It’s an assumption of failure, a belief of faltering funds and ever dwindling profits – the slow decline of a nation and its people. India summons images of a shattered economy, cities lacking all market sensibilities and bureaucratic needs. The world believes a country to be little more than a collection of colonial history and modern mistakes. There can be no revenue generated within it, it’s thought. There can only be the inevitable fall. And all worry of the future.
Such worry is unneeded, however.
Indian economics is not shaped to the expectations of foreign dismissals. It is instead defined to the strength of the masses – throughout the recent decades, this nation has leapt beyond its former failings and has transformed itself into a new world power. With the aid of its ever growing public (it now stands as the second most populated country, as well as the most populated democracy), it has created a workforce that cannot be denied. The numbers are staggering and the potential is without refute.
And such potential has led India to propel itself through the international markets and become the eleventh largest domestic exporter – as well as the fourth largest purchasing power parity. It stand behind only such economic giants as the United States, the People’s Republic of China and Japan.
This change is remarkable and often disbelieved by those unfamiliar with the political and social reforms of the recent years. The belief that India remains a weakened nation is all too common within the world. The unfortunate cliche of a broken infrastructure lingers always – but the progress that has been made has marked India as a defier of such notions. It has instead become a challenger of the once accepted financial leaders. And it is predicted that the decades will reveal it to be a formidable player in the economic game.
