What I take for the world is that India, for all the huge challenges it confronts, is likely to continue its rise, if more slowly than the report assumes. The job of adjusting the familiar western ways of thinking about the world to the new realities has hardly begun. Within a decade a world in which the UK is on the United Nations Security Council and India is not will seem beyond laughable. The old order passes. The sooner the world adjusts, the better.
Many years ago Rabindranath Tagore had penned this ...
Sound the clarion India is going to reclaim its position at the top in the world stage. (Lousy translation of the excellent Bangla poetry, I agree, but the meaning is conveyed, I hope)
But before that we need to change. The good thing is the path is clear, but do we have the political and social will?
