\I have been looking around and haven't found out the real reason yet. If I do I will post here.

A direct fallout of the US establishments' refusal to acknowledge the return of the Indian right and its cussed refusal to not grant a visa to the PM front-runner Mr Narendra Modi, even as the UK, Australia and EU were re-establishing contacts broken off by following the US's cue in 2005.

Mr Modi has been insulted by the State Dept's gratuitous announcements that he would not be given a Visa even though he had never applied for one. Mr Modi does not forget easily and though American businesses are welcomed warmly in Gujarat (the state of which he is curently the Chief Minister), the official relationship is likely to be formal. In contrast, the Chinese laid out the red carpet for him on his visits there and so did the Japanese, with the Singapore PM some kind of mentor. The Israelis are also old friends and collaborators, having supplied desert farming techniques to Gujarat and hosting him more than once.

In contrast, the liberals in the US ganged up to insult him and last year, lefties at Wharton even managed to get a video address from him on the Indian economy cancelled.

Even more interesting, although I'm not sure why that would cause an ambassador to resign - unless she was implicated in the visa denial (which is possible; a visa for a national figure probably has to be personally approved by the ambassador).
