An alliance with the USA would run contrary to more than 75 years of India's post-colonial history—even when dealing with a crisis such as the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971*, India has opted to remain non-aligned.


This article by Tom O'Connor, writing for Newsweek, makes the following points:
  • India suffered a period of colonial subjugation lasting two centuries.
  • There are many geopolitical issues on which India and the U.S. are at odds.
  • India now has a policy of 'strategic autonomy'.
  • Despite wanting strategic autonomy, New Delhi has sought to diversify its military partnerships in recent years.
