Is India ready for a global role?

IN the recent past, no other visit of foreign heads of state to India caught the attention of media and people, both in India and its neighbouring countries, than the visit of President Barack Hussein Obama to New Delhi. His visit was watched closely for two reasons: to what extent the growing Indo-US bonhomie has implications for global power configuration and what influence it would have on the regional power dynamics. President Obama's visit to India was significant on many...

WONDER if when Mr. Barack Obama took time out from official engagements he perused the Republic Day message from President Pranab Mukherjee -- there is an uncanny commonality with the undertones of his farewell speech at the Siri Fort “town hall.” The festivity that bridged the physical distance between the White House and Raisina Hill was a veneration of the Indian Constitution -- hence both presidents were morally bound to exhort the upholding of its sacred tenets, many of...


Tilt towards America

PRIME Minister Narendra Modi must be regretting that he invited President Barack Obama for the Republic Day. The latter made no secret of demolishing the Bhartiya Janata Party's 'ghar wapsi' slogan and the other programmes related to Hindutva ideology. He reminded India of its commitment to religious freedom, consecrated in the constitution. A more charitable explanation can be that Modi wanted his Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) to know what the democratic world thought about its new zeal for a Hindu...

America Pivots South, to India

Could Bangladesh be next?

BANGLADESH might not yet be on his agenda, but a much anticipated return visit to India earlier this week by US President Barack Obama could well signify that South Asia is, like Southeast Asia, finally getting some well-deserved US attention as part of the so-called American rebalance -- or what was once known as the “pivot” -- to Asia.
