India decoupled from the world now?

India is eyeing 9% growth when growth prospecs in the US and other advanced economies are uncertain. Fiscal and monetary policies have been tightened over the past several months in India. In the advanced economies, the stimulus vs austerity debate has not died down. Is India getting decoupled in the present situation? Maybe. We got couple in 2009 because of panic outflows of capital. In today's uncertain condition, the same sort of capital outflow appears unlikely. So we may steam ahead regardless of what happens in the advanced economies.
