India in World Affairs During the Last 75 Years: A Reflective Commentary

Received Date:18 July 2022, Accepted Date:12 August 2022, Published Date:19 September 2022


This article is a brief summary of the role played by India in World affairs from the times of Jawaharlal Nehru to the present. The section on the Nehru era also covers in nut shell the role played by the Indian National Congress on global issues, showing how it differed from the Britsh Indian interests. The Nehru and Indira eras were marked by a strong commitment to globa and third world issues, which declined relatively in the post-Cold War era. It looks like some of it is being rediscovered by the present regime, though a definitive judgement awaits as we are close to the developments as they unfold themselves, despite some of the negative images of India being projected in the international media regarding its handling of some domestic issues.
