In this age of proxy wars and alliances, India appears to be gaining attention from both the east and west. This article quoting the Chinese media appears to indicate that China is wooing India, and the west is hoping that India will join the US Japan partnership leaning against China.
Meanwhile, India has a new prime minister, Narendra Modi, who recently visited Japan and this week is visiting the US. The US seems to be rolling out the red carpet for him, starting with a CEO packed breakfast and a sold out Madison Square Garden appearance.
Interesting, Modi spent time in the US in the late 1990’s to spread his Hindu-Nationalist message. And Modi is still a member of the RSS, which, according to Wikipedia, is a right wing, Hindu nationalist, para-military organization with a history of anti-Muslim violence.
So I would think India would be leaning towards the US, especially given the US Governments latest war on Muslim terrorists. If this happens, I would think China would have a reaction, so this is definitely something worth watching.
