When it comes to reporting any other country’s policy initiative or some socio-economic agenda, it automatically gets politicized in other country's media. Given the importance of role that media play at sub-regional, regional and inter-regional platform; it becomes quite inevitable for media to provide accurate and objective information to their readers. China’s One Belt One Road(OBOR) initiative is one such initiative which frequently feature in Indian print media that had shaped the firsthand view of Indian common people about this initiative. Given the size and impact of this initiative, it is imperative for academia to critically examine the reportage done by Indian print media – Here Times of India and The Hindu, and try to understand India’s perception on One Belt One Road(OBOR).
