Note: This is the earlier planned schedule and it may be overshot. But it will give heart to those who are accustomed to staying pessimistic (considering earlier inductions that have been delayed by decades) and question us that will it be done by the end of this century?

India is all set to emerge as a Super-power on the World scene in this century. But there will be a difference. Our power won’t be aimed at destabilizing the world rather it will be aimed at promoting adherence to universal human values and delegitimizing rule of one set of beings over the others. We must remember that we can buy peace only from a position of strength. After all, this is a country that has seen Mahabharata but has still been inspired by the high ideals of Ram-Rajya.
