    In fact, India is already a superpower. If India itself doesn’t recognize this fact first, nobody else will.
    First, you have to declare who you are for the others to recognize that soon after.

    India just has to continue being the best in IT technology. This is something that can control the income inequalities, reduce poverty through govt. watch, gender gap problem, dominant religion politics, violence against women, improve infrastructure and oblige politicians to have a clean slate.
    All this can be done through IT exposure, where everyone and everything comes into focus.
