Will they make it?

V. Anantha Nageswaran

Chances of India becoming a superpower must be rated low. That task requires a mean and ruthless streak 

In a conversation with some friends here in Switzerland, someone asked me about my views on China. The question was straight: Would the Chinese "make it"? After all, this was the week when China was in the news for both the right and wrong reasons. It had overtaken the US as the world's largest auto market (absolute number of vehicles sold) and had overtaken Germany as the world's largest exporter. On the other side, Google has almost walked out of China, unable to bear any longer persistent intrusion into its operations in the country. These developments capture both the potential of China and the risk it faces, on its way to the top.

India right now is hardly an effective regional power. Forget about India ever becoming a superpower as long as China's puppet states of Pakistan and Bangladesh continue to exist. Both of these two latter two nations in particular continue to antagonize Indians and India non-stop.
