South Asia Center presents: Consul General of India (NY) Sandeep Chakravorty

When: Tuesday, October 16, 2018 4:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Where: 204 Maxwell Hall

Description:

Despite U.S. support of India's freedom, after India's independence India and the U.S. ended up on opposite sides of the Cold War. While there were sporadic periods of warmth, the Bangladesh war and India’s peaceful nuclear tests of 1974 did not bring the two countries closer. This trajectory continued until the end of the 1990s. Only since the early 2000s has the relationship started to strengthen, and now it is vibrant and multi-dimensional. A former US Secretary of State did not exaggerate a few months back when he remarked that the India-US relationship is the most important bilateral relationship of the next 100 years.
