L'Inde devient rapidement une super-puissance, dit Shashi Tharoor — non seulement commercialement et politiquement, mais par la puissance "douce", sa capacité à partager sa culture avec le monde via la cuisine, la musique, la technologie, Bollywood. Il défend le point de vue qu'à long terme ce n'est pas tant la taille de l'armée qui compte que la capacité d'un pays à influencer dans le monde les coeurs et les esprits.

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
