Sage,

Check the second part on Youtube. He says that India is a group of states which are held together loosely. These states are always fighting amongst each other. Because of this India will be bogged down in settling its internal problem and will not become a superpower. He sees no reason for a change in this scenario.

Resul Pookutty, a Muslim, talks about 'OM' in his Oscar acceptance speech...

I think you should highlight this in your blog...because I don't think our MSM will ever make a mention of this...

While Muslims are looking for new things to get outraged over, here's a guy boldly giving the middle finger to Zakir Naiks, Burkha Dutts and other secular brigages......

He is the new hero...if you ask me...

Regarding India, a set of states loosely held together, I think it shows the Collective Indian leadership both at the center and states. It is very unfortunate that we did not have a strong leader who is appealing to the entire nation. The MSM which could do a far better job on this, are ready to pickup petty things and magnify. I see Modi with all the right sound bites, and a honest character, a passion to build nation. But it is unfortunate that we "Godhra", right or not, people have that perception fanned by MSM, I think we all owe this leadership to our nation. Also I strongly believe, we can make 21st century as Indian Century, if we throw out the political cowards, instil a national pride, and get youth to lead in all areas.

I believe the next general election is crucial for India's direction. We are at cross roads fighting missionaries and mullahs. Read the section "Read, Think before You Vote" part in the blog http://victimofprejudice.blogspot.com/

This analysis appears more like American fantasy. According to him, American power projection remains 'unchanged' in spite of its economic woes but rest of the world like Russia, China, India have trouble keeping together.

Lets see, America also has its fault lines one of which is its growing Hispanic population.
