17:53 · Filmed November 2009 at TEDIndia 2009 · Subtitles available in 21 languages

India se está convirtiendo en una superpotencia a toda velocidad, dice Shashi Tharoor; no solo gracias al comercio y la política, sino mediante el poder "blando", la capacidad de compartir su cultura con el mundo a través de la comida, la música, la tecnología, Bollywood. Sostiene que, a la larga, no importa tanto el tamaño del ejército como la capacidad que tiene un país de ejercer influencia en los corazones y las mentes del mundo.

Politician and writer
After a long career at the UN, and a parallel life as a novelist, Shashi Tharoor became a member of India's Parliament. He spent 10 months as India's Minister for External Affairs, building connections between India and the world. Full bio
