ABSTRACT
The strategic location of Afghanistan at crossroads of Central Asia and South Asia is itself defining the importance of Afghan factor in India-Central Asia relations. Afghanistan, one time a buffer state between British India and Soviet Union, has shaped the post-9/11 India foreign policy to stabilize Afghanistan through Low Politics Approach (LPA) for regional integration and stability. India's growing interest in CARs through the embedded policy of economic, energy and strategic synergy benefitting both, has further enhanced the Afghan factor in relation between the two for common interests and concerns in the region. The focus of this paper is to understand the common concerns both India and Central Asia have on Afghanistan as well as importance of Afghan peace for the regional stability. The argument is further elaborated to explain India's policy towards Central Asia.
