    In the 2009 Australia-India Strategic Lecture, delivered at the Lowy Institute on 11 May, Ambassador Chinmaya GhareKhan examined India’s dangerous neighbourhood, and in particular the deep security challenges posed by the situations in Pakistan and Afghanistan. He presented a sobering picture of the prospects for these countries, and the implications for India and other countries threatened by jihadist terrorism.

    He is also India's special envoy for West Asia and Middle East peace process.

    The text of his speech is availble here. As an offcial government diplomat, it gives an excellent overview of GoI's strategic concerns, challenges and mindset.
