India should emulate Scandinavian countries, not US or UK. Think high school - you have geeks and jocks. India is a geek. US is a jock. A jock can flex his muscles, a geek has no muscles to flex. If a geek pretends to be a jock, he will be laughed at. A geek should act according to his strengths and weaknesses. India should too. Emulate Scandinavia. We are geeks. We can be intellectual. So let's use that for universal healthcare and education, human rights, human development, scientific progress, social security programs, etc. But instead we are using it for military ... this is like a skinny 100 pound guy trying to compete with 200 pound boxers. It is preposterous. So point is, a geek shouldn't imitate jocks. He will be ridiculed. Plus it won't work anyway, people will call your bluff.
