The most recent example is the visit of Indian National Security Advisor Ajit Doval and Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar to Myanmar. The visit was planned secretly and both the officials reached Myanmar last week as part of an expanding engagement with the new leadership there.
India wants to have a close relationship with the new government in Myanmar and the visit of National Security Advisor and Foreign Secretary is significant in this context.
Before that Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar quietly visited China on June 16-17. The objective of the visit was to convince Chinese leadership and get support for India's bid for Nuclear Suppliers Group membership.
That meeting was considered a success and since then quiet diplomacy has become the norm for the Modi government.
"Quiet diplomacy has been used by various governments and it was frequently used during the Cold War era. Presently back channel diplomacy or track two diplomacy is frequently used by different countries. Modi is resorting to quiet diplomacy to attain the desired objective in a peaceful manner, in fact the government thinks that the forces which are against the government will create hurdles if the diplomatic parleys are publicized," former diplomat Nigam Prakash told Sputnik.
