Modi Bites the American Bullet

Compared to the challenging enterprise Prime Minister Narendra Modi undertook last week in steering through shark-infested waters the visit by Chinese President Xi Jinping to India, his own 5-day trip to the United States, which began Friday, is safely assured of being smooth as velvet... India is in many ways a strange country. The Indians themselves call it ‘Incredible India’ on their tourist brochures. Not a single Indian pundit has posed that single tough question to Modi: what he hopes to achieve and, specifically, what the US President Barack Obama can be expected to do for India. What the pundits ask instead is what Modi can do for Obama’s America. They want Modi to hasten the purchase of more arms from the US and “tweak” Indian nuclear liability law so that the Westinghouse could export nuclear reactors to India.

Two Steps Forward One Step Back (II)

...China also would have taken note that Modi draws inspiration from Asian nationalism and this ideological tilt means that under his leadership India would adopt a genuinely independent foreign policy by abandoning the «pro-Western» outlook of the previous UPA government led by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh... The bottom line is that the US is a power in decline and it is hopelessly distrcated in several theatres with insufficient energy or resources to push a highly challenging strategy such as its pivot to Asia. Modi sees that China's rise, Russia's re-emergence and the growing multipolarity in the world order as compelling realities of the contemporary world situation.

Modi Transforms India-China Relations (I)

A well-known columnist of the Forbes magazine who writes on China, titled his article on Tuesday, «Who Sabotaged Chinese President Xi Jinping’s India Visit?» If Eric Meyer didn’t even want to have second thoughts as to whether there was indeed a ‘sabotage», it is understandable and seems logical. For, as he put it, the visit that was «touted as a breaking point in relationships» ended with results lagging from such hopes...

Habitation and a name for India in the BRICS (II)

India would have important choices to make in the period ahead even as BRICS’ political profile gets etched in ever-sharper terms. There is no denying the fact that the BRICS’ New Development Bank presents itself as an alternative to the US-dominated global financial institutions... BRICS is destined to be a unique asset for Indian diplomacy. Even today’s detractors are bound to appreciate at some point that BRICS has great value for an impatient leader like Modi who is bent on creating new momentum for India’s national policies.

Habitation and a name for India in the BRICS (I)

If the annual BRICS summit meeting, which just ended in Fortaleza, Brazil, assumed an unprecedented level of interest in India, three reasons could be attributed to it... it is possible to say that the Modi government decided to inherit the BRICS brief from the Manmohan Singh government and has not felt the need to tamper with it – at least, not yet. This becomes yet another template of the continuity that can be expected in the Indian foreign policies under the leadership of Modi...

Who is Afraid of India’s BJP?

The famous ex-employee of America’s Central Intelligence Agency, Edward Snowden has barged into the budding romance between the new Indian government and the Barack Obama administration that promised to bear fruit in the fall when Prime Minister Narendra Modi is due to visit Washington. The Washington Post newspaper has disclosed documents detailing that the US’ National Security Agency (NSA) targeted India’s present ruling party Bharatiya Janata Party [BJP] for snooping... Three questions arise: What really happened? Second, why it happened? Third, what is to be done?

China Makes Overture to India’s Modi (II)

...The US’s strategy toward the Modi government will be driven by its agenda to harness India tightly to its ‘rebalance’ strategy in Asia, which aims at isolating, surrounding and if possible containing China... The American pundits and the US lobbyists in India reprimanded the Manmohan Singh government for lacking «strategic thinking» and for still upholding the cold-war era concepts of «non-alignment» and «strategic autonomy». We may expect a sea change in the Indian attitudes in these respects under the Modi government. Much of India’s corporate media and big business who back Modi are also pressing for closer ties with the US and Japan...

China Makes Overture to India’s Modi (I)

After an interlude of some fifty-five years China is making another historic overture toward India. The India-China relations are once again at a crossroads. The then Chinese Premier Zhou Enlai took the initiative to visit Delhi in 1960 even as storm clouds were gathering in the horizon over the disputed border between the two countries with a proposal to settle the differences in a spirit of give-and-take to mutual benefit. India spurned the offer and the rest is history. The forthcoming visit to Delhi on Sunday by the Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi as the special envoy of President Xi Xinping – an extraordinary gesture in diplomatic terms – is taking place in vastly different circumstances. But a common thread runs through all the same...

Anatomy of India’s General Election (II)

There are two competing narratives regarding what to expect from Prime Minister Narendra Modi. His acolytes keep switching between overlapping descriptions of him to convey their adoration of their idol – Loha Purush (Iron Man) and Vikas Purush (Development Man). They believe passionately that Modi will put their country back on a high-growth track, root out corruption, and resort to a new, muscular foreign policy that enhances India’s global standing... A second narrative, on the contrary, is of ‘Apocalypse Now’, almost entirely borne out of Modi’s background as a pracharak or activist of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh [RSS], a far-right paramilitary organization founded in direct imitation of European fascist movements...

Anatomy of India’s General Election (I)

The stunning victory of the right-wing Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party [BJP] in the recently-concluded general election in India needs to be understood from three perspectives – first, the sheer dimensions of the victory; second, its meaning; and, third, what it portends for India’s political economy in the coming five-year period in terms of national policies...

«Ukraine is Waiting for Solutions to Its Problems from Everyone but Itself»

At trilateral talks held in Brussels on 30 October, Russia, Ukraine and the European Commission reached an agreement on Russian gas supplies to Ukraine and gas transit to Europe. It is a temporary solution to the problem, since the agreement only covers the next five months – until the end of March 2015. Shortly before this, European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso made it clear that emergency lending to Ukraine, including for the payment of its Russian gas debts, would not exceed €790 million (Ukraine is asking for €2 billion). Money for Ukraine can only be taken out of the pockets of European taxpayers. But European taxpayers are already disgruntled. «I get the feeling that Ukraine is waiting for solutions to its problems from everyone but itself», declared Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico during talks with German Chancellor Angela Merkel...
