Has India under Modi Finally Found A China Policy ?

Anyone who has visited this blog before or just takes a cursory glance at my previous posts would know that I am not really a fan of Narendra Modi. Some have gone on to say that I have a pathological hatred of Modi. What I know is that till now Modi hasn't really given me much reason to applaud him, although since assuming premiership he hasn't given me much reason to criticize him either. Before elections, one of the dangers I saw, in case of Modi becoming PM, was the threat to India's foreign policy. Leave alone experience, maturity and global recognition of statesmanship such as that commanded by Ex-Prime Minister, Atal Bihari Vajpayee and some others, Modi appeared as a complete stranger to the power corridors of Delhi.

Further, his devotion to an organisation known for its archaic values and worldview presented a rather bleak and eerie picture of the future of India's foreign policy. Fortunately, by inviting heads of Saarc countries in his swearing-in ceremony, Modi gave a very clear signal that India's foreign policy  was finally out of coma, his visits to Japan and renewal of ties with South-East Asian countries and especially engagement with China declared the new Indian government's resolve to take more proactive role in world politics.
