In politics, a year is a very long time. About a year ago Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi who was then Chief Minister of Gujarat did not even have a visa to enter USA. This year for the first timein India’s history an American President, Barack Obama has been the Chief Guest at their Republic Day parade.The leaders of the world’s leading democracies had lengthy conversations in private and clinched ten year defence cooperation between the two countries. Significant progress has been made on bilateral trade, education and technology cooperation. As the result of these agreements both countries are set to boost their trade to around $500 billion from the current level of $100billion in 10 years.
