Indian Look East Policy
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s 3 Country visit i.e. China, Mongolia and South Korea may be seen as East Asia Policy, but it may prove to major turning in India’s international relation with Asian Countries.
Indian Prime Minister’s visit to three eastern counties is certainly going to change the Indian outlook towards Mongoloid world forever. The Western world is keeping close eye on Indian relations with these countries as Modi’s Look East policy has raised their ears.
The Modi’s visit to China is certainly going be a turning point in international relation and cooperation of India with other western countries and Asia. While, first visit of any Indian Prime Minister visited Far East Asian country Mongolia, which does not hold substantial role in international politics, and South Korea is also good move towards look east policy and unitizing the Asian countries against America and Europe powers.
India proposed $1bn credit limit to Mongolia while Korea promised to incest $10bn in India in next 5 years. It will help India in reformation of railway infrastructure, ports and making start cities. China also declared to invest in India in development of Country.
Korea, which was at the same position half decade ago where India was after independence, a small country in South China Sea, suppressed by British rule then Chinese power, how beautifully polished themselves in a way that it has become manufacturing hub of east with world largest Mobile Company like Samsung and Automobile Company Hyundai.
Indian prime minister signed MoUs with his Korean Counterpart to help to India to renovate ramshackle Indian Railway, (Largest Employer in World) modernization of dilapidated Indian cities and renovation of Indian outdated Indian military.
However, India which was in much more good shape then South Korea, but could not stand itself in the race of development and lagged behind more than 3 decades from this country. And now the situation is such that India is bound to import technology from a country which is merely 1,00, 000 sq km even smaller than its state of Gujarat (1,96,000 sq km), with population merely 50 million .
It may me ironically that South Korea has made such development on their own and in their own language (Korea), didn’t need to importing any foreign language for development just like India opted English as language of development, though it remained far most behind from English speaking Counters like Britain, Australia, Canada, United Stated of America or New Zealand.
When I tried to know what Korean people think of Indian India a Korean student residing in New Delhi said, “as capital of India, I thought New Delhi It would be like big cities like Seoul, Hong Kong, Beijing or Shanghai, but when I came here it appeared like third world country from of Africa country, with no traffic rules, no good roads, to proper transport system and lake of basic amenities. I can’t think of Seoul like this.”
However, now it will be interesting to see how Modi’s visit to some many countries for the sake of investment, comes into reality and Modi’s dream of developed Indian come true.
