suggests that economic growth and development remain at the top of the agenda Related News In the wake of US President Barack Obama’s visit to India there has been no dearth of pronouncements about Narendra Modi with the prime minister variously described as a problem-solver a strategic thinker a public relations master Behind these appellations however lies a deeper question: whatis Modi’s worldview The series of high-profile summits with the Japanese Chinese and American leaders in fairly rapid succession and now Modi’s proposed visit to China in May give us a better idea of his foreign policy worldview — one country at a time Even the optics of these meetings is giving us markers of Modi’s thinking Modi’s own worldview has not been easy to read — his postures and policies have not gone according to the hard nationalist script that many expected given his base For hard nationalists their main foreign policy goal would be to make India a global military power Economic strengthis important but secondary; poweris paramount and diplomacy is justa weak appendage to power Modi however started off with a bold diplomatic gesture of issuing an unprecedented invitation to neighbouring leaders for his inauguration Since then whether it is pouring tea under a shamiyana for the American president sitting and chatting on a traditional Indian swing in Ahmedabad with the Chinese president or strolling the grounds of the famous Toji Buddhist Temple in Kyoto with the Japanese prime minister it is hard to missthe diplomatic disarming Besides the appealing optics leading with diplomacy is smart foreign policy This is especially true now because of two big structural shifts in the international system that requires subtle diplomacy over crude power-mongering The first change is a diffusion of global power economically and institutionally especially to Asia’s rising powers China and India The system has basically become more decentralised What this does is give a country like India greater options and leverage to pursue its strategic interests The second shift is the growing hybrid nature of the global system that is simultaneous economic interdependence and geopolitical rivalry This is best illustrated by US-China relations but also India-China relations The point is that India is operating in a complex and dynamic international environment calling on state leaders to engage in some very delicate balancing acts and hedging behaviour For all the talk of India as a traditional great power a close reading of Modi’s policy towards China Japan and the US so far suggests that economic growth and development remain at the top of the agenda During Xi Jinping’s visit to India last September the Indian prime minister secured a $20 billion promise of investments over five years even against the startling backdrop of Chinese incursion into the Ladakh region From Shinzo Abe Modi had already procured a commitment of $36 billion over five years President Obama’s pledge of $4 billion over two years cannot be measured in just this amount since more American private capital and technology may be forthcoming But this snapshot indicates why India has to followa careful multi-aligned foreign policy Although Obama’s visit produced the landmark document the US-India Joint Strategic Vision for the Asia-Pacific and Indian Ocean Region whether it was transformational in India’s orientations is very much an open question India has its own concerns about freedom of navigation in light of China’s growing assertiveness in the Indo-Pacific but the document is noplan of action Instead it gives greater heft to a strategy of hedgingby India against China or a stronger insurance policy It also signals explicitly that for Modi the USis clearly first among equals Geopolitical signalling aside itis economic compulsions that weigh most heavily on India Modi reportedly spent time explaining to Obama that India will continue to strongly engage with China on economic and global issues Indeed the president had hardly left New Delhi beforeit was announced that the Indian foreign minister would visit China within the week Meanwhile the border stand-off in September only seems to have underlined the needto come to an early diplomatic resolution of the India-China border dispute While in India Xi became the first Chinese leader to say that he wanted to resolve the border question “at an early date” something Modi and every Indian prime minister before had been pushing for For Modi’s part just days after the stand-off he addressed the annual Combined Commanders Conference and said that an atmosphereof peace and security was essential to enable India to achieve its goals of economic development Achieving developed country status can of course be a nationalist goal But only what might be termed a more globalist mindset privileging regional and global economic integration with a diplomatic approach for settling security conflicts will get India there This could explain why Modi’s worldview does not — and evenmore importantly cannot — fit a hard nationalist outlook The writer is research professor of International Affairs

Gerome) Related News “The number one lesson I have learnt as a writer: Don’t let people remove you from your own story” writes the unnamed narrator in Meena Kandasamy’s new novel When I Hit You: Or A Portrait of the Writer as a Young Wife (Juggernaut) Just like her battered young protagonist whose marriage unspools into a nightmare when she moves with her husband to a new city to set up a life together it’s a lesson that Kandasamy had to learn the hard way too In 2011 she married the man she loved — she had met him during the course of her Leftist activism and he had seemed to share her ideals But in the four months that followed hemmed in by a cycle of escalating physical and emotional humiliation it was her intellectual life that offered her the gritty resolve to write her own ending In her second novel after The Gypsy Goddess (2014) Kandasamy walks the thin line between imagination and lived experience In spare visceral prose she situates herself at the centre of her novel — she is Everywoman who has to come to terms with the consequences of her choice the one who is told she’s not worthy enough whose assertion of equal sexual rights results in marital rape; who is judged shamed and dismissed “I think leaving the narrator unnamed was at the heart of the novel — something before I had even started it As the writer I see the entire book as a chronicle of this nameless woman fighting the erasure of selfhood That means existing in a realm where even her name does not exist It is a fractured world — where she tells herself stories invents lovers believes her life is a film — inhabiting fictions to find her real self and treating reality as if it were a fictional construct in order to be able to cope survive and go from one day to the next” says Kandasamy 32 Even though her prose is luminous When I Hit You is nothing less than a vicious punch in the gut Kandasamy admits it was a difficult book to write “One my writing was based on my first-hand experience of the horror of marital violence — and it was something I desperately wanted to forget So writing it felt like the act of salvaging something from a burning house — something you wanted to actually destroy Two how do you talk about something that is so everyday so commonplace so widespread — and weld it into high art and literature” she says In her delicate poetry her feisty non-fiction writing Kandasamy has always been a woman “sheltered within words” “All writing is insanely incredibly difficult for me which is why I think I’m a writer I spend far too much time with any sentence” she says But long before she committed it to paper When I Hit You was born of desperate hope and a raw unyielding commitment to her art “There is a point in the novel where the narrator says how she is thinking about writing the violence even as it is happening and how that holds hope for her because writing means that she has already overcome it In that sense this book was being mentally written even during the marriage But the actual writing started in late 2012” she says The narrative around domestic violence in India has mostly chosen to ignore its protagonists: the victims In March 2016 in a written response to the Rajya Sabha on whether the government plans to criminalise marital rape Maneka Gandhi Minister for Women and Child Development had noted “It is considered that the concept of marital rape as understood internationally cannot be suitably applied in the Indian context due to various factors like level of education/illiteracy poverty myriad social customs and values religious beliefs mindset of the society to treat the marriage as a sacrament etc” A year before that in Parliament the then minister of state for home affairs Haribhai Parthibhai Chaudhary had had the same response to a query by the DMK MP Kanimozhi on whether the government would introduce an amendment bill to address marital rape “Those who say this are in effect saying — rape is sacramental rape is holy because your lord-god husband is raping you — it is a crime only if a stranger does it to you I hope they hear the absurdity of what they are saying” says Kandasamy If abuse is reductive what comes afterwards is no less daunting “Sometimes the shame is not the beatings not the rape The shaming is in being asked to stand to judgement” writes Kandasamy in her novel “It is frustrating because everyone every time pins the blame on the woman That is the biggest fiction that exists in India: He beat her She must have done something wrong He raped her She must have been cheating He tried to kill her She must have provoked him He killed her She must have driven him insane For everything horrible happening to the woman committed by the husband — the narrative remains in patriarchy’s control: it is the woman’s fault” she says Unlike many others Kandasamy is also the woman who got away “the one who could stare down the barrels of endless interrogation” and not give in Her social media bio is a brief introduction to her métier: “My Kali kills My Draupadi strips My Sita climbs on a stranger’s lap All my women militate They brave bombs belittle kings take on the sun take after me” “I think this mad obsession about virginity and the way in which women are judged on the basis of previous sexual partners (as if sleeping with only one person your whole life is a claim to some higher moral ground) has to go If you found the love of your life and spent your whole life with him/her in absolute commitment great Get a cake celebrate Don’t go around throwing stones at people who have had failed relationships and moved on This social censure is why so many women stay in bad marriages because they know that if they move out and move on society will start its stone-throwing” she says In the years since Kandasamy has wrested back control over her story There is poetry and tell-tale signs of a love fulfilled She has moved to London to be with her partner Cedric Gerome In between scouting around for a job there are ideas for another work of non-fiction “It is difficult to believe when you are caught in the nightmare itself but I think that eventually every broken every betrayed heart that seeks love finds love I’m in an incredibly nurturing and caring relationship and Cedric means the world to me at this point” she says For all the latest
