There is a certain - surprising - amount of unease ahead of the visit of Afghan President Ashraf Ghani to New Delhi.

India's quest for place at the UN high table

The Paper makes a critical appraisal of India-Pakistan relations and explores their future trajectory in the aftermath of the Mumbai terrorist attack of November 2008.

India: Diversifying arms purchases

Technology is important, but who you get it from is even more important. U.S. drones in the Indian inventory would have a huge value in terms of messaging, to friends and foes alike.
