Brilliant author and former diplomat with one of the greatest foreign policy voices India has Shivshankar Menon said that our priority is to make India modern, prosperous, secure, not to get other people to recognize us as a great nation, need for recognition suggests an inferiority complex.

Shivshankar Menon said in an interview with Nidhi Razdan, Former Executive Editor of NDTV:

“Our priority is to make India a modern, prosperous, secure country where every Indian can achieve her or his full potential.

Foreign policy is supposed to create that enabling environment, it is not to get India to improve their status, or for others to recognize us as a great power, or to get revenge for anything, for partition, for whatever, that is not what we are about, we have enough to do at home, improving our own people’s lives and that is much more important.

He went on to say that, “For me, this whole vishwaguru, … why are we not a superpower…. frankly suggests to me some kind of inferiority complex, …why are we busy chasing status when we have more important things to do in our own country?”

Shivshankar Menon comments come as piercing rays of light, especially because of the panic mode the government seems to go into with a tiny bit of criticism from a foreign country or the depths the government IT cells operate to “built status” which incidentally only gets worse the more they try because the venom they eventually spew out gives a worse image for India.

There are certain groups of people in the nation who suffer from paranoia and keep lamenting why India is not a superpower and keep blaming everyone in the country for it.

Swirling in pools of negativity, with focus and energies directed in mournful criticisms and accusing everyone down to Nehru who is not alive to defend himself, they have reached falsetto pitches shrieking out profanities to their own country people.

Today, India needs calm thinkers and writers to bring in the balance of the topsy-turvy situations the nation is undergoing.

Nidhi said to one of the commentators on Twitter, “Thanks Swati. Mr. Menon is one of the finest foreign policy voices we have,” and we have to agree with her.
