In my opinion, India's aspiration to have a permanent seat at United Nations Security Council (UNSC) with or with- out Veto power is no longer a ‘Utopian Dream’ or a ‘Bridge too Far’ if India gets its act together by Multi-pronged Diplomacy and Strategic manoeuvre in Political, Economic, Humanitarian and Defense Preparedness aspects. India is not a wannabe super power like China which wants to bulldoze into the elite club of P-5. According to S. D. Muni “India is neither a restrained nor a reluctant power rather India is a cautious and constrained power depending on its economy” but having crossed the nuclear rubicon a decade and a half back and having the economy liberalized quarter a century back, it is ready to take on more responsibilities at the high table of United Nations as a great power.
