Narendra Modi's Insurance Diplomacy: An Article by Sampad Patnaik

Congratulations to Sampad Patnaik (MSC CI 2014-15) on the publication of his article "Narendra Modi's Insurance Diplomacy" in The Diplomat.

Sampad tells us:

Within India, Narendra Modi still keeps his distance from people. But since becoming PM, he has been hugging world leaders. For the first time, a sitting US president will be India's guest for Republic Day celebrations. Is Modi's personal touch in foreign affairs a form of "insurance diplomacy" against potential communal situations in India's future?
