    Obviously, India, as the biggest democracy and vigorous economy, deserves more a seat of G8 than Russia.

    G8 has the 8 biggest economies in the world,including European Union(they are represented as a whole),currently India is the 9th biggest(nominal) according to CIA World factbook.We are in the G8+5 countries...
    So maybe when we become one of the top 8 economies...

    G-8 is over-rated

    G-20 is the forum which will be more appropiate for most global financial and economic decisions.

    Other than that, its the UNSC Permanant seat that India deserves to be on.

    Most recently on August 28, 2007, former French president Nicolas Sarkozy in a foreign policy statement proposed that Brazil, China, India, Mexico and South Africa should become members of G8: "The G8 can't meet for two days and the G13 for just two hours.... That doesn't seem fitting, given the power of these five emerging countries." Nevertheless, as of 2008, a formal enlargement of the G8 is not a realistic political option, since the G8 member states have diverging positions on this issue. The US and Japan have been against enlargement, the United Kingdom and France actively in favour, and Italy, Germany, Russia and Canada are reserved on the issue.[citation needed].

    India should be invited to a whole lot of organisations such as these.

    a) G8
    b) UNSC
    c) NSG

    With the new world order, without India and few other countries being a part of it, it does not make sense.

    India has better economy and good communication skill, India should replace Russia, and India bhai should help China get one seat (may be italy or UK can be replaced) after India join G8 just like India help China get UNSC.

    I question the math. If India gets into G8, then it is G9.

    actually we are the 11th largest economy thanks to the rupee free fall and our great government which failed to implement any economic reforms for years, but in the long term we should belong to the G8, although its quite overrated. G 20 is much mire usefull in solving global issues.

    i agree. it looks to be a teaser.

    India instead of trying to go out of the way to being recogonised by the big brothers
    i think we should be more focused on our internal challenges.

    the big powers will come to us as we rise and shine.

    i agree with yusuf-bhai who earlier wrote baout the sarcasm - the initial post is a 3 liner based on sarcasm and a trap to see how many can be deceived into responding - we've already discussed this topic in a better way in aother threads - this thread is a dummy and can be closed or better still, deleted - it is an embarrasment to the forum and yet another expample of what some mebers are set out to do ..
