ABSTRACT:
Foreign policy means a policy pursued by a nation in its dealings with other nations, designed to achieve its national objectives. This is the same in the case of India also. However, the quintessential strands of India’s foreign policy are peaceful co-existence, non-interference, peaceful resolution of disputes, non-alignment, anti-colonialism, anti-racism, multilateralism, pluralism, general and complete disarmament, opposition to all forms of terrorism, extremism and fundamentalism and pro-development. In recent decades, India has pursued a more expansive foreign policy that encompasses the neighborhood first policy embodied by SAARC as well as the Look East policy to forge more extensive economic and strategic relationships with other East Asian countries. This article has explored the major continuities and changes that had been happened in India’s foreign policy since its independence.
