56. Indian Elephant Dancing its way to become an Economic Super Power

"Angus Maddison, a Cambridge historian, has estimated that in 1700, India and China, each had a share of world income of about 23%, about the same as Europe's. By 1950, Europe's had increased to around 30%, China's had fallen to around 5%, and India's had collapsed to just 3.8%. This decline is now beginning to be reversed. Rapid growth - witnessed first in China 25 years ago and more recently in India - suggests that both countries are on the way to reclaiming their rightful places in the world economy"

              Dr. Manmohan Singh, Prime Minister of India
