NAM is not just an ideological concept, it is India's compulsion too. We do not have the luxury to sit on an island far away from where the mess will be created unlike UK, US, Aus, NZ. This region, as screwed up it already is, is where we have to live. Going into the treaty alliance with the West would completely alienate Iran and Ruskies with no guarantee that America won't pander these Pakistani terrorists. We already paid for our absolute alliance with them in Afghanistan- Talibs screwed them because they never acted against Pak and Iranians and Russians screwed us for our siding with the States.NAM, Non Alligned Movement jumla is totally ingrained into Indian leadership psyche.
just as Vasudevam Kutum Bunkum jumla.

Say Good Bye to QUAD
Say Hello to AUKUS

Did they just kill QUAD?
For perspective:EDIT: As of why Japan not included (despite being treaty ally) - take a look at a map. While its likely JMSDF would also want SSNs in future, with their advanced AIP & LIB tech, plus given their operating distances & proximity to China, SSN are far less critical for Japan than for Aus.
Quad is NOT a military forum at all. It is purely an economic forum to counter Chinese money in Asia and Africa. QUAD will come up with its own version of Chong Dong’s Bribe (the leaders) and Rape (the country) Initiative (BRI). That’s it. Most likely Indian labor paid with US, AUS, Japan money to do a whole lot of construction and medical diplomacy projects around the world.AUKUS alliance will strengthen QUAD. Just like 5 eyes alliance strengthened NATO.
"The US is using the same approach employed to contain Russia in Europe after the Cold War to contain China in the Asia-Pacific region. Washington is building a NATO-like alliance in the region, with AUKUS at the core, and the US-Japan and US-South Korea alliances surrounding it, and the Quad at the outermost level, because India, not an US ally, can't be trusted by the US," Li said.
These small groups of alliances can realize mutual reliance and form a big alliance led by the US to contain China. "So the threat and challenge that China is being confronted with are critical and serious. Russia can only realize effective communication with the West on its reasonable security concerns through intense conflicts. In the future, China should avoid a similar situation," Li stressed.
