Can India become a Superpower?

If you have followed the Indian media or Indians at social media, then I am sure that you have very often encountered this claim about that India is a superpower or will become soon a power on world stage.

I would welcome such a prosperous India, but that’s not possible.

Neither today, nor in the coming 50 years.

No country can become just because of number of population or being an arm imports champion or building some fancy roads a superpower.
