Don’t give up on India September 21, 2012 / Daniel Twining, Richard Fontaine
The Washington Post


Throwing 10 percent of the world’s population into darkness is not a good way to advertise one’s “great power” credentials. India’s late-summer power outage, political dysfunction and slowing economic growth have engendered doubts among U.S. observers allayed only partly by the government’s recent announcement of economic reforms. For nearly a decade, India has represented Washington’s major strategic bet in Asia, a “natural ally” that was emerging as a strong, globally active and increasingly prosperous partner. Was this bet misguided?

Richard Fontaine is president of the Center for a New American Security and worked in the State Department’s South Asia bureau during the George W. Bush administration. Daniel Twining is senior fellow for Asia at the German Marshall Fund of the United States. He was a member of the secretary of state’s policy planning staff during the Bush administration.
