Do you think this century will be India’s?

“For some time now, people are saying that the 21st century is India’s century,” Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced in the US during his visit.

Reports quoting him said this confidence came from the fact that 65% of the population was under 35, meaning 800 million people in all.

This idea that we are on the move and will presently be at the podium receiving our reward is something many believe. But is size and population alone enough to get us there?
