    BHARAT / HINDUSTAN / INDIA WILL BE 4TH MOST - POWERFUL NATION BY 2025 !

    India can emerge as the world’s fourth most-powerful nation by 2025, External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna said on Tuesday while releasing a government-sponsored National Security Index study that currently places India one place lower.

    “The revised National Security Index, an analytical tool developed to understand where we stand on various Security parametres, points to India emerging as the fourth most powerful in the world by 2025,” Krishna noted. “I recollect what MS Dhoni, the captain of India’s cricket World Cup winning team, said a few days ago about his team’s ODI ranking: ‘If we keep playing well, the rankings will take care of themselves’,” Krishna added.

    The 50 nations were measured in terms of their defence capability, economic strength, effective population, technological prowess and energy security to arrive at the study’s conclusions, Foundation for National Security Research (FNSR) director Satish Kumar, who was part of the analysis, told media here.

    The series was conceptualised in 2000 in the wake of India’s 1998 nuclear tests and the Kargil war that followed in 1999 to provide in-depth assessment of national security threats and challenges and to enhance the level of national security consciousness, Satish Kumar, who edited the annual review, said.

    Only US, China and Russia are ranked higher than India in defence capability, while in effective population China and United States were ahead. In economic strength, US, Japan, China, Germany, United Kingdom and France score more than India.

    According to the report, the strategic community in India “will take some more time to get used” to India being a high-ranking power.
    “Of course, the variable that helps India most is the size of its skilled working population. But that variable helps China to a great deal,” it said.

    These kinds of threads are so pointless and useless. Let's talk about our power in 2025 when we reach 2025.

    For right now, we cannot even control our own neighborhood. Bangladeshis shamelessly cross into our territory, Sri Lankans shamelessly kill our fishermen, and Pakistanis shamelessly sponsor terrorism right under our noses.

    What is the use of this 'power' if we cannot put these countries in place?

    Don't underestimate those things, everyone needs to look to the future. Europe and America will look like crap in 2025, by 2050 the minorities would already make the majority in some (*edited*) places so things are probably going to happen by 2025. In fact, their current birth rate will weep them off the earth in around 150 years...

    Pointless thread. No offence, Kunal bhai. I'd rather we just shut the phuck up, continue to build on our good work and strengthen our institutions and our means for warfare. Strengthen the armed forces, the economy, welfare, citizenship and culture. Work towards building alliances other nations and extending our sphere of influence with other governments. Your proclamations should always follow a clip behind actual workings because proclamations tend to lead someone to overestimate the other. But, in this and other cases, our hyperactive, overzealous media leaves nothing to the imagination.

    A weak dog must bark. A strong dog will just rip your head off.

    The dissonance between media and government on broadcasting tends to leave one with the impression that India is really trying to front. We are not weak, we're strong, but let's not use reverse-psychology to our disadvantage, eh?
