Given that India has become the world’s most populous nation and also boasts the fastest-growing economy and largest democracy, it is crucial to acknowledge its value and give it the UN representation it rightfully deserves. India’s enormous contributions to UN peacekeeping operations highlight its status as an accountable world citizen.
