    Yeah I've been watching the series again and I wish there would make another programme like it. The closest thing I have found is an internet video series known as 'Diary of a Badman.'

    India don't have skyscrapers, a space program, no-one mentions them, they don't have shiny robotic technology things, don't have a worldwide company in technology or even cars, a degree from there isn't impressive, and a mansion there costs about £100,000...

    ...so I do not consider them a superpower.

    Come on,
    How would you describe a superpower ?
    Yeah, I agree that the USA can be said as a Superpower country, but even the USSR was never a superpower except military might.
    I guess, the world has enough place for just one superpower.
    Do you really think that China, Russia or even the UK can compete or have an influence as the USA ?
    And by the way,
    I am not Indian, Not Pakistani. Not Russian and Not American either. Not British or Not Chinese.

    Very good.

    they do have a space program
    Well I've never heard of it.

    people do mention them
    Nope. Even if they did, they would still have some way to go to be mentioned in the same breath as USA, China and Russia.

    tata is one of the worlds biggest car companies
    Who??

    microsoft has their HQ in india
    Wow, no. Their main HQ is in America.

    land in mumbai can be really expensive. Office rental space is more expensive than london in some parts
    That's all well and good, but mansions can be £100,000. And I only say that because I think it was actually about £60,000, but didn't want to risk stating that.

    So I googled, and found one for £47,000 right away on my first click. Go figure.

    Office space being pricier isn't a surprise: they do love their offices in India, right?

    wait and see? there's not much to see apart from Indians living below the poverty line and living a life surrounded by cow **** everywhere.

    Even your army is ****, couldn't even properly take down a few jabronis hijacking a hotel.

    No. It may provide world class jobs/amenities to a few million, but the majority of the population will always live in poverty.

    No, you got completely the wrong idea.

    India? A superpower? God no. Examples of superpowers are like x-ray vision, super speed, flight, and so on.

    No, not yet at least.

    Problem is India just has staggering levels of Poverty isn't doing much about letting foreign aid attempt to take care instead with next to no effect. India has the potential to be a superpower, it just isn't on the right path yet.
