As US is forced to make strategic adjustments in the Asia-Pacific, there is a growing debate in India over the future of its foreign policy. In the last decade India clearly tilted towards the US but as America re-balances in Asia, India seems to be reconsidering its strategic tilt. Nowhere is this more evident than in the domestic debate in India, especially between those who consider USA's re-balancing as a strategic concern and those who see it as a strategic opportunity. Insofar as domestic debates are precursors to shifts in actual policy, mapping various possible trajectories as they are discussed in the domestic space are likely to provide an understanding of future shifts in Indian foreign policy.
