INDIA IN THE WORLD
India has emerged on the world scene in new and exciting ways in recent decades:
- As one of the world’s most vibrant economies
- As a key player in geopolitics; as the world’s largest democracy
- As home to the world’s largest “middle class”
- As the site of one of the world’s largest and most vibrant film industries
- As a contributor to global trends in art and aesthetics
- As “home” to well-established and significant immigrant communities around the world, including the United States
India in the World seeks to underscore this, as well as to emphasize the ways that India is a part of everyday life in our increasingly globalized world.
