India gains from soft power in SE Asia

China may have penetrated Southeast Asian markets on the strength of its financial muscle but India's attempts to use its soft power to revive historical links with the region appear to be bearing fruit, reports The Times of India.

A recent conclave drew youths from all ten members of Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) and this was followed by the successful first-ever Indo-ASEAN artists camp in Udaipur as well as Indo-ASEAN music festival in Delhi last week.

 The camp featured prominent artists from all member states as did the music festival, which saw some of the musical troupes participating outside their country for the first time.
