India will be the world's dominant power in a couple of decades. Their growth is more balanced than China's while they are democratic and allied with the mainstream in global politics. China is under severe risk of being encircled by enemy countries (Korea, Japan, US, Russia, etc) since it is independent of the world's mainstream political alliance (which includes US, EU, India, Japan, Korea, etc). Eventually, India will displace the US as the main player of this alliance although it will take a-while to happen (I think about 20 to 30 years).
