Our neighbour (Pakistan) is such that it never learns, he told the Rajya Sabha about the statement he made at the SAARC conference, which could mark the dawn of India’s “third republic”.While there are the usual caveats about whether the Prime Minister would really be able to bend an inertia-bound bureaucracy and a reluctant political class to his will the author is on balance more than optimistic: “Yet it is worth noting the reorientation of India’s international role might well have acquired an irreversible momentum under Narendra Modi” One shares several perspectives put forward by Raja Mohan Modi has been extraordinarily energetic and focused in the pursuit of what he believes are India’s vital interests There are three priorities in his foreign policy which stand out — management of India’s sub-continental neighbourhood the over-riding priority to safeguard and promote India’s economic interests and elevating the engagement with the Indian diaspora as a significant diplomatic objective In addition Modi has embraced “multi-alignment” as against non-alignment strengthening relations with each major power and leveraging them to then upgrade relations with other major powers This is a departure from the often defensive and ambivalent posture adopted by India in the past which saw a partial revival in UPA-II However one must acknowledge that the departure we witness is mostly perceptional as of now Unless this is followed by structural changes that are long overdue and most importantly unless the economy regains and sustains a high growth trajectory positive perceptions may evaporate very quickly We have seen this happen before Raja Mohan himself acknowledges that the lack of delivery and follow-up continue to erode India’s credibility among both its friends and adversaries Raja Mohan credits Modi for initiating major departures in India’s foreign policy but at various points he also acknowledges that the Prime Minister is treading on paths marked out by his Congress and non-Congress predecessors One may credit Modi with more energetic diplomacy but he has wisely recognised the logic of the continuities that mark India’s foreign policy even if this entails as it has in the case of the Indo-US nuclear deal and the India-Bangladesh Land Boundary Agreement jettisoning his own party’s opposition in the past He has persisted with the now longstanding “walking on two legs”policy of engaging China even while confronting its threats to our security He has also been unsuccessful like his predecessors in turning around India-Pakistan relations Perhaps I see more continuity and less departure than he does On India’s relations with the US Raja Mohan blames what he sees as a visceral anti-Americanism in the Indian political class and the bureaucracy in the past which he believes still lingers on in South Block He fails to mention that the US was for most of the Cold War years deliberately and systematically targeting India Kissinger was relentless in his pleas to his new-found Chinese friends in 1971 to attack India so as to relieve pressure on Pakistan History must not become a millstone round our necks and prevent us from pursuing a promising productive strategic partnership with the US but we must not deny history and neglect its lessons I agree with Raja Mohan that we must move away from the non-aligned mindset of the past certainly in its defensive and anti-West mode However I do not believe that “strategic autonomy” too must be abandoned as a negative mindset Every country pursues strategic autonomy which is the capacity to take relatively autonomous decisions on issues of vital interest to the country Despite occasional stumbles India has consistently sought to expand its strategic space by increasing its options As the book itself acknowledges Indira Gandhi intervened to help create Bangladesh in 1971 and incorporated Sikkim in 1975 Narasimha Rao transformed a crisis into an opportunity helping India navigate the dramatically altered landscape in the post-Cold War world of the 1990s Vajpayee who described the US as a “natural ally” was wise enough not to send Indian troops to fight America’s war in Iraq in 2003 And Manmohan Singh’s success against heavy odds in delivering the Civil Nuclear Agreement with the US and getting the waiver from the Nuclear Suppliers Group has been a game changer This record on foreign policy of what Raja Mohan calls the first and second republics does not square with the somewhat sweeping charge of “perverse diplomatic culture of negotiating against India’s long-term interests” Despite some debatable propositions Raja Mohan has delivered an excellent overview of India’s recent diplomatic history He provides a context in which the country’s foreign policy and action should be judged and spells out with clarity Modi’s fresh initiatives and new points of emphasis He is right that India under Modi is at an inflection point full of promise though scepticism is warranted on some counts This is a book well worth reading for the sharpness of its analysis and the careful articulation of India’s challenges in navigating a rapidly
