“I declare this 3rd India-Africa Summit open.” The Indian prime minister Narendra Modi had made no attempt to conceal his pride when he symbolically lit the Hindu candelabra with its five branches on 26 October, under the attentive gaze of 40 African heads of state  and ministers. A record 44 heads of state and government of the 52 countries invited came to Delhi from 26 to 29 October for the biggest meeting of its kind in India in over 30 years. It was attended by the King of Morocco, Mohammed VI, as a guest of  honour,  accompanied by a delegation of 400 people, since Morocco is India’s top supplier of phosphates. Also present were the King of Swaziland, the Chairperson of the African  Union  Commission,  Dr  Nkosazana  Dlamini-Zuma,  the President of the Republic of Mali, Ibrahim Boubacar Keita, the Guinean president Alpha Condé, as well as the eternal Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe. “India and Africa represent one third of the world’s population, with a large majority of young people, said the Indian prime minister. The future of this energetic and talented youth will be the engine that will propel India and Africa to better  tomorrows.”
