Comments on: India votes for Obama as storm clouds gather at home http://blogs.reuters.com/india/2010/11/01/india-votes-for-obama-as-storm-clouds-gather-at-home/ Perspectives on South Asian politics Thu, 02 Jun 2016 08:03:22 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: pakistan http://blogs.reuters.com/india/2010/11/01/india-votes-for-obama-as-storm-clouds-gather-at-home/comment-page-1/#comment-16065 Sun, 07 Nov 2010 14:20:38 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/india/?p=3866#comment-16065 Mr Obama is definitely going to provide a great impulse for the Indian leaders and its commerce and the people of the region.
His visit to the middle east brought prosperity and peace to the people of the region. He went to Europe and excited the crowd, upset Bona part a bit and made Barlusconi nevous. At home he managed to have the health bill passed by his fellow democrats, got the approval to salvage the Investment bankers and finally managed to replace the democrat majority congress into a republican congress. He is now in India to make some bucks for the American industry and would most probably leave some attractive hightech lethal weaponry.
The leaders who are now going to call the shots in the next G20 meeting are currently having a debriefing in Paris.

The poll itself gives the answer when compared with the previous poll result. India’s poll of US and Russia and of EUROPEAN countries should not be the yardstick of a country’s popularity.
As India had been, a British colony learned a lot many tricks of the trade from them. Like the one you like most, to show grade’s him the to be the worst and the one you hate most grade’s him be the best or average. In addition, they have learned that it is safe to blame the dog before it is hanged.
Therefore, Indian Poll will be difficult to assess by the west, even British finds these days difficult to assess. Because Indians keep some margin to swing up and down depending on the success and failure of the visit from their point of view. They quickly publish a supplementary stating therein the poll result to be read as amended.
However, that is as far is about the Indian poll result’s is concerned on Obama’s visit. Those who know the Indian system, it is if one says is good than it is bad if even neutral and is worst.
India is waiting to squeeze out from US whatever it can get, so too US. That is in the mutual interest of their respective countries interest on economical aspect.
India may like to bide on armament purchase to stand erect in front of China. In addition, obviously US would be happy to agree to the proposal if there were any from Indian side.
On Political side,there may be more talks other than commercial deals. It may concern China, India’s relationship with its neighboring countries all around.
Kashmir may come up as a separate talk altogether, that may include India’s Violation of Human Rights.
The relation of Pakistan, India, and Afghanistan may come up wherein USA may ask India to participate in the fight against Taliban.
Before concluding would like to say it would not be wise to make any assessment favorably or otherwise before the visit it would be better after the visit. As the early voting is mostly done to flatter the real poll, result would be after the visit if held because that will expose the intent of the initial voting.

proportion of the Indian populace of over a billion.These are the faux Levi ‘all dressed-up’maccas frequenters with some IT education, biding time in crowded call centers…dreaming for a Greencard!!
