Just because we have a love for Africa and helping those in and associated with that continent, does not mean we are oblivious to the rest of the world. We enjoy seeing and hearing about the happenings around the world. Here is a clip from Shashi Tharoor as he is speaking on TED about India’s development of soft power.
India is fast becoming a superpower, says Shashi Tharoor — not just through trade and politics, but through “soft” power, its ability to share its culture with the world through food, music, technology, Bollywood. He argues that in the long run it’s not the size of the army that matters as much as a country’s ability to influence the world’s hearts and minds.
