    A car with bullet holes is seen during a test at the headquarters of Brazil's Dupont laboratory in Paulinia, 120 km (75 miles) southwest of Sao Paulo April 13, 2012. Armor plating isn't just for aristocrats anymore as Brazil grapples with high rates of kidnapping, murder and robbery. DuPont, widely known as a chemical maker, introduced its bulletproof Kevlar fiber and SentryGlas car kit Armura in 2008 to middle class Brazilian families with Chevrolets, Hondas and even low-cost Kias.

    A pedestrian walks past a homeless man sleeping next to his possessions, which includes a bicycle, in a tunnel located underneath a main road in central Beijing January 16, 2012. Economic reforms over the past three decades may have lifted millions out of grinding poverty and helped fuel a rising middle class in China, but those effects have not been felt equally across the country leading to one of the most glaring social problems - the growing gap between rich and poor.

    A worker adjusts a display of Mont Blanc watches at the luxury-goods company's new store in Beijing January 5, 2012. High-end penmaker Montblanc has opened its largest store in China to capitalise on the surging growth of Chinese luxury-goods consumers, who are expected to account for most of the world's luxury purchases in eight years. The four-storey store is in a recently developed area of Beijing's trendy Sanlitun district - which includes Armani, Longchamp, Rolex and other luxury boutiques - and is meant to appeal to China's growing middle class who are increasingly obsessed with the latest and most exclusive fashions after decades in which the Communist Party frowned on fancy clothes, accessories and make-up.

    A worker makes kites with images of anti-corruption activist Anna Hazare inside a workshop in the western Indian city of Ahmedabad December 21, 2011. The kite makers said they have made around 300,000 kites this year with Hazare's images and each kite is sold for five rupees (0.095 cents) in retail shops. Hazare has caught the imagination of a swelling middle class in India who are angry at the government's inability to crack down on rampant corruption after multi-billion dollar scams related to telecoms and the 2010 Commonwealth games came to light.
