What India Hopes to Achieve at BRICS Summit

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is flying to Brazil, drawn not by the football world cup fever, but to face his first diplomatic test on a global stage - the sixth annual BRICS conference. 

The BRICS summit - a multilateral forum of the emerging economies of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa - will be the first occasion that the Prime Minister will be sharing stage with world leaders after he assumed office in May. 

The summit will last over two days and will be held in the cities of Fortaleza and Brasilia in Brazil, just after the country finishes hosting the football world cup on Sunday.
