PRESIDENT BUSH ARRIVES in India today to pursue one of his longtime foreign policy objectives: bringing the United States and India closer. It's a worthy goal. India is the world's largest democracy, and its economy is growing. And although the White House doesn't want to draw too much attention to old-school realpolitik, India is in a strategically important neighborhood, sharing borders with China and Pakistan. But the price Bush has paid for closer ties with India is too high.

But after weeks of unpleasant distractions and sagging approval ratings at home, Bush departs today for a rare place where he and the U.S. remain popular: India.

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice met Wednesday with top officials in India and Pakistan, discussing a range of contentious issues that included the desire of the rival South Asian neighbors to buy advanced F-16 fighter jets from the United States. India, which has been moving closer to the U.S. after relying on Russian military supplies for decades, wants to buy the warplanes but opposes Pakistan's long-standing request to replenish its own fleet of F-16s.

sinban, india -- The wind farm is visible from miles away, a forest of looming turbines churning in the afternoon breeze, rising incongruously above fields of barley, corn and sunflowers. "This is the only future for the long term," says Tulsi Tanti, 49, a onetime yarn manufacturer who turned a small wind-energy sideline into the sprawling corporation Suzlon Energy, and turned himself into a billionaire in the process.

India signed five deals Friday to purchase more than $7 billion in hardware and expertise from Russia, including an aircraft carrier, a fleet of MIG-29 fighters, defense and space technology and at least 12 civilian nuclear reactors. On the minds of both parties, analysts said, was a nation not present at the signing. "China will be the ghost in the room," wrote analyst C. Raja Mohan in an opinion piece this week in the Indian Express. Having a working aircraft carrier -- India's only carrier, the 50-year-old British-built Viraat, rarely leaves port -- should allow India to expand its presence in the Indian Ocean.
