  1. 'Missionaries from India introduced new beliefs and ideas in South East Asia'….False….There were never any Hindu 'missionaries' spreading 'Hinduism'…There is no 'conversion' in Sanatana Dharma (Hindusim). People from other parts of the world heard about and came to India, the richest land on the planet for over two millennia and during their travels took back with them, the philosophies, traditions and culture of India back to their home lands. Hinduism is the oldest spiritual practice in the world. For once, take off your Christian/jewish/muslim glasses and try to view the world.

  2. Modi government has build kilometers of electricity lines , optic fibre ,railways, bridges and roads in north east and it is also subverting militant groups by peace process and military processes.

  3. Şirvan please find a good narrator. I watch and appreciate all your videos but you sound like you whisper and we can’t pronounce English so well. Let’s face it…

  4. you are right about the indian position, but u are wrong about asian viewing india has a counterweight. asia is under no illusion that india is no match for china. strictly speaking asia only care about US and China. Russia, Japan and India are only regarded as secondary powers. because of India's domestic weakness, India is unable to use it domestic market to influence Asia like China can, most Asian countries export 4 to 5 time the amount to China as they do to India. India is simply to vurneable to open its market to trade, many ASEAN businesses are ahead of India's and they would crush Indian companies if they lose their home market, so while India like to extend its influence, it is really at the limit of what it can afford to bet… the Indian are well aware of it, as is the rest of Asia…

    in fact the only interesting player right now is Japan as many believe Japan will finally concede to Russia to reduce Chinese influence there…. the Japanese's "look north" policy is therefore more credible then the Indian's "act east", because what can India really do? it navy and airforce is limited compare to China. and even if India build road into ASEAN, it only intergrate NE India closer into the chinese sphere of influence than to boost it connectivity to the core of India. what is more is this corridor is actually part of China's plan for Belt Road Initiative. thus isn't it a concession that the Chinese is right about how to intergrate Asia?

  5. World democracies must support india to safeguard rule of law & democracy in asia. Rougue nations like South Korea, Pakistan , china is a evil axis which donot belive in rule of law will cause WW3. If not wakeup today.

  6. Being an Indian Citizen living the UAE, India is never gonna be a Superpower till Extremists like Modi, sitting on high positions are overthrown!

    Modi is a Hindu Extremist backed by Hindu Terrorists like RSS.

    The economic liberalisation, privatisation Shervan is talking about ws done by the Secular yet Progressive Indian National Congress Govt. Modi and all his policies have been nothing more than failures

    I urge the Community to research and critcise Modi as soon as possible

    India is dying, only the World can rescue us from this extremist modi!

  7. Coming from a Canadian, I hope that my country does better relations with India as opposed to China. Do business with China, but be weary of China, they are not your ally they are your enemy. The only reason they don't actively try and invade, or any other thing like that, is so that they can steal what you have over time.

  8. As an Indian, it saddens me to say that the future of India looks bleak. The primary deterrent to India's growth is the HUGE illiterate population that is further expanding. Particularly, the bulk of this population expansion is raising from the Ganga basin where India is truly at its worst. Women are still pumping babies out at at-least 4-5 per women while men continue to dominate society leading to a huge deficit in ALL the development factors. At the current rates, population from these backward states will constitute more than 75% of the entire population of the nation, while more developed and forward states become the minorities. This problem is all too familiar in big diverse nations, and this single population factor will lead (and is leading) to a massive drain in it's funds. Some states already give up to 40% their tax revenues and all of this is drained into the stink-holes up North. Of course, we have a myriad of other problems – corruption, incapable leaders, lack of oil, all bundled together with an incapable government (with only 2 major powers).
    All in all, India's future cannot change until some high level politician addresses the real issues of population and illiteracy. But as any true government, politicians only act in their self interest – No one talks about population control, since a) More people from a state means a bigger representation of their constituency b) they will fall out of favour when they talk about such sensitive issues. India will continue to grow more populous, while the gap between the rich and poor continues to widen.
    I do not see a better future for India till someone can stress on the importance of education, and sadly I do not see any one stepping up to do that role either. Politicians instead will continue to try to garner votes based on castism and religionism – not much different from how the British ruled India!

  9. India first needs to stop trying to make Bangladesh an annex State. Treat Bangladesh as an equal. Treatment with Kashmir needs to improve. A Union like economic policy with Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bhutan, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Maldives.

  10. India is the Tiger of Asia 🐅🐅🇮🇳🐅🐅
    India will rise again and expand its power again. India must spread its culture and religion again in the world. LOVE AND RESPECT INDIA FROM AUSTRALIA 🇦🇺❤️🇮🇳

  11. After US done with China, India should next, India grows as much as China, even more, we can not afford let India become another China before act!

  12. Nice video Caspian Report! Can you do a Geopolitics of the Caribbean??? I am curious to know what benefits/ challenges face the Greater Antilles (Cuba/Hispaniola/Puerto Rico/Jamaica)

  13. You're probably aware, but Malcolm Turnbull (shown at 7:55 in video) was ousted as Prime Minister in an internal leadership spill (within his party). Yeah, this has happened a lot in Australia over recent years. The new Prime Minister is Scott Morrison. Even though it was Peter Dutton who initialised the spill. There's a joke about that:
    "Knock-knock"
    "Who's there?"
    "Peter…"
    "…Peter who?""Scott Morrison!"
