This week on Sinica, Kaiser and Jeremy grab Ananth Krishnanin, correspondent for India's national newspaper The Hindu, and drag him into our studio for a discussion of the state of Sino-Indian relations. In particular, we're curious why Sino-Indian relations seem to have warmed up after the election of Narendra Modi despite the new Prime Minister's seemingly nationalist agenda.

Enjoy Sinica? Even if you can't find India or China on the map, we'd still love to hear your suggestions on important topics you'd like to hear covered. So if there's a topic you'd like to hear us cover, send us an email at and let us know. And please also feel welcome to download this show as a standalone mp3 file, or subscribe to our list of shows using our custom RSS feed.
