UK has a weaker military than us because they refuse to spend adequately on defence. This is because of the lack of any real threats since the end of the cold war. During the cold war they were consistently spending 4% of GDP on defence, while still maintaining universal healthcare and retirement pensions. If they spent as much today, they would have a defence budget of 112 billion USD, with at least 30% going to the navy. Their defence industry is also much better than ours, including the very critical capability of producing modern fighter jet engines. Their army on the other hand is too small to matter much. But they have the ability to make a very strong navy and air force if they choose to spend. Again, it's not because they can't afford it, but rather they don't bother. Their defence budget is only 8% of their government budget. Economically we will be much bigger than them soon, but with a per capita income that is miniscule compared to theirs. In terms of information warfare too they're far ahead of us. No matter how much we badmouth BBC, one documentary from them is enough to give a false notion about India to the entire world. We can't retaliate in kind.

India's Forex reserves are 429 billion USD
UK' forex is only 160 billion USD
That is not achievement.
With London - one of the world financial centers and a good developed financial system, UK doesn't need a large forex as their banking system can quickly raise capital in short time to deal with short-term financial crisis.
On the other hand, the developing countries like India and China, need a large forex to give the market confidence and prepare for any financial market crisis.

UK is a 20 times smaller country than India. So it will be left weaker by default even when India is good enough.

Most of them are neo liberal idiots who cast chocolates in @$$holes, make museums for genitals and believe that their country is still central stage of world. Seriously, what's point wasting time bothering about what "British think"?

Haven't you seen enough of them on internet? They are idiots.

UK's defense budget isn't small in anyway. It's tactical military too is still one of best in world yet.

It's however America's b*tch with all its strategic assets borrowed from USA and depends upon them for its security.
One thing India is far ahead of the UK is in Space technology. They have nothing comparable to ISRO.
UK is a part of ESA. So it may not be that far behind that we think. It's not upto ISRO however for sure.

In all technological aspects, UK still has more knowhow of many critical technologies than India. India's real advantage is size here only.

Yeah, makes sense. Maybe unrelated, but the UK's foreign debt is also far higher than India's, with an economy of similar size.

Lots of reports have come out about the pathetic readiness levels of their air force and army. I would rate India as much more powerful on land and air. Their navy is decent though. But will soon be surpassed by us.

UK has the defence technology especially critical technologies like jet engines,gas turbines for navy and armaments ,it has more or less outsourced it's defence needs to US case in point is ,F35 operated currently on UK carrier is of USA because it's own hasn't been delivered ,UK still has many overseas territories especially diego Garcia and it's still has an elite air force & navy ,army more or less is miniscule for any large campaigns ,if we look at from time of independence many neo colonists in UK believed India would crumble like Yugoslavia and pakis will go strong especially Churchill & company,now we will cross their GDP in nominal terms even though we liberalised only after fall of Soviet Union ,not bad for beastly people with a beastly religion as the racist Churchill would say !
