Perhaps for the first time since the 2008 nuclear deal, India seems a bit insecure about where it stands with its long-time friend and strategic partner, the United States of America. The reason: The rather mercurial President Trump and his belligerent trade wars.
But I argue that we should treat any friction in the India-US relationship as temporary and stay focused on the long-term prize: An unequivocal alliance.
It’s all here in my latest book, Super Century: What India Must Do To Rise By 2050.
