India with its billion of a population is still counted in the developing countries but it has been achieving that unimaginable success and feats that no one ever gave a thought. India stands with number one countries in many aspects like it has the fourth largest military in the world and World’s 2nd Largest Arms Importer.
Here are some certain areas in India which is far above than the developed nations. Take a look:
1. Legendary Expertise In High Altitude Mountain Warfare
The High Altitude Warfare School in Gulmarg, Kashmir, is so renowned that powerful armies of the U.S., British, and German periodically come to India to get trained with us. Also, the Indian army’s win over the Siachin glacier is nothing short of exceptional valor in the history of India.
2. Undisputed Remote Sensing Capabilities
Talking about the satellite data, India was heavily dependent on America for this a few decades back and now India’s remote sensing capabilities are the best and far better than that of the US as the history witnessed the 20,000 people lost their lives during the 1999 Odisha cyclone as it depends upon America’s satellite data. Today, we have satellites backing a variety of applications including groundwater prospect mapping, crop acreage and production estimation, potential fishing zone forecasting based on chlorophyll and sea surface temperature, biodiversity characterization, detailed impact assessment of watershed development projects, generation of natural resources data/information, etc.
3. Most Intelligent Nuclear Program Using ‘Thorium’
While many countries around the world struggled to find the replacement for Uranium as a nuclear fuel, India’s nuclear program was already using Thorium. As India was naturally rich in Thorium deposits, our brilliant scientists made use of it instead of Uranium (Uranium 238) as fuel and surprised the whole world.
4. Contribution Of Yoga And Ayurveda
No matter how much anyone can debate but Yoga has become a rage around the world and people are learning it and taking certificates for the same as to be certified Yoga Gurus to train wherever they are. All thanks to India and its ancestors who made Yoga for humankind. And India stands at the number one position no matter how trained anyone can get, credit will always go to India.
5. First Asian Nation And Fourth Country In The World To Reach Mars’ Orbit
The entire world knows about India’s Mars Mission; it needs no introduction. Not only did India become the 1st Asian nation and the 4th country in the world to reach Mars’ orbit but we did it most cost effective too which is 450 crores and its the least expensive Mars orbital mission ever happened.
6. The Third Largest Army To Walk On Earth
It will always be less when it comes to praising our India Army or soldiers keeping an eye on the opponent. With 1,129,900 active troops and 960,000 reserve troops, the Indian army is the 3rd largest army to walk on our planet.
7. Second Largest Number Of Internet Users In The World
India’s future or our youth depends on Internet as we come 2nd after China in the number of internet users on the planet. India has 354,000,000 people using the net. This puts us way ahead of countries like US, Japan, and Russia.
8. Nuclear Assets (Weapons And Reactors)
India rank number one in the development of thorium-based fast breeder reactors and we also have 21 nuclear reactors in operation in 7 nuclear power plants, having an installed capacity of 5780 MW. Six more reactors are under construction. According to the Federation of American Scientists, India has an estimated backlog of 75-110 nuclear weapons. In a period of 66 years, India’s nuclear capabilities have tremendously grown.
9. Fourth Most Feared Air Force In The World
With approximately 1,820 aircraft in service, 905 Combat Planes, the IAF is the fourth largest air force in the world. This puts us ahead of Germany, Britain and every other developed European country.
10. Second Largest IT Industry In The World
India’s IT sector is the 2nd largest in the world. What’s even better is that in about the coming five years, India will take over China and sit high on the number one spot.
