When thinking of the ties between the United States and the rest of the world I rarely think of India. I knew very little about the country so the very little research I've done has been an interesting task. I know India has a lot to offer especially with such a booming economy, but it made me wonder what benefit the United States gains from acquiring a tie with the country. I dont really know why or how the Indian community became involved with the United Stetes but it might be greatly influenced by the huge amount of job opportunities in the United States and the "promise of a gretater life."
After reading the Wikipedia entry for India I quickly learned of its colorful culture and traditions. I learned of the country's demographics, for example, India has an estimated population of 1,186,665,000. But most importantly, I learned of it's financial growth and its nuclear testing called Operation Smiling Buddha. India ha been involved in neuclear testing since 1974 and since then has become a neuclear power hence becoming a threat to the United States. Its promising economy is rapidly booming and the United States might be interested in joining that market and through that providing greater variety to the United States. Now I have two HUGE reasons to why the United States to become involved with India. But besides that, much of the information provided by Wikipedia was useless to my research paper. Information such as sports played in India, its flowers, animals, food, anthem, emblem, fruits, states and terretories are irrelevant. The one section that was most relevant to my task was about a paragraph long and mentioned a tie between the United States and India but failed to provide a working link.
