Sundeep Waslekar is a terror expert and the boss of Strategic Foresight Group, an independent think-tank which advises governments on policy matters. In this podcast he lays down his views on why India ought to be investing its time and money in becoming a "great nation" instead of a "great superpower". The nub lies in equality, he says. He draws parallels with other countries where politicians are not treated any differently than the common man and why such rules can do good to India too. Education, agriculture and defense are some of the issues that he covers about in this podcast.
