am A security personnel stands guard outside one of the venues of BRICS (Brazil Russia India China and South Africa) Summit in Benaulim in the western state of Goa (Source: Reuters photo) Top News What happens when the glue that binds a set of nations comes unstuck That is when the contradictions within the members of the set begin to loom larger than the force that brought them together in the first place That is the current strategic condition of the BRICS forum involving Brazil Russia India China and South Africa whose leaders are gathering in Goa this weekend It is the quest for a multipolar world that brought these geographically disparate states under one umbrella after the Cold War But when the multipolar world is already upon us can the BRICS hang together The example of NATO the world’s most powerful military alliance is instructive The US and West European states came together in 1949 to counter what they saw as an assertive Soviet Union after World War II Keeping NATO afloat as a coherent alliance after the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 has not been easy The differences within NATO broke out barely a decade later when the US decided to invade Iraq in 2003 Turkey a member of NATO refused to back the intervention France and Germany stepped back Britain joined the fight but has regretted it ever since Unlike in Iraq the fight in Afghanistan seemed a “good war” for most members of NATO But as the Taliban nurtured back to life by the Pakistan army began to destabilise Afghanistan since the mid 2000s the alliance members are finding it hard to sustain their national military commitments to Kabul BRICS too may have passed the moment of peak solidarity The challenge now is to manage the growing differences among them The political origin of BRICS lay in the concept of a “strategic triangle” that was articulated by the Russian Prime Minister Yevgeny Primakov in the early 1990s Primakov wanted Russia China and India to blunt the edge of American power in the post-Cold War world Brazil and South Africa joined the forum a little later and lent it greater credibility as the voice of the emerging powers Although Brazil and South Africa are important partners it is the shifting dynamic among the three Eurasian powers — Russia China and India — and their relationship with the US that will shape the future of BRICS That brings us to the current double bind faced by BRICS One is the decline of America and the other is the rapid rise of China If the fear of unrestrained American power dominated the global strategic discourse in the early 1990s the discussion today is about American retrenchment if not decline If China had its head down in the 1990s Beijing is now convinced that its moment is at hand Thanks to President Barack Obama’s refusal to take America into another war in the Middle East it is Russia that is shaping the regional dynamic America much dreaded in the 1990s as a “hyper power” has become a virtual bystander in the Eurasian theatres In Europe Russia is running rings around NATO In the South China Sea America warily watches China’s assertion of expansive territorial claims Worse still Washington has the mortification of seeing one of its oldest military allies — the Philippines — toyed with by Beijing That has put Delhi in a triple bind One in the 1990s India joined Russia and China as part of its hedge against American power in a unipolar world It was a decade when Washington was trying to roll back India’s nuclear weapons programme raising questions about Kashmir’s accession to India and threatening to mediate Delhi’s disputes with Islamabad Today it is China’s power that India rubs against all the time — whether it is the membership of the Nuclear Suppliers Group or getting the UN to act against Pakistan’s support for cross-border terrorism Two although Delhi continues to argue with the terms of US-led globalisation India’s bigger problems are with China Delhi has a tidy trade surplus with the US — about $23 billion in 2015 and $16 billion in the first eight months of 2016 India’s trade deficit with China swelled to $52 billion in 2015-16 While China may be India’s growth opportunity over the longer term Delhi is struggling to come to terms with the rise of Chinese capitalism and its impact on regional and global economic systems in the near term Three China’s rise has also begun to constrict India’s room for manoeuvre in the neighbourhood In the past India worried about America’s sweeping political influence in the neighbouring states Today India’s regional challenges are complicated by China’s expanding political economic and military influence in all South Asian capitals Some in India argue that it is India’s recent “tilt” towards America that is creating problems with China and Russia The fact however is that both Russia and China are looking for their own deals with America President Vladimir Putin has not embarked on an ideological crusade against Washington He wants a better geopolitical accommodation than what America gave Russia in 1991 China’s supreme leader Xi Jinping too wants to build a “new type of great power relationship” with the US Translated it means Washington should accept China’s primacy in Asia and share responsibilities with Beijing in managing the global order For Putin and Xi BRICS is part of a geopolitical play to advance their national interests amidst a tectonic shift in global power distribution Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s commitment to realpolitik is probably no less Delhi’s public discourse may continue to pretend that it is Indian foreign policy’s “dharma” to lead the construction of a non-Western global order; Modi however knows that Delhi’s enduring “karma” is to work for a balance of power system that favours India’s rise To figure out the meaning of the Goa summit ignore the collective BRICS rhetoric and focus on what Putin Xi and Modi might say and do separately The

| Published: November 28 2015 12:45 am We can tolerate any discussion about anything without any sense of proportion or irony Why we can even debate our commitment to the Constitution Top News Rahul Gandhi’s question malfunction in a Bengaluru college is still being probed by the media and his party spokespeople had to scramble to defend it as evidence of the Congress’s tolerance of dissent Why he chose to punctuate an address which was humming along nicely with rhetorical questions about Swachh Bharat is mystifying While the public is now blasé about the campaign and dissatisfaction with the cess to fund it has just begun to bite younger people have been positively influenced by Swachh Bharat communications It may have achieved nothing tangible but it seems to have made young adults less tolerant of litter and they feel positive about it Didn’t Rahul Gandhi’s handlers know this Their job is only slightly less unenviable than those of the apologists of the ruling party who are clutching at pathetically short straws (and sundry charms and talismans no doubt) as they protest that the mere fact that someone named Aamir could marry someone named Kiran is abundant proof of India’s tolerance It is big-hearted of the government to offer to debate everything – including the intolerance debate perchance – but it makes no difference now after the public has taken charge of the conversation Ravish Kumar of NDTV has gone to the extent of an eight-minute satire of tolerant India in which he ceaselessly celebrated our exemplary tolerance for the most intolerable enormities such as the polluted air in Delhi Patna Lucknow and Agra Only reluctant to bad-mouth India on air he referred to air pollution as “pavitra pavan” He also expressed disappointment at Indian and Pakistani cricketing authorities seeking neutral turf offshore because it expressed only partial intolerance “We shall achieve perfect intolerance when the camera shows only Indian runs and Indian catches” On Times Now Arnab Goswami became intolerably intolerant of censor board chief Pahlaj Nihalani when he breezily admitted to toning down the kissing in the latest Bond film without even seeing it “It is not my job to see movies” Nihalani revealed “I have not seen a single film not a single shot” The last time Goswami’s jaw went that slack was when Gen VK Singh had bared his soul unbidden in the course of a bizarre interview He tried to take it on the chin but finally Nihalani ground him down with the gory details of bureaucratic processes For black comedy this show only gets competition from an imaginary print interview of Nihalani in which the journalist asks about Andaz a film that Nihalani produced in 1994 in which Anil Kapoor flicked his lungi about like a flamenco skirt while singing “Khada hai khada hai” to a visibly agitated Juhi Chawla In the dream Nihalani claims it’s a Sufi number and protests that he has been misunderstood forever Arnab Goswami is one of the very few anchors who have impatiently attacked the chronically misunderstood lot instead of engaging with the pettifoggery of the debate The government has divided this nation into two camps – its supporters are painted as disinterested rational and fair while its critics are wily conspirators with selfish agendas This week Smriti Irani poured scorn on a journalist on Twitter accusing her of harbouring an agenda merely for doing her job The sharpest symptom of this pathology is the TV spokesperson or tweety bird who complains that the whole intolerance debate is on only because certain people cannot accept a certain person as prime minister Very true Such people exist But you know what When those in government were in the opposition they could not accept Manmohan Singh as prime minister either The man deserves a gallantry medal for surviving so many ad hominem attacks But that’s politics Politicians should be able to deal with it Goswami has summarily dismissed the BJP spokespersons’ boring spiel as “victimhood” but Sanskrit offers a clinically specific term: sparshakatarata – vulnerability to the touch If the BJP were to send a mother-serious telegram to the people it would read: “Don’t criticise only support” Or “Only caress please don’t hurt it’s intolerable” Tolerance thresholds also seem to have fallen in terms of time Rahul Gandhi’s question malfunction lasted maybe a couple of minutes Aamir Khan’s admission of a climate of insecurity took up a few minutes in a long interaction at the Ramnath Goenka Excellence in Journalism Awards ceremony Much later he had something even more interesting to say about the idea of the political self However the debate that followed has been restricted to the question and has been raging for days But then we are a tolerant nation We can tolerate any discussion about anything without any sense of proportion or irony Why we can even debate our commitment to the Constitution [email protected] For all the latest India News download
