India should wake up to Pompeo's empty words

Acting like a cheerleader, the US has guaranteed India with no real investment, but inspiring lip-service. It will not benefit India's development if the country is captivated by empty talk.

Morrison's defense blueprint reveals Canberra's anxiety

If Australia really yearns to elevate its diplomatic status and expand its influence, it will have some hard thinking to do over how to make up for the huge gap between its strategic resources and aims, and how to make best use of its advantages while bypassing its disadvantages.

Do China-India relations need a reset?

The resolution of the border issue may calm down the temperature. But I believe the understanding on other regional and global issues will continue to determine whether India-China relations will be malevolent, benevolent or beyond the binary of friendship and animosities.

Poor COVID handling, selfishness leaves US off EU safe travel list

The EU extending its travel ban over visitors from the US is mainly out of the bloc's disappointment over the US' mishandling in controlling the novel coronavirus pandemic.

Neighborhood first or coercive diplomacy: What India wants

However, experts also wondered: How India will pursue it neighborhood first policy in the presence of “coercive diplomacy?” As it was not fashionable nor in the interests of New Delhi's Western partners, nobody debated it or tried to decode it. BJP and Indian elites perceived it as an opportunity and started to pursue the agenda of a Greater India. It started to interfere with regional countries under the slogan of “Akhand Bharat.”

Current rise of Hindu nationalism is rare in history, as India faces no foreign invasion or bullying now. The core of this rising nationalism is to build a big country of Hinduism. Indians believe they have to win over China before they can achieve this goal.
