American primacy in Asia navigating between Beijing and Washington is a major strategic challenge for us India’s default option many assume is to reaffirm non-alignment — neither with Washington nor Beijing That conventional wisdom is under a cloud as India draws closer towards America amidst a rather difficult phase with China Contrary to the mythology of non-alignment tilting to one side or another has been very much part of the Indian diplomatic tradition and the Chinese As he founded the People’s Republic of China it is known Mao Zedong insisted Beijing must “lean one side” — towards the Soviet Union But within a few years he fought Moscow and leaned towards the other side Washington Nehru proclaimed non-alignment but reached out to the US amidst the war with China in 1962 In 1971 Indira Gandhi signed a security treaty with the Soviet Union as the American embrace of China altered the regional balance If Delhi railed against the US-China-Pakistan axis in the 1970s Mao fulminated against the Russian bear mounting the Indian cow The geopolitical churn continues Delhi now fears Russia joining the China-Pak axis; Beijing campaigns against Delhi’s partnership with Washington and Tokyo In this story of shifting Asian alliances Delhi and Beijing had one unchanging objective — to construct a favourable external balance of power In pursuit of that India and China found themselves more often than not on opposing sides Also read:India’s interests tilt eastwards it walks a new tightrope Those who want to return to a presumed “golden age of non-alignment” ignore the imperatives of geography It was easy to be “non-aligned” in the Cold War between America the distant power and Soviet Russia once removed from India’s borders China in contrast has a long and contested border with India and now looms larger than before Beijing’s GDP is nearly five times larger than India’s Its military spending is thrice that of Delhi In the last few years India has struggled to cope with Beijing’s political expansion military modernisation and power projection in India’s neighbourhood India’s territorial disputes with China have also endured After decades of negotiation Delhi and Beijing don’t even agree on the length of their border China says the border is about 2000 km — the Indian count is nearly 4000 Thereby hangs a tale of two nationalisms so deeply attached to territory The territorial question is further complicated by the disagreement over Tibet and its relationship to Delhi and Beijing Delhi worries about China’s deepening alliance with Pakistan and frets over Beijing’s growing power in the subcontinent and the Indian Ocean India has a massive trade deficit with China Beyond the bilateral and regional Beijing has tripped up India’s membership of the Nuclear Suppliers Group and is unenthusiastic about India’s claim for permanent membership of the United Nations Security Council Despite their best efforts India and China find it difficult to mask their multiple differences with anti-Western rhetoric The slogans on Asian solidarity were of no help in bringing India and China together in the Cold War Delhi’s more recent joint quest with Beijing for a “multipolar world” (code for limiting American influence) has begun to rub up against India’s new fears of a “unipolar Asia” (code for a Sino-centric region) India’s messy relationship with China stands in contrast to growing political convergence with the United States India has a significant trade surplus with America; its dynamic IT sector is deeply connected to America’s Silicon Valley The US ended its pro-Pakistan tilt some years ago and has moved towards neutrality; Washington is more forthcoming than China in helping India counter cross-border terrorism from Pakistan Unlike China America supports India’s membership of the UNSC and the NSG Washington says it wants to see India emerge as a great power; China seems to block India’s rise on the global stage No policymaker in Delhi can avoid the asymmetry in India’s relations with Washington and Beijing Of course this is not the end of the story Despite the dramatic advances in India’s relations with America there is much residual mistrust of Washington in Delhi Some Indians are concerned about the unpredictability of US policies towards China and Pakistan Meanwhile India can’t forget the imperatives of maintaining reasonable relations with a powerful neighbour like China The biggest problem however is the fact that Delhi has no control over all the variables in the rapidly shifting distribution of power in Asia especially between China and America Some in Delhi might be pleased with the US president-elect Donald Trump’s threat to adopt a more muscular approach to China Others worry that Trump’s real objective is to work out a new deal with Beijing after creating leverage over economic and political issues Delhi is acutely aware that Washington and Beijing have a stronger economic partnership with each other than they have with Delhi For the near future therefore Delhi’s emphasis will be on making the best of expanding the partnership with the United States while limiting and managing the differences with China Delhi has just begun this high-wire act — and there is much distance to cover The writer is Director Carnegie India Delhi and consulting editor on

MLA Sarita Rai were arrested as “preventive detention” TMC members allegedly broke the lock of the municipality office The strike was called by GJM chief Bimal Gurung to challenge Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s claims that over Rs 4000 crore had been given to the Gorkha Territorial Administration which Gurung heads for projects in the region Gurung accused her of lying and alleged a shortfall of over Rs 1000 crore “While TMC seemed to have gained some ground with defections from GJM their high handedness in telling people that they have to keep their shops open or go to their offices and schools has once more set the hill people against them” said Upendra columnist and political analyst in Darjeeling Government officials met with transporters Tuesday while the finance department sent them a directive to ply “We were told that if commercial vehicles and taxis did not run licences and permits would be revoked We said okay we will run vehicles but we can’t force

deducted” said a teacher Swaraj Singh an assistant teacher in the government-run Bhanu High School in Basboti village said they had 60 per attendance “There was police protection so there was no trouble” he said “We had received a government directive that said leave on this day would be accepted only on three grounds – maternity leave child care issues and sudden hospitalisation – else our salary would be deducted” Amar Rai Darjeeling MLA and municipal corporation chairman said the strike showed both parties that the hills can only be controlled by hill parties “The TMC stationed three ministers to ensure that the strike does not happen — Gautam Deb in Kalimpong Rudranag Bhattacharya in Kurseong and James Kujur in Darjeeling Despite that not one shop opened in these areas” he said “Because of the court order we were going to keep the municipal offices open” he added “But we couldn’t get in touch with the chowkidar in time so the police brought him But he had the keys only to one lock while there was a second a lock we don’t know who had placed it TMC workers got agitated and broke open the second lock and a third lock inside I have ordered an inquiry” For all the latest
