If the United States and India were ever to make it Facebook official, their status would be: “It’s Complicated.” These two global behemoths may seem like close allies, especially judging by the warm welcome President Biden gave Prime Minister Modi during his White House visit in June, but in reality, they are anything but best friends.

During the Cold War era, India maintained a “strategically non-aligned” global status and it has tried to stay on the geopolitical fence since fall of the Soviet Union. But when Russia invaded Ukraine and Delhi refused to explicitly condemn Moscow, India’s self-proclaimed “multilateral” approach was severely tested.

On the show this week, a deep dive into the nation that recently surpassed China to become the most populous country on earth.
