser threshold on average.
so all india needs is the missing link to unleash the potential tipping point..te missing 2..
