When we talk about politics, all we think is about power. But power is present not only in politics but in social relationships as well.
Power may exist between different classes or states or between the boss and the employee in any working place. This shows that power does apply in the field of politics.
Nowadays all social relationships have some sort of power in them. This further explains that power helps to get one’s way.
With the help of power, one can be powerful on the other person according to their will. This means that an individual can fulfill their interest and concerns through power.
Sometimes in order to show power, people use force. This means that one person is imposing their will on others. People state themselves over other even though they may have opposition or not.
Power makes a difference. It makes a change in the things which otherwise would not have taken place.
There are different types of power. These are economic, social, political, military, cultural, ideological and many others.
Economic power is considered as the basis when it comes to decide which country is powerful. In that case political power is also considered as the basis.
Economic power means the ability to take over different events by having advantage materialistically.
This can happen through different ways of production, condition in the market and the different chances a person or group get to compete.
Social power is related to lifestyles, prestige, honour, different patterns of consumption, group opinion etc.
The social power is given more importance than the economic power. Political power means bureaucracy, legal matters and affiliation of the different parties.
When it is said that a country is politically strong it means that they have a large scale government bureaucracy.
This is why it is believed that these large scale governments are taken over by elite groups. Political power does not mean power only within the boundaries of the country.
It means taking over all over the world. When the countries have strong political power they can provide enough resources to their citizens.
Military power means using physical force. This is related to warfare and fights. The countries are powerful in terms of military systems that are available with them.
It is due to these military systems that the governmental organizations have become too bureaucratic. This has further affected the way wars are organized and fought.
It is also said that sometimes an individual or groups consider themselves powerful in terms of the military systems that they have.
Culture power in terms of politics means that they are taking over others by their cultural values and lifestyle. People from other countries are following and adapting their culture and lifestyle.
One can be in power by force, influence and authority. Force takes place when one person or group uses physical force or threatens the other by imposing their will on them.
A person in power forces other people to work according to them otherwise serious consequences are always kept ready for them.
When someone exercises their power by persuading people it is known as influence. It is because of a person’s influence that the other person’s decisions and actions are affected.
Authority means the concept when the people themselves have given someone power to take over them. This shows that a person has been institutionalized to be in power.
India is a World Power
The citizens of India got a vision of India when the President of the country of the country was Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam. He dreamt about India in the year 2020.
At that time he dreamt and saw that by 2020 India would lead in all the field. Even Swami Vivekananda said that India would achieve greatness, glory and importance both spiritually and materialistically.
Slowly, the citizens of the country are able to see this dream being fulfilled. This is because India is taking over in almost all the fields.
The information technology has reached a great height in India and with time this field is developing a lot and achieving success.
It is believed that in the next few years India will be able to be called as a world power. Our country is on a race with the other countries for the recognition of world power. In the field of space the most important day for India was on 5th May in the year 2005.
On this day a Polar satellite Launch Vehicle PSLV_C6 was launched from Sriharikota. This is an Indian spaceport situated in Andhra Pradesh.
India can get many other launch orders from other countries at this spaceport. This polar satellite vehicle was 44 metre tall and was of four stages.
In the field of Information technology India has achieved great success and is continuing to do so. This success of the country has left many other countries behind in the IT sector.
There are more than seven lakh people working in the field of Information Technology.
The IT sector has given employment to many citizens of the country. It is the IT sector which has helped to make around sixteen million dollars over these years.
Very soon they are going to reach greater heights and increase the wealth to more than fifty million dollars.
The different software is helping India a lot. It is the online software that is making India to come in line. Soon, the country will become computerized. India has its own Silicon Valley and this place is Bengaluru.
The maximum number of Information Technology companies is situated in Bengaluru. As Information technology is achieving so much success and is gaining popularity, most of the people shift the places where they can get jobs in the IT companies.
Even in USA, the Indian immigrants more than the other immigrants. The population of Indians working in USA is more than two lakh and almost all of them are millionaires.
The people in India are getting inspired from these Indian millionaires in USA and this is making them more dedicated and hardworking.
This is making them confident to work in the field of corporate, business, health sector and technology. They are getting more interested to work in these fields and also they are spreading their work in these areas in every place all over the world.
There are many Indian firms which are present in many countries of which the citizens are very proud. Out of these, one is the Mittal Steel. They have their fourteen companies in the countries of USA, Africa, Europe and Asia.
Earlier the leaders of the country had to go to the powerful countries in order to get some sort of help and advice. But things have changed now.
Now many other smaller countries come to India in order to get some help in different fields. India is making many projects which are bringing development in the country.
One important project is the Golden Quadrilateral and linking of the rivers. This will help to improve the infrastructure in the country in the next few years.
But it is not easy for India to become a world power. Our country has strong competitors in this race like the USA. The US has expanded its powers by winning in wars and then taking away the areas from their oppositions.
The country has also colonized many countries in the past which has helped them to achieve a lot in various fields.
They have become powerful militarily, economically, politically etc. Due to their democracy, creativity and lifestyle people from other countries have been immigrating to their country.
The proof of India becoming a global power is that India is a permanent membership in the UN Security Council.
All of us can see that India has changed and developed in the past fifty years inspite of different problems and struggles. Now, Indians and the Indian products are everywhere.
If we have a visit to the other countries in the world, we will see that we there are many Indian products available there.
This has helped to increase the exports of the country. Not only this, we will also be able to find many Indians happily settled there.
This shows how much our country and the citizens have progressed in these years. Yes, becoming the world power is not easy but the effort and progress is going on slowly.
India has still not lost the race. The country is competing with the passage of time. After a few years we will be able to see India at the top and the vision of India which was seen earlier will finally be in real.
