At the time, wasn’t India a Soviet client?

It pains me that India and the United States did not form an early and strong partnership after Indian Independence.

Yes India had many problems, but more potential and desire to fix them than countries such as Pakistan.

Why we armed Pakistan to India’s detriment still escapes me.

For India’s part, why they sucked up to the USSR and were so often hostile is also a mystery.

Putting the past behind, I’d be comfortable with India being the primary power in the Indian Ocean, and being aligned with the U.S.
