Will INDIA become a new SUPER POWER? - VisualPolitik EN

  • Published on Feb 27, 2017
  • India is bureaucrat's paradise. In fact, if that were to be the key to prosperity, India would probably be the wealthiest country in the world. Unfortunately, bureaucracy, instead of encouraging business, prevents it... In this video we talk about India's current challenges and its posible future.

    India is indeed a bureaucratic hellhole. That pushed me towards right libertarian-ism and even anarcho-capitalism. I have a visceral hatred for bureaucrats and politicians.

    @VisualPolitik - Just one correct ‘RSS is not a party, but a voluntary organisation’. I agree and disagree with some of your observations here, but happy to accept it as your view/perception as an outsider, at the same time, would suggest that you have more detailed research before you put it in your videos and not be dependant on general articles available over web. Meanwhile, I have been following your videos for a while and was considering all of it to be factual till date, but this video definitely makes me aware that I too should validate the info shared by you before using it for any discussion.

Their party Bjp Managed the country's ELECTION Commission, They used Hacked and reprogrammed ELECTRONIC VOTING MACHINES to take the seats . the business tycoons who helped them to these Sins , have flee from the country .

    Post-colonial India is probably better off that most post-colonial countries. It held on to some of the good things introduced, by the British Empire. It has not, like so many post-colonial places, retreated to the stone age. India might be the leading country, in the world, in almost everything, had it not been for the Mughal Empire's (Islamic occupation) horrifying mass murder and theft of everything that could be carted off, over about three and half centuries. If they throw off acting like Communist useful idiots, they will do much better.

    Mate, it would be good to research more about the RSS before sating that it is an extreme right wing organization! It is the LARGEST NGO in the world. It has helped in disaster relief work innumerable times, irrespective of where the disaster has struck across the nation.
    Give it a good read.

    We'd be asking this question even in 2050, China never made any tall and ridiculous claims about them being the best, they never involved in self aggrandizement and that has earned them respect and were looked upon as polite people, though the opinion about their government isnt very patronizing. The Chinese started out from strengthening their basics, they improve their agriculture and then moved to the secondary and finally the tertiary sector, things in India has rather been haphazard, our agriculture is labour intensive, heavy dependence on natural factors and farmers' suicide says it all about our sad state of agriculture. We have'nt done our ABCD properly and its totally frivolous to think about bigger stuffs when the priority is grossly being ignored. Other factors would be
    1. Faulty Education system, and a large number of illiterate young people
    2. Braindrain, the best mind goes overseas, cant blame them, we have an infamous policy of ignoring the meritorious people and...NUFF said
    3. Sanitation is a huge issue and honestly we just simply cant blame the respective govts for this, of course govt officials dont do a great job in this domain, but we as public are equally nonchalant about hygiene and cleanliness.
    4. We still have sectarian loyalties by and large, for me that's one incomplete nation, a tamil may remain indifferent to a flooding in Assam and vice versa, we still have an us vs them mentality amongsts us, why blame politicians when we are the real culprits?
    5. We compare ourselves with those who are quite week and insignificant on global stage ex: Pak, thats the only country we can compete ourselves with, sadly, Pakistan is a dying nation and its hurting to see that we have come to a position where we couldnt make comparisons with those who are doing the best, we literally stand NOWHERE in the frame when compared to China, this is the truth and a bitter one.

      +Srinath Radhakrishnan a decade ago more than 54% people were living under extreme poverty. Now it's 4.5%. A decade ago more than 70% people didn't had any access to toilets. Now it's 96.93%. Only 50% people were educated back then. Now it's 80%. The slum population of India is also decreasing. Wait, we need one and half decades now to be a developed country.

      +unknown Hey each to his/her own. I am still living in a democracy, I can always see that you have your truths and I have mine. I've heard Hinduism is a way of life, RSS is a socialistic organization and that we need more statues and renaming cities to suit the culture of India. Hey, that is great! But, I chose to disagree. Because, I can, currently, in this India that I live in.
      What one should learn to do, is to recognize a human and wish him/her well. I don't know who you are "unknown", but I only have sympathies. You are still talking about Hindus and Muslims &so on and So forth. I really don't care for these classifications. I know Humans. Learn to see it that way. It will only help.

    It is funny how people say China succeeded because of linguistic and ethnic homogeneity while Inda can't because it is too diverse. You guys should just take a look at history books about China and you would see this country is not immune to civil wars. Back in the early 20th century before WW2 China was a mess way worse than India with warlords and shit, just like Syria or South Sudan today.
    If China is united today it came with a big human cost, the rise of the CCP (communists). Some will say the problem with the CCP was Mao and Deng Xiaoping brought prosperity to his country. It is true but the one child policy was not a good solution. You can't be a superpower if your population is old, and it certainly will be for China around 2050. Demographics are very important when it comes to power. With no real social system for old people and no youth to support them China will face a serious challenge to sustain its development at a certain point.

    Update Nov 2018:

    GST has been implemented.. so no more confusion of taxes
    The no. of direct tax payers has increased by about 150%
    India ranks 77th in Ease of Doing Business
    India ranks 23rd in Ease of Access to Electricity (was 99th in 2014)
    Lazy Govt Bureaucrats are facing the music, as the ministers of the govt are quick to act after they receive a complaint on Twitter or fb
    Almost all Indians have a bank acct today..and middle men are killing mosquitoes instead..as they can't do much in this
    Inflations hve been consistently at all time lows around 3%-5% per annum (used to be >10% before 2014)
    We don't hear any news on scams by the govt...as they don't exist
    The markets are at an all time high
    The GDP is soaring
    Every opposition leader despises Modi..and want to kill him (and i literally mean it..as there hve been many comments by them which point in that direction)

But now it has become shameless practice by many to claim themselves backward & depriving opportunities for real backwards. Fight for meritocracy is diminishing under to veil to increase reservation for the backwards. This will cost India badly in the futures to come.
