India, like other large countries, hopes its own vaccine, Covaxin, can help the nation find routes to international trade and economic cooperation amid regional hostilities. The West is observing the world’s largest democracy and starting to believe that it can become a counterbalancing force to China’s rising regional influence and power. Vishal Rana, Parth Patel, Syed Mohyuddin, and Prajit Deb write about the geopolitical implications of New Delhi’s “Vaccine Maitri” initiative, which the government hopes will help India become an integral part of the new world order.
