I don't know if it will happen that soon, but I can see it happening. India has a huge population, more than 3x the U.S., and so it has a lot of potential. Many people are educated and tech savvy, they'll need to try to bring those benefits to more of the rural population so they're contributing to the economy's success instead of having the government supporting them. Geopolitics is a wild card, though. If there are problems with Pakistan or China this could divert capital from business to the security and military sectors, and might discourage investment in India from abroad. Overall though, I'd say India's future looks very good.

India is strong in many industries. VSNL has the third largest telephone network or cable in the world. Tata Steel just outbid another company for a big steel company. (By the way, what is Tata, is it a region or state in India? I've heard the word before).
