'Indo-US ties back on rails as Modi, Obama take ownership'

India’s relationship with the US is back on the rails with the US president Barack Obama and Prime Minister Narendra Modi taking its ownership, former Indian ambassador Meera Shankar has said and noted that the outcomes during Obama’s visit last month were marked by pragmatism as well as convergence. Obama’s visit to India Jan 25-27 was marked by several firsts. He is the first US president to visit India twice while in office, the first to be chief guest at Republic Day parade and the first to do a joint radio broadcast with the Indian prime minister. "The relationship is now back on the rails. (These are) leaders who are taking ownership focused on broader strategic aspect," Shankar said at the discussion organised by the Indo-American Friendship Association.
