An Indian economist, Arvind Virmani, has a new take on global power "architecture".  He feels India and China will be major global powers in the coming years and will define the multi-polar world by 2035.

India and China will become an integral part of the global power structure by 2015 and will remain in that growth trajectory till 2020 before they leap frog to become a part of the tri-polar world along with the US by 2035, said a reputed economist.

The interesting distinction he draws is between a dominant global power vs super power or developed country.

Virmani noted that for becoming a global power in the emerging global architecture, it is not necessary to become a developed country or a super power.
