“We owe a lot to Indians, who taught us how to count, without which no worthwhile scientific discovery could have been made….!!”

If you’re an Indian, you should read this further…. But if you aren’t an Indian, I’d say you must read this all. It’s official 70th Republic Day of India… The day when the democratic nation got its Constitution applied. But let me remind you, this is not just about the 70 years; but India’s 5000 year ancient history of rise and fall and rise again, itself guarantees that it IS the next Global Superpower…..!!

India isn’t just a 72 year old independent nation. It’s unity in diversity dates back to the ages of Vedas and the early days of Indus Valley Civilization. During the ancient and mediaeval times as well, India has been a one nation divided under several princely states. The maps of Mauryan, Mughal and Maratha Empires prove this point.

India once used to have the most wealth in the world untill foreign invasions by the Arabians and Europeans. For a thousand years, India has been continuously ruined by Mughals, Britishers, French, Portuguese and Arabians. The most by the Britishers for more than 200 years. When India got independent from the Britishers, the nation was left with ashes. Do you know, in just 70 years, India is about to surpass the economy of UK….? I don’t say that’s a vengeance, may be that is a proper; but surely this is Karma. Don’t take it otherwise Britishers…!!
When we go through the history of the world, there had been superpowers which either ruled or bullied other nations. Currently it’s the US. These superpowers fought amongst themselves, the best example being the World Wars. But India’s aspect of being a superpower is not invading or bullying others, but to bring peace and prosperity all over the world. India’s international relations are the concrete evidence for that.
—Statistics in Brief—
Still confused how a nation with poverty in millions will become a superpower…? What does it require to be a superpower…?
India is the 5th largest economy, has a force of 4th largest active military, one of the nine nuclear states and yes, it is the fastest growing major economy growing more than 7.5% every year. And yes, India’s poverty declining rate has been increasing. India’s absolute poverty is now only 12%….!!
India’s population burst is a problem but population growth is well under control. 1.3 billion people with 65% being the youth. The youth only work and add to the wealth of the nation. We have the largest young population in the world. The current pace of employment generation is not so good but even that is sufficient for India to cross 5 Trillion Dollars of GDP within 2030.
India’s growth doesn’t depend on any other country’s loot but the prosperity of its own people and the others’ who co operate.
Economically, India largely depends on service and agricultural sector. The speedy rise in the manufacturing sector in past decade is the prime reason of India’s growth being the largest. The Make in India initiative has resulted in large foreign investments in India.
IT Sector is booming in India. Billions of dollars are being invested, many IT hubs are being constructed across the country.

Infrastructure development in India, especially highways, is being excellent since 4 years. Durable and invulnerable roads are being constructed across the nation.

Ancient and glorious is India’s culture. Food, festivals, religions, customs everything is unique and giant.
India’s cultural diversity is known. I’ve made this slideshow for its quick display. Please have a look at it.
Along with culture, Vedic Science, Mathematics, Ayurveda, Yoga, The 4 Vedas, The Great Sanskrit, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu, Bengali, Urdu Literatures and many more. You name it and India has its own.
Though being highly diversified, India’s national integrity is way too strong and it will uphold. It had always been there. The phrases like आसेतु-सिंधू (Aasetu-Sindhu) or आसेतु-हिमालय, meaning one single nation from the southernmost ‘Ramsetu’ (which is at the tip of India in the state of Tamil Nadu) to the Himalayas have actually been found in the historic drafts. Long may it reign.
These are the significant, yet not all factors which signify the aspects of India being a global superpower. In the next part, we’ll be discussing facts in details that cause evidences and the threats as well.
