Let us prepare for the rather uncertain times aheadNo one really knows that will happen to the relations between the USA and China when the new President takes over. There are indications that the Democratic party will be a lot different from the Trump era and hence China need not be the big monster that it has been painted to be, in the eyes of the USA. It ought to be remembered that Mr. Biden is not sold on the idea of CAA and the accompanying stuff. The relationship between Mr. Biden and Mr. Modi is likely to be more at a Government-Government level and not at the personal level.
Economic compulsions might force the USA to develop far better relationships with most of the world and this includes African countries that are unlikely to open up big markets in around a decade from now. In India, the dismantling of the social security net is clearly seen, with contractual employment bound to become the order of the day, even at some managerial levels. The Modi administration is so keen to emphasize the "ease of doing business". even if that means a big smashing of middle-class lifestyles.
Unless the BJP is voted out of power, this radical style of reform is likely to continue. Mass protests like what is now happening with the farmers are likely to happen more often than never before. We rather become prepared by saving whatever we can to see through the difficult times. And safely pack off our children to the West, where higher education is possible. They can be effective NRIs and still invest in India. After all, most of Kerala's economy revolves around money coming from the Gulf. There is nothing wrong with this policy, as this will offer employment to those who stay back in India.
