original analysis

''' if it can be shown that it is not original research (some references which says that India, China and EU are the potential superpowers).--Raghu (User:Raghu.kuttan) 13:53, 8 March 2006 (UTC) *Interesting read, unsourced, appears to be original analysis. '''Delete''' - OR. Guettarda (User:Guettarda) 21:49, 8 March 2006 (UTC) *'''Delete''' as crystalballism after merging any worthy content to other relevant articles such as India, Superpower, etc. dbtfz (User:Dbtfz) talk (User talk:Dbtfz) 21:53, 8 March 2006 (UTC) * '''Strong delete''' Unreferenced and speculative in the extreme. If kept, move to NPOV and non-asserting title such as "Global status of India" - currently the title is an unequivocal statement that India is a potential superpower, which is problematic at best. FCYTravis (User:FCYTravis) 22:20, 8 March 2006 (UTC) *'''Delete all unless rewritten'''. IMHO it will serve Wikipedia better to simply delete all these articles and reboot (reboot (continuity)) them at a later stage with proper references. Zunaid (User:Zunaid) 09:38, 9 March 2006 (UTC) *'''Strong Delete''' An encyclopedia should talk about Superpower and it should talk about India, China, etc... And in the context of either of those two discussions, it may be considered reasonable to mention something along the lines of what these articles are trying to achieve. But to push them separately into their own article crosses the boundaries of POV & original research. Eusebeus (User:Eusebeus) 11:52, 9 March 2006 (UTC) * '''Delete all''', crystal-ballism. Vizjim (User:Vizjim) 14:08, 9 March 2006 (UTC) Changing vote to '''transwiki''', in line with Oneearth (User:Oneearth)'s suggestion below. Vizjim (User:Vizjim) 17:29, 14 March 2006 (UTC) **So in many of your minds, Wikipedia should go no without in depth acknowledgement of the power India, China and the European Union have. Re-read the articles, if you see anything un-mathematical or un-sourced that deals with the future then delete that bit. But what most of the article is, is an acknowledgement and list of the plus and minus points of a nation which will undoubtedly be helpful to the reader. Wikipedia can be the best NPOV source of information in relation to Potential Superpowers or it can just pretend to ignore this importan matter. The choice is for the voters!Nobleeagle (User:Nobleeagle) 05:38, 12 March 2006 (UTC) *'''Delete''' based on the fact that even though it is entirely factually, it is still drawing a conclusion based on facts. It is an assessment of something that may happen in the future; this has no place in the Wikipedia. This could be a sub-section of India at the very least. This reads like someones report or an article from The Economist or Time magazine. If this article is encyclopedia material, maybe we could have an article on Future Millionaires- Me or more seriously, Future Wars- Fiji Vs. Eritrea (entirely supported my facts, of course). Delete, please. DevanJedi (User:Devanjedi) 06:16, 12 March 2006 (UTC) **'''Comment'''I doubt you'll get as many sources for Fiji and Eritrea when compared to the sources and obvious media speculation on China and India.

In other words, the geology of Antarctica is linked to getting our evolutionary ancestors out of the trees and standing to see over the grass. WE CANNOT feature this article until it gets a geology section. If I have time I will help, but until then this article can't get featured. Also, no mention that at one time parts of Antarctica had huge forests, swamps, dinosaurs, and very abundant

life. Think about questions a child may ask or want to know; Why is Antarctica cold?

India

'''India''' ( China, Nepal, and Bhutan to the north-east; and Burma and Bangladesh to the east. In the Indian Ocean, India is in the vicinity of Sri Lanka and the Maldives; in addition, India's Andaman and Nicobar Islands share a maritime border with Thailand and Indonesia.

Home to the ancient Indus Valley Civilisation and a region of historic trade routes and vast empires, the Indian subcontinent was identified with its commercial and cultural wealth for much of its long history. Four religions—Hinduism (Hinduism in India), Buddhism (History of Buddhism in India), Jainism (Jainism in India), and Sikhism (Sikhism in India)—originated here, whereas Judaism, Zoroastrianism (Parsi), Christianity (Christianity in India), and Islam (Islam in India) arrived in the 1st millennium CE (Common Era) and also helped shape the region's diverse culture (Culture of India). Gradually annexed by and brought under the administration of the British East India Company (Company rule in India) from the early 18th century and administered directly by the United Kingdom (British Raj) after Indian Rebellion of 1857, India became an independent nation in 1947 after a struggle for independence (Indian independence movement) that was marked by non-violent resistance led by Mahatma Gandhi (Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi).

The Indian economy (Economy of India) is the world's tenth-largest by nominal GDP (List of countries by GDP (nominal)) and third-largest by purchasing power parity (List of countries by GDP (PPP)) (PPP). Following market-based economic reforms (Economic liberalisation in India) in 1991, India became one of the fastest-growing major economies (List of countries by real GDP growth rate (latest year)); it is considered a newly industrialised country. However, it continues to face the challenges of poverty (poverty in India), corruption (Corruption in India), malnutrition (Malnutrition in India), inadequate public healthcare (Healthcare in India), and terrorism (Terrorism in India). A nuclear weapons state and a regional power (Power (international relations)#Power as status), it has the third-largest standing army (List of countries by number of troops) in the world and ranks ninth in military expenditure (List of countries by military expenditures) among nations. India is a federal (Federalism) constitutional republic governed under a parliamentary system consisting of 29 states and 7 union territories (States and territories of India). India is a pluralistic (Pluralism (political philosophy)), multilingual (Languages of India), and a multi-ethnic society. It is also home to a diversity of wildlife (Wildlife of India) in a variety of protected habitats (Protected areas of India).
