|I think this question is best answered by yourself. After all, you are residing in India, seeing and experiencing it in every way and every day. What did you see there?
Me, as an outsider, will think that India is a rising power with large consumer base, solid fundamentals in information technology and large public spending. I might have probably been brainwashed by the everyday news about mighty India (and BRIC as a whole).
But who knows. That brainwashing might actually help propel India higher than without one.
