Americans have come through in India’s hour of need. As have the Europeans, Russians and our neighbours. The mobilisation of aid is unprecedented, the outpouring of goodwill overwhelming, and the urgency to help India beat this ferocious pandemic deeply felt.It’s like a dam burst. The US administration, members of Congress, corporate titans, Americans, in general, and Indian-Americans, in particular, are doing their part to bolster India’s response against the rampaging virus. Joe Biden also recorded a major policy shift to support a call by India and South Africa for a waiver of intellectual property (IP) protection on vaccines.That has put Europeans on edge. Charges that Americans are grandstanding are flying fast and thick, especially because the US hasn’t shared vaccines. There’s some merit in the argument, but not enough for Europe not to do the right thing.Here in Washington, I am told Biden went beyond the advice of aides and gave India a ‘blank cheque’ to ask for whatever was needed after an ‘extremely warm call’ with Narendra Modi.
