Can India become the Centre of the New World Order ?

The past couple of months saw two global events which squarely positioned India as a key global geo-political player.

First was the BRICS Summit in South Africa, where 6 new member countries were added to BRICS and their choices show a strong India imprint (despite of China)! Also, the successful Moon South Pole landing during the event (first ever in human history), was like India had choreographed the BRICS event with PM Modi like a global statesman dedicating this success as for the entire world (and not just for India)!

Second was the much bigger and grander G-20 Summit in India. Bamboozling the naysayers (external and internal pundits to politicians) to subversions (like a particular Head of State of a new superpower skipping the event), India under PM Modi proved everyone wrong with a successful G-20.

Be it from India inviting some key friendly countries as observers (guests) to ensuring a G-20 permanent member seat for the African Union (AU) to signing of the strategic India-Middle East-Europe Transport Corridor (apt answer to China’s Belt & Road Initiative) to signing of the Bio-Fuel Alliance (strong enabler for Environment & Sustainable Energy Goals) to the adoption of the Digital Public Infra Initiative (based on the India Stack) to the final signing of the G-20 New Delhi Declaration (which many had written off as an impossibility), amongst many others – India led with thoughts, India led with execution, India led with consensus building, India led as the spokesperson of the Global South.

Global leaders and global media bore testimony of this stupendous success. One example, the current rotating head of the African Union (Head of Comoros) gleefully called out “India as the fifth superpower” and “ahead of China”.

Second example, The Telegraph UK headlined “Why India is poised to become the centre of the New World Order”.

Third example, all important countries called out the India-led event a success – from the US to Russia, from Europe to even China!

This author had already opined that in the foreseeable future (maybe within a decade), there will be 3 superpowers in the global stage viz, the US, China & India!

Its time the current 2 superpowers (and the rest of the world) recognize this sure fact and factor in a strong India relationship in their key global strategic calculus! The US is already showing some signs of accepting this reality and its high time China climbs down from its high horse, and start honestly collaborating with India as equal partners in all areas.

Therein will lie the future of a new world order!
