From Truman's remark to now, it has been a long journey. India and the US, which share common values and should have been friends, found themselves caught in a dysfunctional cycle of resentment and mistrust for the first few decades following Indian independence. In A Matter of Trust, author Meenakshi Ahamed reveals the personal prejudices and insecurities of the leaders, and the political imperatives, that so often cast a shadow over their relationship.

Meenakshi Ahamed is a freelance journalist and has written on American foreign policy for publications such as Foreign PolicyThe Asian AgeThe Wall Street JournalThe Washington Post and Seminar. She was the London correspondent for NDTV from 1989-1996. Meenakshi holds a post-graduate degree from the School of Advanced International Studies, Johns Hopkins University, in development economics and public health. She is based in Washington, DC and New York City.

Ahamed will be in conversation with Edward Luce, a columnist and US national editor of the Financial Times based in DC and author of several books, including In Spite of the GodsThe Rise of Modern India . He appears frequently on BBC and MSNBC.
