INDIA has a multi-ethnic, multi-religious society living together. India, with its diverse & fascinating history, arts, music, culture, spiritual & social models has become a matter of proud for all of us. Also it can become a superpower in future by working hard in many fields. We all know that India is a developing country, but still to become a developed one or to become a superpower, lot of work has to be done. First of all, our goal of superpower has to be unique and not just what other countries like USA did. We have to redefine what superpower actually means.
        A superpower is a developed, self-reliant and a truly independent nation. It is a country with a dominant position in international issues and has the ability to exert its influence and project power on a global scale. The term superpower first applied to the British Empire, the United States and the Soviet Union. Now india is also moving its steps towards ...view middle of the document...

India is still known for discovering the Zero. If we talk about science and technology, then India is becoming one of the world's leading producers of computer software and with increasing Research & Development centres, it is experiencing a steady revolution in the field of technology. It is the third nation to found a national space agency called ISRO after the USSR and the US. It is the third Asian nation to send satellites in space after China and Japan, starting with Aryabhata. It also shows its capability by sending Chandrayaan and Mangalyaan. To reduce the energy crisis, India is presently constructing 9 civilian nuclear power reactors and several hydro-power stations. The economy of India is currently the world's third largest in terms of real GDP and it is the world's second largest producer of food next to China. Moving towards security, then Indian Armed Forces play a crucial role in anti-terrorist activities and maintaining law & order in the disputed Kashmir region.
      India is a constitutional republic consisting of 28 states, each with a substantial degree of control over its own affairs, 6 less fully empowered union territories. But to be a superpower, it needs: a very strong political system, good economic stability, trained manpower with manageable amount of population, cultural and regional unity, high level of technical expertise and defence capabilities. Till now the most important factors are health and education. Though India has been able to completely eradicate disease like polio, yet it has not been able to eradicate malnutrition which is a big problem. Immunization and nutrition programs during childhood set the stage for a healthy adulthood. Also reproductive health services can also help to reduce birth rate, unwanted pregancies and can improve women's health. A healthy population would have greater productivity and a greater participation in the workforce. If we talk about education, then it is not affordable to have 300 million illiterates in our country. Indian government already runs 'Sarva Shiksha Abhiyaan' to provide free primary education under the right to education scheme. However thes schemes are plagued by inefficiency, lack of accountability and corruption.
