    Pax Indica: India And The World In The 21st Century examines India’s record in international relations and proposes what needs to be done to formulate a constructive foreign policy for the 21st century.

    Summary Of The Book

    Written by a man who has been a prominent figure in the international political arena for years, this book examines India’s record in diplomatic relations, the functioning of its foreign service, and the future trends and directions.

    Pax Indica: India And The World In The 21st Century looks at India’s relationship with its neighbours and with the larger world outside its immediate neighbourhood thoroughly. The book is divided into eleven chapters and begins with a chapter on Pakistan and India’s troubled relationship with this volatile neighbour. It also discusses the country’s relationship with another emerging Asian power, China.

    The book also examines Afghanistan and its potential to emerge as a trade hub connecting South and Central Asia. It slowly moves outward from the subcontinent to other counties and India’s need to formulate a constructive foreign policy that would enable it to open up channels for economic growth.

    Pax Indica: India And The World In The 21st Century also critically examines the Indian Foreign Service, the lack of planning and structure in the diplomatic corps and the many problems that still persist despite India’s progress in other arenas. The book argues for a reexamination of the IFS, and discusses the problem of understaffing of the Indian Diplomatic Corps.

    The author explains the need for India to now move away from non-alignment to a new paradigm of multi-alignment for constructive international relations in these changing times. He stresses the importance of formulating foreign policy strategies that also take into account long term goals. He says the focus of diplomatic relations should be to eventually convert good relations into opportunities for trade, tourism and investment.
