The Biden Hariss Administration, a crucial opportunity for India, feels Jabong Co Founder Praveen Sinha

Biden Hariss

Ever since the civil nuclear deal was signed in 2008, India and the USA have enjoyed good relations. Subsequent administrations from both countries have worked hard to build a formidable relationship between the two countries and promote a partnership of mutual benefit and cooperation. “For the USA, India is the deterrent for China’s rising influence in Asia, and for India, the USA is a powerful ally to have in any altercations with its neighbors in Pakistan and China. This is a relationship that needs to sustain for a breakdown could have innumerous geopolitical connotations for both the nations, says Praveen Sinha Jabong Co-Founder. With the elections now out of the way, it is time to consider what the new Democrat administration could mean for India’s ambitions.

What does Biden Harris bring to the table?

Biden way back in 2006 outlined a vision for India US relations by saying that he feels that India and the USA will be the closest nations in the world. 14 years later he has the opportunity to be a man of his words. Biden was one of the senators who went a long way to convince members of both Democrats and Republicans to vote in favor of the Indo-US Nuclear Deal in 2008. Advocating India’s bid for a seat at the Security Council the Obama-Biden administration also declared India as a ‘Major Defence Partner’ and we can expect this cooperation to continue under the Biden Harris administration. A strong defense partnership with the United States is critical for Indian to counter any misadventures by China. However, a change in the White House has also prompted Pakistan and China to send out feelers to the USA, expecting a softer stance from the Biden-Hariss administration than the one led by Donald Trump.

Biden is also expected to relax the strict immigration laws the Trump-Pence administration brought into effect, providing huge relief to the thousands of Indians working in the United States of America. Biden has promised to integrate family-based immigration, increase the number of H1-B visas, and start fresh categories for highly skilled laborers.

India will also be expected to live up to the values of an ideal democracy, the common ideal between the two countries. Expect the Biden-Harris administration to raise some tough questions on J&K, the abolition of 370, CAA-NRC, etc. and India will have to find in itself the right posture to deflect these conversations as a matter of internal deliberation. How these differences are handled will prove to be key in how the relations between the two countries pan over the next 5 years and beyond, feels Jabong Co-Founder Praveen Sinha.

Conclusion

Over the last 4-5 US administrations, each president has postured towards strong relations with India, which means that the United States does want India in their corner.  There was tension in the air during the Pokhran Nuclear tests, but we managed to get through that without a severely bruised relationship. “In 2018-19, the USA also became India’s biggest trading partner, signifying just how important the relations are between the two. Enhancing our trading relationship and business ties with the USA is going to be a key factor in helping us avoid a post-pandemic slowdown. Their technology and vaccination knowhow will also be much needed going into 2021 when we begin to attempt mass vaccination drives to get rid of the virus from our society”, concluded Jabong Co-Founder Praveen Sinha

A Few Things to Check Before Hiring an Electrician

Hiring an Electrician

Many homeowners attempt to do home improvement projects themselves, and the results are often disappointing. However, trying to handle electrical work independently can lead to costly errors and injuries. Discover a few things to check before hiring an electrician to get the job done right and stay within the budget.

Proper Training

When looking for an electrician, the first thing to consider is whether they are properly trained. The electricians should attend a vocational school or other recognized institute to learn how to perform the work correctly. Discuss the training process to find the right team for the job.

Review Experience

Comparing electricians includes reviewing their relevant experience performing similar work. Homeowners should discuss the project scope with potential electricians and determine whether they have experience in that area. Also, ask for recommendations and referrals from previous satisfied customers.

Check Reviews

Once homeowners have a list of prospects, check online reviews to narrow down the possibilities based on customer experiences. Often, people discover more about an electrician or other service providers by reading reviews and talking to others. Also, discuss referrals with neighbors, co-workers, friends, and families to determine which services handled the work most efficiently.

Licensed and Insured

Verify your state’s requirement for license and insurance and then ensure the electrician is compliant to protect your most valuable asset. It is often tempting to hire an unlicensed or uninsured electrician to cut costs, but that often adds up to spending more money in the long run. Plus, you could be liable if an accident or injury occurs on your premises, adding even more to the costs.

Verify Credentials and Permits

The first step to verifying an electrician’s expertise is to inquire about licenses and insurance. The next step is to verify these credentials and permits to ensure they are valid and current. A quality electrician will immediately provide documentation for customers to verify.

Talk to Several Electricians

After comparing reviews and verifying credentials, consult with several electricians to find the right one for the project. While all of them might be qualified for the job, homeowners should find an electrician that understands their vision and wants to work with them every step of the way. Take notes during the interviews to review and determine the best candidate for the job.

Compare Costs

While qualifications are crucial to getting the job done correctly, homeowners must also stay within their budget to avoid financial stress associated with unexpected surprises. An electrician should provide a precise estimate and include everything to be done to complete the project for homeowners to plan for payment. The goal is to find a qualified electrician that provides all the services needed for the most competitive price. 

Look for Outstanding Customer Service

Finally, it helps to work with electricians dedicated to providing the highest level of customer service and that stand behind their work. Inquire about warranties and other guarantees to verify the project will be completed according to specifications. Then choose the electrician who communicates clearly and makes you feel comfortable about their skills.

Hiring an electrician is often critical to getting the job done right and avoiding additional costs related to injuries and errors. Use this checklist to find a qualified electrician that provides outstanding service within your budget.
