India, not a superpower: Only a soft powerhouse (long live Bollywood and curry)

On March 14, 2012 By newsguide Topic: India, Study

A study by the reputed London School of Economics says India is not a superpower by a big measure. India can't even lord like a superpower over its poor neighbors (the recent crisis in Maldives, for example). India has failed to bring in more reforms, and provide superpower-quality healthcare, education and law & order to its own citizenry.


The only power India seems to have at the moment is soft power - manifested in Bollywood films, devoured by the vast Indian diaspora, and the various styles of Indian curry. That will not take India even anywhere near China anytime soon, thye study says.


That makes me remember to order Chinese for dinner.
