    That two countries, India and the United States of America, with so much in common should have drifted apart for so long has baffled many. Of course, there are reasons for it, but there are equally compelling arguments in favour of forging better ties. Perhaps the most important factor contributing to the drift has been the inability of the two to identify common interests. Both have been seized by many misconceptions; both have tended to look upon their mutual relations in the context of third countries. As things are today, a reappraisal of their policies towards one another should not present insurmountable difficulties. In fact, it would be logical to get on to a new course, which could lead to co-operation in the fulfilment of common objectives.
