Ever since the inception of India as a free state in 1947, she has remained, in many respects, an enigma to those who would study her. Nowhere is this more apparent than to the individual who chooses to contend with the variegated mazes of her foreign policy. For India by all outward appearances should hold a position of power in the world today, and especially so in Asia--yet she is an effective power in neither.
