With nearly 1.4 billion citizens and a $2 trillion economy, it’s no surprise that the world’s largest democracy is determined to claim a seat at the table of world powers. For India’s leaders, it is long overdue. “Now, it is India’s turn,” Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently declared. How will the world—especially the United States and China—react to an inevitable shift in global power?

Boasting a robust economy, technical excellence, and growing military prowess, India is poised to exert significant influence on everything from global trade and climate change to clean energy and worker mobility. It’s been a long road, and one marked by daunting challenges—extreme poverty, sparse infrastructure and widespread discrimination among India’s diverse population.

Alyssa Ayres reveals just what’s at stake in her new book—Our Time Has Come: How India is Making Its Place in the World. Now a senior fellow for India, Pakistan and South Asia at the Council on Foreign Relations, Ayres served as U.S. deputy assistant secretary of state for South Asia.
