Cape Town, South Africa, a city roughly the size of Los Angeles, is about to run out of water — completely.

Authorities are warning that as soon as May 11 — which they’ve ominously dubbed “Day Zero” — the drought-stricken city will have to cut off taps to all homes and most businesses, leaving nearly all of the city’s 4 million residents without access to running water.

Residents will then have to go to roughly 200 collection points scattered across the city to collect strictly rationed water. People will be allowed just 25 liters — about 6.5 gallons — of water a day. That’s all the water they’ll have for drinking, bathing, flushing toilets, and washing their hands.

Some services like hospitals, clinics, and schools will be exempt from the cutoff and will continue to have access to running water. But the overwhelming majority of the megacity’s residents will have to work with their tiny daily allotment.

Experts say the possibility of civil unrest is high. South Africa is the most unequal country in the world in terms of income, and Cape Town has the highest murder and robbery rates in the country.

South Africa looks and feels more like a third world country than a developing country. We need to re-examined the world ''industrialized'' again. India, Mexico and Brazil are classified industrialized, but nothing from them screams that for me. India, especially has 58% of indians living below the poverty line. 21% are extremely poor.

India has very extreme income distribution and Brazil has Embraer, which is a pretty big company despite most of their other exports other than aircraft being produce and agricultural goods.

I think to judge industrialization is to look at the representative buildings or neighborhood of a country.  If it is built detailed and up-kept cleanly it means that they have money to spend on housing and leisure.

Judging from the photos, India shouldn't even be classified as a industrialized nation.
What kind of high distribution does India have?
