The essays in this book examine the nature of India’s responses to some of the emerging forces and issues within the Indian Ocean Region at the dawn of the current millennium.

At the turn of the new millennium, Indian Ocean stood on the threshold of historic changes which forced fundamental policy shifts on its littoral states. India too was forced to respond to these macro shifts at the twilight of the millennium. The burden of transformation which forced policy adjustments in economic governance, adoption to a unipolar power configuration, codification of a new national ocean regime, combating transregional terrorist outfits, confronted her with some irksome posers: the ideological character of the state; a self-defined role as third world leader; a regional power; and a responsible democracy.

The nature of national responses often forced her to be more a follower than a party to the mutating historical processes. In none of the major events of world economic order, transregional megablocs, UN law of the sea and global terrorism – was India a key factor. She was rather called to react, join the sequence of catalysts and recast her place in the new world order. Yet, India did transform with no serious domestic discomfiture to the emerging world order. The deregulatory system, pro-American orientation, extended neighborhood, open regionalism and the eastern drive were broadly carried out with a relative political ease.
