Book Synopsis

In recent years, India has repeatedly expressed its ambitions of becoming a global power, or 'jagat guru.' Yet, many believe that India's economic troubles at home are far more pressing and that foreign policy aspirations can wait. But is a proactive foreign policy really a 'luxury' for India, to be postponed until the economy develops, or is it, in fact, a prerequisite for economic growth in a globalized world? Why should the average Indian citizen care about foreign policy--and how can a proactive foreign policy help Indians become more prosperous? Scanning our ever-changing world from East to West, and defining India's national interests and needs, Mohamed Zeeshan passionately argues that India needs a more coherent strategy for its relations with the outside world. Through travels and debates across continents, Zeeshan lays out a vision for how India can champion the cause of global good.
