    “As the world’s largest democracy and an emerging global power, India has an interest and the ability to also connect with its eastern neighbors, but so far those opportunities have unfortunately gone largely unrealized.”

    Idiots. Sorry, but that’s the kindest word I can think of for the present Indian elite and their (never thought I’d be guilty of this phrase) deplorable lack of opportunism.

    An emerging global power? The Indians smugly and arrogantly have convinced themselves of this, but the raw reality is that they are a long way from being one. are stuck in their current level, and will be for the foreseeable future.

    India is an “..emerging global power…” because it is a continent sized nation of more than one billion humans that is still developing the internal ‘conglomeration’ of so many pre-colonial nations/territories/princely states/automous tribal regions that fall within the borders of post-colonial India.
    Include the astonishingly diverse climate zones, eco-systems…
    In 2012, Nagaland finally moved towards full integration with India. That is “looking East”
    oto part of Mr. Mead’s post, why would anyone trust Burma with advanced military technology?

    All those pinning high hopes on India, will be disappointed, highly disappointed.
