Here Are The Promises Of Australia’s Pivot To Spectacular India

The “C” clichés of Australia’s previous connection with India—cricket, curry, and Commonwealth—are superseded by vital new elements.
In the Indo-Pacific region, including China, the new C words are community, commerce, and contest.
The term “community” is sufficiently inclusive to encompass both the type of community that exists in the Indo-Pacific region and the one million-strong Indian diaspora in Australia.
The gap that existed between Australia and India from the time of India’s independence until the first decade of this century and the difference between those two countries’ growing proximity today are other major Cs.
Another set of Cs from the China challenge (compete, cooperate, and avoid conflict) causes the chasm to narrow.

Australian and Indian convergence is fueled by all of this.      
The clichés of cricket, curry, and Commonwealth were disguises for coolness, not indicators of intimacy. Due to these historical distinctions, divergent histories and thought patterns can still cause difficulties on today’s convergence track.
However, over the course of two decades, there has been a lot of convergence for both straightforward and intricate causes. People are the cause of the warming, which is fueled by shared interests and reacts to significant global changes.
India, like the rest of the globe, has transformed. The champion of non-alignment from the previous century finds solace in alignment in new forms (though don’t use the word “alignment”).

India is a crucial competitor in the race for superpower status, so it cannot withdraw. In this century, the Indo-Pacific region will determine the primary balance of global power. This completes a 500-year period of history during which the West made decisions and established the dominant balance in Europe.
Which resident power—China or India—will be most important in preserving the core equilibrium in the Indo-Pacific region? In the Asian century, who will come out on top, China or India?

Despite all of its detours, India’s journey has led it to an incredibly promising place. India might be leading the world at the end of the twenty-first century, just as the nineteenth century was known as the Age of Empire and the twentieth century as the American Century. In terms of population, India is currently the biggest country in the world. Its population is expected to surpass that of China, the US, and the EU combined by 2070 due to its rapid growth. Of all the big nations, India’s economy is growing at the fastest rate. It boasts the world’s fastest-growing military capability and the second-largest armed forces.

It is necessary to define and test the meaning of new alignments as well as the distinction between an alliance and a partnership.
The Quad is an initial assessment that is subject to numerous inquiries from China.

Strategic factors that create a friend-enemy dynamic strengthen the bond between Australia and India. The change in ties is people. Additionally, permanent pivot foundations can be built by anyone. One of Australia’s largest Indian diaspora communities is found in Charlton’s Sydney electorate. The central idea of Charlton’s work is the promise of the diaspora:

There is currently a diaspora of over a million Indian Australians. India is the country from which Australia receives the majority of its skilled migrants and the second-largest number of foreign students. Indian diaspora residents are involved in commerce, medicine, the arts, academics, politics, civil society, and sports, among other facets of Australian life. This diaspora is youthful, vibrant, driven, influential, and ambitious.
The connection will always be altered by the Indian diaspora. The old chasm is banished by the human bridge. However, a diaspora does not ensure good relations between countries. Over 1.4 million Australians claim to be of Chinese descent, and the Chinese diaspora has recently endured a five-year cold war between Beijing and Canberra.

Two opposing forces are at play in Australia’s geopolitical pivot: China’s push and India’s attraction.
