The Honourable Dr. Andrew Charlton MP recently released his book titled’ Australia’s Pivot to India” speaking volumes on Indo-Australian relationships and cultural political and traditional ties.
It was an interesting evening when Dr. Andrew Charlton and the MP released this 240-page book at Parramatta, Riverside theatre where Prime Minister Anthony Albanese was the chief guest who released the book.
While the release function was on, I was very keen to flip the pages of the book, where I found a treasure of information researched and presented . The book as being separated into four parts titled Acquaintances, Friends, Family, and Partners, each has many interesting chapters.
His preface very clearly states the purpose of the book, emphasising the importance of having and healthy, long-standing relationship with India.
He foresees the Indian connections as vital and mentions three – “C” s the Commonwealth, Curry, and Cricket, and four – “D” s Democracy, Defence, Dosti ( friendship), and Diaspora as a pivot.
The book mentions the ancient geological discontinuities and quotes scientists to establish evidence about human links between India and Australia.
He states that his previous visit to India was to launch a book on global economics. The front cover flashes the picture of Indian and Australian prime ministers, and the back cover has the smiling author. He is confident that India is set to become the next global superpower where its population plays a predominant role and will exceed the US and China combined in 2050.
He welcomes to embraces the opportunities for collaboration and cooperation in multiple areas to strengthen the security and prosperity of Australia.
The Riverside Theatre was full of party members, the Indian diaspora, and celebrities.
