Indian claim for superpowerdom
Rajeev Srinivasan's latest piece on Rediff.com is an insigthful look at the subtle signs of a superpower on the wane and considers India's candidature as a possible power center in a multipolar world.
I like the structured nature of his arguments, be it while describing the subtle ways in which the US will find its position, as the pre-eminent power in the world, threatened or when he illustrates how India should recognize its strengths and the impresive lineage it boasts and mould itself into a power centre, albeit in a local sense at first.
But he starts rambling a little towards the end where he includes a postscript thats relatively irrelevant to the article. :-P
Postscript: Now for an irrelevant postscript of my own! I wonder why a person who writes for Rediff.com would give a Gmail id for receiving feedback rather than a Rediffmail one?! ;-)
