India's New Passage to Modernization

This could be the age of India's rise. This could be the time of India's new passage to modernization - a time of drastic social reformations and a time of booming economic transformations. With the ascension of Narendra Modi and his BJP to the helm of India's government, expectations and possibilities for profound socio-economic changes are as high as they have ever been in India. 

Indians at home and abroad are generally optimistic that Modi's pledge to take down the red tape and to roll out the red carpet to business in India will shine light upon the passage to India's transformation to modernization. Large infrastructural projects are already rumored and large investments are expected in the World's largest democracy. Modi's planned trip to Washington, DC, this Fall, underscores India's recognition to seek partners to participate in India's age of rise.

Moreover, early encouraging signs out of populous India are welcomed. India's ministry of information which admits that there should no need for such a ministry in a democracy as it seeks to make itself redundant, is proposing lifting the 26 percent cap on foreign investment in India's news industry. The information ministry will also for the first time allow FM broadcasters to run news bulletins from official and state-run providers. Though these stations will not be immediately allowed to produce their own news, the time when they are finally granted such status, will serve as an important benchmark on India's path to modernization.

To make India more appealing to investment, Modi has to address the so called 'honor killing' of many women in India as well as the attitudes that give rise to brutal rapes of women across India. Modi will also have to stand up to China in an ongoing territorial dispute and maintain peace with Pakistan.

India's passage to modernization is attainable. Fundamental changes needed to facilitate this rise are necessary. As these changes are blended with development, the World's largest democracy will emerge as a more formidable dynamic society.
