"Palpable Realism"

Nitin Pai over at The Acorn has published an interesting essay,
"Palpable Realism", that argues India has recognised that morality in foreign policy lies in the pursuit of the national interest.

What is also important to note is that India's foreign policy, grounded in a clear set of understandings about what constitutes India's "national interest", is also "consistent with general public opinion." It might be interesting to compare some of the conclusions that Daniel Drezner reaches in his forthcoming TNI essay about public opinion and U.S. foreign policy and see whether or not they apply in the Indian case.
