As relations between the United States and India rise to a new level, with the March 2 agreement on civil nuclear cooperation, the time has come for a lively discussion concerning this partnership.

The Old Dominion University Center for Regional and Global Study will present a lecture and discussion by Nalini Kant Jha, professor of international politics at India's Pondicherry Federal University, titled "America's Relationship with India: What Has President Bush Accomplished?" His talk, which starts at 1 p.m. Wednesday, March 15, in the Isle of Wight Room of Webb University Center, will address the partnership between the United States and India and issues regarding nuclear weapons.
