A few days ago, our Prime Minister was in America. From President, Joe Biden to Elon Musk, All the super powerful people from every field of America met Modi ji. But why? Whenever we see our PM going to another country, many people start getting jokes in their minds that our Prime Minister is the best travel influencer in the world. But is the truth that basic, or behind every foreign visit, an important reason?Read More
Chapter 1: Who Did Modi ji Meet?
India and America’s partnership is going to be the most important relationship of the 21st century. These words are not ours, but the world’s most powerful country, the President of America, Joe Biden’s. From June 20th to 23rd, Modi ji was in America. In this short period, many important meetings and developments happened. From Yoga in New York to Congress address and State Dinner in front of 1,000 dignitaries in White House On the last day, meetings with industry leaders also took place. In addition, Modi ji met Tesla CEO, Elon Musk in New York, where Elon Musk announced that Tesla will soon come to India. I’m actually incredibly excited about the future of India.
I think India has more promise than any large country in the world. He really cares about India
because he’s pushing us to make significant investments in India, which is something that we intend to do. On the last day of his visit, Modi ji met Indian and American industrialists. On the same stage, maybe for the first time, Google, Microsoft, Apple’s CEOs were present. With the advent of AI, the opportunity for India to make more progress is definitely exciting. And we’re going to support the Prime Minister’s vision there. His vision for Digital India was ahead of its time. I now see it as a blueprint other countries are looking to do. Along with that, Anand Mahindra, Mukesh Ambani, Zerodha’s Nikhil Kamath was also present here.
In this session, Modi ji encouraged global tech leaders, to “Make in India”, that is to make their products in India. The country has moved from a very slow follower, where the government was very bureaucratic and very, very slow moving and rigid, and not a dreamer to the most innovative country in the world. Through innovation handshake, reducing the regulatory hurdles companies of both countries were encouraged to increase partnership.
Chapter 2: What was Achieved?
In such visits, usually news gets created only on the fact
who gifted what to whom?
Who took the photo and how?
And who said what?
But in a state visit, these things are quite small. Real things happen behind closed doors. Such things that can prove beneficial for both countries. Come let’s know those things.India and USA, both the countries, announced new deals. In which, defense cooperation, semiconductors and partnerships in AI were announced. All these areas are very important for India. Semiconductors are running the world today. In your mobile, laptop, even electric vehicles have semiconductors. Which presumably are the brains of your device. These semiconductors are made by Taiwan and China. Today the situation is such
that America’s relations with China have worsened a lot. And they are looking for an alternative for China. And to start the semiconductor industry in India we need a heavy investment. American company, Micron, is investing $825 million in India. Semiconductor testing and assembling facility is to come up in Gujarat. There will be a 5-lakh square feet semiconductor plant where by the end of this year, semiconductor manufacturing will begin. From which, in total, 5,000 direct and 15,000 indirect jobs will be generated. People in India don’t know to make semiconductors. We don’t have experience, but no issues. America itself has said that you send 60,000 best engineers to us and we will train them. The Lam Research Institute of America has taken this responsibility. This is a very big victory for India.
To talk about defense, Security of Supply Arrangement, SOSA and Reciprocal Defense Procurement arrangement, RDP. These two agreements are being discussed. Due to which, both the defense industries will transfer technology and start trading with each other. The armed forces of India are one of the best armed forces in the world. Their bravery has no limit. But, we are behind in technology, that is a bitter truth. Our armed forces need a technical revival .Getting hi-tech technology from America is very important to keep our borders safe. General Electric and HAL have signed a contract to manufacture GEF 414 engines in India. Due to which advanced jets will also be able to be made in India. At the same time, India today exports defense equipment to 80 countries.
And when it comes to defense, America is the largest spender in the world. The defense sector of India’s target in the coming few years is to export more than $5 billion. So that we reduce our trade deficit and become an important supplier for the world. But this will be practical only when India becomes a DFARS-compliant country. DFARS means Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement. The name is quite big, but if were to understood in short, DFARS-compliant countries are the ones from whom America can buy weapons. Which are the DFARS-compliant countries?
If you look at the list it becomes clear. In this, Russia and China, both these countries are not included That is, America does not buy weapons from countries like Russia and China under any circumstances. And now talks between India and America about DFARS are starting. If these talks go in the right direction, then this will be a big victory for India.
NASA and ISRO together are starting work on Human Spaceflight Corporation, whose framework will be ready by the end of this year. In the NASA facility of Houston, Texas, India’s astronauts will be given training, Who will be sent next year to the International Space Station. India has recently encouraged start-ups in the space sector. We met some of the interesting start-ups among them
during VivaTech in France and also talked about space with them. In the coming time, through technology sharing, orders for NASA’s space mission can come to our country’s local start-up.
That is, to stay in India and work in the space sector and collaborate with NASA will be possible for the youth. This signals towards a positive future. All these things are just highlights, the picture is yet to finish. Collaboration in 5G and 6G technology. 35 innovative joint research collaborations. Google’s $10 billion investment in India. All these positive developments took place during these meetings. India and America together are making INDUS-X systems, where think tanks, university students will jointly develop high-tech technology. From sustainability to cultural exchange, in total 58 big partnerships are about to take place. All this, was achieved just through a few days’ visit. This is a proof that both the countries are moving ahead on the right track.
Chapter 3: Negative Reaction
There is law of Nature, for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction and this proved to be true in this visit as well.Trucks with “Crime Minister of India” written on them were driven on the streets of New York. 70 lawmakers requested President Biden to address human rights issues in these meetings. And also talk about religious, press, and political freedoms. When a journalist asked a similar question to President Biden he said that India is a democracy. And that is why India and America have good relations today, and not China. One of the fundamental reason that I believe the US-China relationship is not in the space it is with US-Indian relationship, is that there is an overwhelming respect for each other because we are both democracies. And it is an America’s DNA, and I believe in India’s DNA, that the whole world, the whole world has a stake in our success, both of us in maintaining our democracies, makes us appealing partners and enables us to expand democratic institutions around the world. Organizations like Indian American Muslim Council, Peace Action, Veterans for Peace gathered near the White House and raised slogans like “Modi Not Welcome” and “Save India from Hindu Supremacy”. Organizations like Amnesty International have also called many lawmakers for the screening of BBC documentary “India: The Modi Question”, which is banned in India. The biggest highlight in this whole negative feedback is Barack Obama’s comment, when he said that Modi ji should protect the rights of the Muslim population of India
or else India faces danger from within.
What do you think?
A country like America, who brought a law like the Patriot Act in the past, can give India a lecture? Through this act, after 911, they can pick up and take away any brown skin individual. Without any evidence, would enter the homes of Muslims and search it. Used to make them give false testimony and imprisoned them. They would torture them. Can the same America raise such questions on India?
Chapter 4: Conclusion
Look, my point of view is simple. In the world, some people like Modi ji and some dislike and that is okay. Everyone has their own reasons. But it becomes a problem when people forget to draw a line. People while criticizing Modi ji even criticize India. They trap India in a box. They put a label on India.
Which is not right. At the same time there are some people who are ready to ignore every mistake of the government, simply because they love a particular party and both these attitudes are dangerous for the country Because the people of the first category ignore the many good things mentioned in Chapter 2 of this video. And the second category of people ignore Chapter 3. To understand the whole story we need a balance. So that we can understand all the angles of a situation and take the country ahead. Often people, media houses, get so entangled in their political opinions that they forget to focus on work. That is why so many developments that happened in these 3-4 days do not reach you. And who is at loss? We all. Good decisions should be welcome in the tenure of any leader. And they should get support from everyone. Bad decisions should be questioned in the tenure of any leader. When India and America meet each other on an official visit, our leaders and their leaders meet each other as equals.
No one is up or down here. Everyone sits on one table.
They are at the same level. At such a moment, focus should be on diplomatic relations
to create economic opportunities for our respective countries and not to make new enemies.
Where the world sees India as a market, India sees the world as a family. But maybe now we need to change our point of view. There is a need to talk to countries in the language they know. The one who understands capitalism will have to be explained things through capitalism itself. Frankly speaking, America and India relations have always been very complicated. Our trade relations have always been very good. Our military relations are not that good because traditionally speaking, we always bought weapons from Russia. Now, because of the Russian-Ukrainian war, America has got a strong reason to bring us to them. And geopolitically, America has never supported us. From the UN to WTO, in all international institutes, they have only abused us. And there is a dire need to change this situation. India has started to assert itself on a global stage. Our internal issues have been firmly termed as our internal issues. And who have been our long-term partners, by balancing them all, India is moving ahead. Because India is at a very interesting position today, where we are able to talk to the world eye to eye and not eyes down or raised.
