This week on NL Hafta, Newslaundry’s Manisha Pande, Raman Kirpal, Jayashree Arunachalam and Anand Vardhan are joined by Suhasini Haidar, diplomatic affairs editor at the Hindu

The discussion focuses on Narendra Modi’s visit to the US, the media spectacle surrounding it, his rare press conference, and what it was like when previous Indian prime ministers went to America. 

On the US’s keenness to better ties with India, Suhasini says, “The US is increasingly seeing itself in rivalry with China. And India is the only country in this region with the size and ability to be part of a coalition that stops Chinese hegemony.”

The panel also discusses key headlines of the week, including the disappearance of the Titan submersible and the arrest of Tamil Nadu minister Senthil Balaji.

Tune in.
