During the Cold War somehow India became allied with Soviet Union.
The U.S. Ambassador to India Daniel P. Moynihan blamed much of it on the inlfluence of the British Fabian Society which promoted peaceful socialism.
Today, the Indians and the Americans share at least five major common features:
1) They are free market economies,
2) They are pluralist,
3) They are large sub-continental societies
4) They are English-speaking,5) They are democratic.
For this economic pundit this adds up to --- after the U.S. --- "Buy India."
