Speaker(s): Dr Ramachandra Guha
Chair: Professor Michael Cox

Recorded on 26 January 2012 at Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building

High annual growth rates, a rising middle class, and successes in the software sector have led to much talk of India becoming a superpower. But rather than seek to expand India's influence abroad, the political class and intellectual elite would do well to focus on the fissures within.

Ramachandra Guha is Philippe Roman Chair in History and International Affairs at LSE IDEAS for 2011-2012.
