Today’s News

India has made it crystal clear with its intent to reshape the world’s order as a 19-ton statue depicting the revered Hindu god Shiva set to greet world leaders at the Group of 20 (G20) summit this week was simply hard to miss. Standing at 28-feet (8.5 meters) tall and forged with renowned metals such as gold, silver and iron, the Nataraja dancing figure is an appropriate icon for the summit host, Narendra Modi.

All eyes are on Modi as he intends to turn the G20 summit into a branding statement to establish India’s geopolitical importance — underscoring India’s emergence as a key voice on the world stage.

The country’s diplomats now face a race against time to broker tangible multilateral outcomes at this weekend’s G20 leaders’ summit in New Delhi that will mark the end of India’s year-long presidency of the bloc of leading industrialized and developing economies.

India has so far not been able to foster consensus for a venture from the previous G20 meetings in other major tracks that it has convened. Member states haven’t been able to agree on definitive action due largely to Russia’s and China’s objections to the language referring to the Ukraine crisis.
