Since the Independence of India, i.e., 15th of August 1947, we have made significant strides in all areas that govern the growth of a country. I have enlisted below some of the Notable Achievements and Details. We are a growing economy that is moving fast towards being a developed nation, first in Asia and then in the World. Though we still have multiple nagging issues like Border Disuptes, Terrorism, Insurgency, Poverty, Crime and even Separatist Movements - We are fighting hard to conquer this and grow ahead as a Nation.

India being a democratic republic has a public election system, with the full government term being five years. The most important political parties of India are Indian National Congress, Bharatiya Janata Party and Communist Party of India.  The economic development plan of the nation is  usually made public via five-year plans. Indian National Congress is the prominent party in terms of the number of times they have proved majority. The population of India is the second in the world, next only to China. We are the seventh largest country by area. The current ruling party is National Democratic Alliance (NDA).

Indian Military is one of the finest and ranked at about fourth in the world. The combination of Indian Army, Indian Navy, Indian Air Force, Indian Cost Guard and Indian Paramilitary is among the finest in terms of human resources and training. India has been in possession of nuclear weapons since 1974 and maintains a no-first use and a nuclear deterrence policy against nuclear adversaries. India's nuclear missiles include the Prithvi, the Agni, the Shaurya, Sagarika, Dhanush, and others. India has long range strategic bombers like the Tupolev Tu-22 M3 and Tupolev Tu-142 as well as fighter jets like Sukhoi Su-30MKI, Dassault Mirage 2000, MiG-29 and HAL Tejas capable of being armed with nuclear tipped bombs and missiles. Since India doesn't have a nuclear first use against an adversary, it becomes important to protect from a first strike. Presently, this protection is provided by the two layered Anti-Ballistic missile defense system. India conducted its first test with the Agni-V, a MIRVed ICBM, in April 2012.

India cotinues to be One of the Fastest Growing and Developing Economies of Asia and the World. The Gross Domestic Product of India in 2018 was Ranked #7 by the International Monetary Fund.

In the 20th century, several Indian writers have distinguished themselves not only in traditional Indian languages but also in English. India's only Nobel laureate in literature was the Bengali writer Rabindranath Tagore, who wrote some of his work originally in English, and did some of his own English translations from Bengali.

From the 1990s onwards, Indian artists began to increase the forms they used in their work. Painting and Sculpture remained important, though in the work of leading artists such as Subodh Gupta, Narayanan Ramachandran, Vivan Sundaram, Jitish Kallat, they often found radical new directions. Contemporary Indian art takes influence from all over the world. With many Indian artists immigrating to the west, art for some artists has been a form of expression merging their past with their current in Western Culture. Also, the increase in the discourse about Indian art, in English as well as vernacular Indian languages, appropriated the way art was perceived in the art schools. The last decade or so has also witnessed an increase in Art magazines like Art India (Bombay), Art & Deal (New Delhi), Indian Contemporary Art Journal (Bombay) complementing the catalogues produced by the respective galleries.
