US considers India as an anchor of stability in Asia:Chadda

"What is new in this relationship is their growing partnership in delivering the common good, ensuring safety of sea lanes and trade routes, participating in peace keeping operations and rescue missions following natural disasters or civil wars," said Dr. Maya Chadda, professor of political science at William Paterson University of New Jersey.

Speaking at a function organized by the Connecticut Chapter of the Global Organization of People of Indian Origin (GOPIO-CT), Chadda, a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, said India's expanding ties with the US as a reflection of the emerging world order and shifting balance of power from west to east.

"What is new in this relationship is their growing partnership in delivering the common good, ensuring safety of sea lanes and trade routes, participating in peace keeping operations and rescue missions following natural disasters or civil wars," Chadda added.

On its own, India had provided the common good by forging a transnational bloc of non-aligned nations and legitimizing liberation of countries emerging from the colonial yoke but in the Post-Cold war era, India is fashioning a new role for itself alongside the US: as a conventional power with the full complement of military and economic strength to maintain stability and the global common goods, the scholar said.

The programme was moderated by GOPIO International Founder president Thomas Abraham.
