This book provides an extensive analysis of the age-old friendship between two important South Asian powers and geographically destined neighbors-India and Bhutan. It examines the course of relationship and the policy issues between India and Bhutan and identifies and analyzes the changing dynamics between the two post independence. The book attempts to highlight the attitudinal and perceptional change that has taken place in the behaviour of both the nations after 2007 with the renewal of the Treaty of 1947 between the two which provided a base for the initiation of relationship between the two. It explores the graph of economic interaction between the two which has actually provided a boost to their beautiful relationship. It also examines Bhutan’s move of opening itself to the external world and its implications for India. This book also investigates the role which soft power has played in cementing the age-old ties between the two. This book is therefore an attempt to highlight the major areas of cooperation between the Himalayan kingdom and world’s most vibrant democratic nation in South Asia along with focus on major irritants between the two so that one could understand how two asymmetrical nations can really be good partners.
