    India US Relations

    Horrible incident in Ohio, USA. Suicide is bad, but why take others' lives? Besides the wife, the 19 year old son, with his whole life in front of him, snuffed out. What could this be, unemployment or the threat of it, marital discord? People should be mentally and spiritually strong, and...

    US govt agency giving money to restore Hyderabad tombs. I hope this same agency is also giving funding for Hindu sites as well, including those in Moslem countries. https://www.opindia.com/2023/01/hyderabad-us-govt-restore-conservation-tombs-aid/

    India US Relations

    There is a US TV police drama series called "Blue Bloods", which is in its 13th season now. Can't help but notice that the show is Hindu friendly. Every time anyone who is Hindu is on the show, it is positive, or at least benign. What caught my eye a few seasons ago, was an episode where the...

    India US Relations

    Thing is, India is in no way responsible for communism, Stalinism or Putinism in Russia, or any Russian misdeeds in different places. The US( and the UK, particularly in the early years of the state) bears a large responsibility for Pakistan's behaviour, as well as its military...

    India US Relations

    Yes, and they were a coloniser that had long overstayed/occupied Goa. And essentially a dictatorship under Salazar. The US had no problem *whatsoever* with that. Something to remind the US of, apart from many other things, when there are blabberings about "India's drift to authoritarianism" in...

    India US Relations

    That's because both these countries have entities( government, think tanks, media and individuals) who project their own motives and goals onto India! They are really holding up a mirror to themselves, not to India. It's not that they truly believe India is trying to 'control' the West Asian...

    India US Relations

    Congo/Zaire is one such country that is very rich in mineral resources, one of the most well endowed in the world, not just the third world. It's very doubtful if any of this mineral wealth is helping the people there, or is the core of that country's development. It's more like a few Western...

    India US Relations

    But I thought India was very highly regarded by the Western countries, all these years and decades, until that dark day in May/2014, when Modi and the BJP came on the scene. Before then, weren't the media of the US, UK et al constantly singing India's praises as a great example of modern...

    India US Relations

    I'm going to be visiting a cousin in the US, at the end of the month. Another cousin who is a journalist, is also visiting from India. I know there are going to be some spirited discussions at the dinner table and the living room, about goings on in India! The good thing about the Indian...

    India US Relations

    One thing that is noticeable is the different body language of the US and Canada. Ethnic Indians travelling from Canada to the US, find the US more friendly, including the women. Canada has improved in recent years, but there's a felt difference in the Caucasian population of both countries.

    India US Relations

    Right, these pronouncements don't mean anything until their governments and MNCs do something very decisive. And that's not about to happen, As far as people are concerned, the average Joe and Sue is quite indifferent, and at worst might cringe at something they read or see.

    India US Relations

    In a word, no:). But with respect to the media and woke activists, India should ban the activists( which India probably has done for the most part) and kick out a large number of media outlets. Not all of them though. Just the ones that are repeatedly one sided, and the government should make...

    India US Relations

    Indians should be wary of the US media and the woke activists. But at the government, military, and most of all, economic level, relations are solid. Some judiciousness and astuteness is called for here. There are disputes, disagreements with the US economically as well, but India can manage...

    India US Relations

    I was referring to something a little more specific, though certainly related to the topic. It's the tendency of the US' and other Western governments and media to criticise and denounce India, even when India was in the right! Goa, Hyderabad, Bangladesh- the media and governments in the West...

    India US Relations

    Right, just like bringing up Hyderabad, Goa, Sikkim or even the Bangladesh war, is a false equivalence. India was not threatening the US, even indirectly with any of these actions. Nor was India replacing a progressive, democratic regime, with a regressive dictatorship. Quite the opposite...

    India US Relations

    What about the moral/ethical element in these above actions? India was doing a good thing, it wasn't supporting a dictatorship or bombing a distant land.

    India US Relations

    It does help to focus on the present, and not be too obsessed and resentful of the past. But it is certainly justified to observe that on specific major issues affecting India's unity and sovereignty, the 'liberal' western media- the same media that is now so critical of India under Modi and the...

    India US Relations

    ^ Are you questioning the idea that the US shouldn't be interfering in India's internal matters( within a threshold) or that it should be respecting India's independent foreign policy? This is the crux of the whole approach of the two countries, at the political level anyway. India wants...

    Move to more appropriate thread if needed: Here is a Christian polemicist( for lack of a better word) David Wood highlighting and exposing Islamic attacks against Hindus in Pakistan and Bangladesh. This guy is really informed, witty and funny, I've seen his videos for years now. He really...
