The "2+2" dialogue between the foreign and defence ministers of India and the US, S Jaishankar and Rajnath Singh and Mike Pompeo and Mark Esper is taking place in Delhi on October 26-27, and bar a last-minute hitch, the Americans are flying down to Delhi to participate in an in-person meeting with their Indian counterparts. One week later, the US goes to the polls to elect a new President and if the media is to be believed, Donald Trump will give way to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. ThePrint's National & Strategic Affairs editor Jyoti Malhotra says that Delhi is preparing for a new America, but that under the Modi-Trump dispensation, the two establishments created a synergy that will unlikely be replicated anytime soon.
