India faces west

October 1949
America;10/29/1949, Vol. 82 Issue 4, p91
The author reflects on the visit of Jawaharlal Nehru, Prime Minister of India to the U.S. in October 1949. The hesitant opinion of Americans towards India such as its admiration for some tenets of communism and its animosity towards capitalism are presented as well as the reassessment of India on its views towards the U.S. after the visit. The author concludes that the industrial technology and commercial cooperation the U.S. will extend to India may raise a democratic foundation against the threat of communism in Asia.
