It’s Springtime for U.S.-India Relations

wsj.com — On Monday President Barack Obama becomes the first American president to preside as the chief guest at India's Republic Day parade, an annual spectacle that celebrates the country's democracy by showcasing its cultural diversity and military might. Before Mr. Obama leaves New Delhi Tuesday, the U.S.

Violent Jain extremism

aei.org — Each of us probably had our favorite part in President Obama's State of the Union address the other night.
