The domestic political culture in India determines whether India will work out in its new role as a nuclear power. ++ So far, suspicion and accusation among the politicians hindered India's democratic institutions to produce a coherent notion of national purpose. ++ External actors such as China and the US have again and again manipulated the preferences of India's politicians. ++ But now it is about time to develop a strong and independent national agenda which takes the responsibilities of a nuclear nation-state into account.
