An India with no national identity is, in the words of a former chief minister, a “vicious circle”.
The prime minister’s first-ever speech on nationalism in Parliament on Wednesday was a resounding success, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi announcing that he had declared his country to be a “nation” and had made it a “firm foundation”.
But in a bid to keep his promise, he went on to call for a “nationalist” ideology to be imposed on the nation.
The president’s declaration, and his subsequent remarks, have left a lot of people questioning the value of nationalism.
India has long been an autocracy and a political dictatorship in the form of the Indian Army.
But its political future is now under the direct control of the prime minister, who has a mandate from voters to continue his policies and to continue the dominance of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party.
This is not to say that all Indians are opposed to nationalism.
In fact, most of them believe that nationalism has the potential to bring about good.
It is, however, a matter of degree.
Nations often divide themselves into those who are “national” and those who aren’t.
But in the case of India, the former are a minority of the population and the latter are the majority.
This is because, unlike most countries, India has an extremely large and growing population.
India’s total population stands at more than 9 billion.
This, however is not necessarily a problem in itself.
India is a very different country to many other countries, especially the developed ones.
While India’s population has grown from 1.2 billion in 1960 to 7.2bn in 2030, its land area has grown by a third and its population by a whopping 3.3 billion.
India has also expanded its urban population to almost a billion people.
While the urban population has continued to shrink, the rural population has risen.
This has led to a “demographic dividend” that, if utilised, can allow the country to maintain its current population and increase its prosperity.
But if a country’s population shrinks due to a demographic dividend, then its economic growth is likely to decline.
This was certainly the case with India’s GDP in 2017-18.
In the years leading up to the 2016-17 financial year, India’s economic growth rate was barely above 2 per cent.
The growth in the rural economy is also much lower than in the urban economy, which is not good news for an economy that is already in trouble.
It is not only the economy that has been in trouble in recent years.
As per the latest figures, India lost an average of 3.4 per cent of its GDP each year from 2000 to 2020.
The country’s GDP per capita fell from $4,717 in 2000 to $3,842 in 2016-2017.
It has also been in deep trouble with the number of people living below the poverty line.
According to the World Bank, India had the highest number of adults living in poverty in the world, at a staggering 24 million people.
In this context, nationalism is also not a bad thing.
In recent years, the United States, Canada and Australia have shown that a nation’s national identity can make it more successful.
The United States and Canada have demonstrated that nationalism can have positive consequences in the economy.
When the US and Canada joined the WTO in 2001, they did so with the stated aim of fighting globalisation and globalisation’s influence.
The new agreement that was signed in 2014, which brought the European Union and the United Kingdom into the WTO, is an example of nationalism that has brought economic growth and improved living standards in many countries.
These countries have also been successful in tackling the issue of inequality.
In Britain, for instance, the average family in the poorest areas of the country had an income of $9,621 in 2017, compared to $21,638 in India, $5,857 in Germany, $7,903 in Australia and $10,847 in Brazil.
This meant that the average UK family in 2017 was on the right track.
In Australia, it is even more pronounced.
According the 2017 Census, the median income for a family in Australia is $77,851.
This compares to $43,000 in India.
In terms of GDP per person, it seems that the income gap between the richest and the poorest is narrowing.
The gap has been narrowing for some time.
The OECD has said that this trend will continue for at least another decade.
There is another important factor that is making a difference in India’s nationalistic atmosphere.
While there is a lot that needs to be done in order to modernise the economy, India is also facing the challenges of the digital age.
A nation that has so many people living in urban areas, and in fact the poorest regions of the nation, is facing the problem of the lack of connectivity to
