TED Conferences LLC
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
India is fast becoming a superpower, says Shashi Tharoor, and not just through trade and politics, but through "soft" power - its ability to share its culture with the world via food, music and movies, and technology. In this TEDTalk, Tharoor argues that in the long run it's not the size of the army that matters as much as a country's ability to influence the world's hearts and minds. Shashi Tharoor is a politician and novelist who spent many years at the UN before becoming a member of India's Parliament.
