Out of the box foreign secretary

February 04 2015

Sujatha Singh’s sudden departure as foreign secretary underscores a crucial point: That Modi wants ideas, he appreciates out of the box thinking and has a very clear foreign policy agenda directed towards the US, China and Japan. Last September when he visited US, it was Ambassador Jaishankar who briefed him on what could not sell with his hosts in Washington, not to make his pitch with “Make in India” and “Asian Century” and then of course there was the Madison Square Garden event. It was far removed from the advice tendered by Jaishankar, who was of the opinion that such slogans would not work in the US.
