Open Embrace:
 India-US Ties in the Age of Modi and Trump

31 October 2018

Varghese K George

Narendra Modi and Donald Trump have both come to power with promises to restore the long lost glory of their respective nations. They have aligned their foreign policies to boost stagnated trade, for which they blame their predecessors by redefining international relations along the lines of us versus them. Varghese K George takes a look at the policies of the Trump administration and explains what they mean to Modi’s India. The alignment of the US interests with Modi’s agenda, is what George has called the Hindutva Strategic Doctrine and a crucial part of his narrative is the changing dimension of the US’ relations with two of India’s neighbours—Pakistan and China.
