Writes Nath, after mentioning all the above details: “There are, thus, hard facts to support the vision for India we have in mind and there are advantages and opportunities we can avail of to fulfil our glorious destiny in the coming decades.” We cannot only beat Western countries but we can even beat China, which has been using slave labour-or what it amounts to-to manufacture products cheaply for sale abroad.
´India shining´ then, is not just a slogan manufactured by the BJP-led NDA. It is a fact of life of which all Indians can and should be justly proud. Importantly, all this has been achieved in a comparatively short time. India engineers, scientists and technologists are moving ahead in the fast lane and making their mark. This may have created jealousy in Western circles but they should remember the times when they were literally looting the developing countries with their high priced items. Like an Indian firm manufacturing AID medicine at a fraction of the price of comparable products in the West, India is competing with the best in the world in all spheres. India shining? Yes!
