The civilian nuclear deal has been a big deal in international relationship betweeen the two nations, and particularly for India. Last week, President Bush signed the deal, allowing fuel and know-how to be shipped to India even though it has not submitted to full international inspections.
Some Indians are crying foul saying US is trying to contain India’s nuclear ambitions and it is too restrictive. Check the other view in Outlook and Asia Times. Indian needs US more than the other way around. We may have to see how this issue cements or fracture the relationship between the two nations and the future of the world.
There is a great deal of partnerships going on between Indian and rest of the world. I sincerely hope to see a greater level of co-operation and partnership between ministries in India and the global Indian Diaspora. There are lots of synergy. If only we are willing to learn from others and encourage others in their own church or ministry. When will we get out of our shells and our ghetto mentality!
