    A rather long article , have posted some relevant parts. Daniel Twining: Why Asia is ready for a US-India-Japan alliance- Nikkei Asian Review

    The question that arises is how does India manage the tango with US-Japan on one side and China on the other hand.

    My feeling is Japan does not like India enough to play ball.

    USA's affection is still directed towards India's hostile neighbour.

    So a USA-Japan-India alliance will remain a dream.

    Basically, USA wants India to do lots of things without giving anything free;
    India wants to get something without doing anything;
    Japan? She gets nothing to give.
    The things the she can give: money, technology, etc. India can get all these without forming an alliance with Japan.

    India should move to form an alliance with Japan. After that the US and Australia will join.

    India should also form alliances with most ASEAN nations especially Myanmar, Vietnam, and Philippines.

    China is not to be trusted since it is a hostile nation with expansionist motives. India should attempt to draw Iran, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Nepal, and Afghanistan out of China's camp and try to weaken China's alliance with Pakistan.

    What does usa want india to do?

    If Japan were to give capital, Tech, genuine strategic partnerships then they deserve India's commitment to an alliance especially a military one.

    USA wants India come into Western Pacific to help while leaving Indian Ocean to US navy.

    There are 2 questions about your opinion:
    1. If Korean, Taiwanese, Chinese, almost everyone in eastern Asia got these (except a strategic partnership) without a commitment to a military one, why India is willing to overpay?
    2. What is this strategic partnership meaning? Neither Japanese, nor Indian has the will and ability to support the other side in potential conflict against China with any meaningful movement.
