The July-August dossier covers only recent political developments in India, including the Monsoon Session of Indian Parliament and the failed motion against the Modi government, the passing away of two political stalwarts from the north and south of India, the deluge in Kerala, and the paralysis within the nascent yet formidable Aam Aadmi Party.

The analysis of foreign policy developments includes a focus on Premier Modi’s trip to three African nations, the visit by South Korean President to India and the visit of the Chinese Defence Minister to India. A preview of the first edition of the 2+2 Indo-USA Strategic Dialogue is included. As part of South Asian relations, Premier Tsering Tobgay’s visit to India is briefly covered.
