Why nations should pursue “soft” power | Shashi Tharoor

Why nations should pursue “soft” power | Shashi Tharoor

As an Indian, and now as a politician and a government minister, I’ve become rather concerned about the hype we’re hearing about our own country, all this talk about India becoming a world leader, even the next superpower. In fact, the American publishers of my book, “The Elephant, The Tiger and the Cell Phone,” added a gratuitous subtitle saying, “India: The next 21st-century power.” And I just don’t think that’s what India’s all about, or should be all about. Indeed,…

Prof. K.Satyanarayana: RSS-Modi trying to project their ideology as Ambedkar’s ideology!

To all the friends who have given me this opportunity, to the many Ambedkarites present in this hall, and to the very senior members, activists and intellectuals, I thank you all.

Therefore there might not be much new information in my speech, but while…

Who Will Be The Next Superpower Nation?

Who Will Be The Next Superpower Nation?

Throughout history, superpowers have risen and fallen. The Roman Empire – the most dominant power in the ancient world, tore across Europe and the Middle East in the 2nd century before eventually losing grip on its territories. Likewise The Mongol Empire led by Genghis Khan was the world’s largest land empire, yet after divisions separated in the 13th century, they finally lost their grip. The British Empire expanded through trading ventures, and by the early twentieth century had become history’s…
