Looking East to Look West: Lee Kuan Yew's Mission India

Looking East to Look West

When P.V. Narasimha Rao and Manmohan Singh launched India’s ‘Look East’ policy, it was only the first stage of the strategy to foster economic and security cooperation with the United States. But ‘Looking East’ became an end in itself, and Singapore a valid destination, largely because of Lee Kuan Yew. He had been trying since the 1950s to persuade India's leaders that China would steal a march on them if they neglected domestic reform and ignored a region that India had influenced profoundly in ancient times. With his deep understanding of Indian life, close ties with India's leaders from Jawaharlal Nehru on, and sound grasp of realpolitik, Lee never tired of stressing that Asia would be ‘submerged’ if India did not ‘emerge’.
