Come Carpentier de Gourdon is Convener of the Editorial Board of the World Affairs Journal.
He explains, in an exquisite TV interview, the civilizational socio-economic-cultural imperative of the Indian Ocean Community. This Community like the European Community can contribute to a phenomenal multiplier effect in taking forward the growth of the nations of the Community. NaMo has to take the Community forward with India contributing to the realities of Trans_Asian Railway and Highway Networks, management of Himalayan rivers (Irawati, Salween, Mekong, Brahmaputra flowing through the region) and leveraging the Space and IT technological prowess of India for the benefit of the Community as a Free Trade Zone and working towards Mudra as a common currency. The largest Vishnu temple of the globe is NOT in India but in AngkorWat, Cambodia.
Congratulations, Come Carpentier de Gourdon for an exquisite short presentation in the lucid interview highlighting the dialogue of civilizations.
Creation of the Indian Ocean Community as United Indian Ocean States will be a celebration of the remembered memory of Dharma-Dhamma continuum so beautifully documented in the magnum opus of the French Epigraphist George Coedes, titled Histoire ancienne des États hindouisés d'Extrême-Orient, 1944 Ancient History of Hinduised States of Greater Orient. Collective will of the people of the Indian Ocean Rim can make this United Indian Ocean States a reality as an engine for unpredecented socio-economic growth and cultural renaissance with strong civilizational foundations.
