As the world searches for someone who fills the role established by TE Lawrence, that of a bridge-builder between the Western and Asian worlds, one who comes to mind ia writer Fareed Zakaria (born January 20, 1964). He is an Indian-born naturalized American journalist, author, and television host specializing in international relations, says Wikipedia.

Zakaria has appeared in virtually every medium and within multiple news agencies, with Forbes calling him "ubiquitous" as well as "omniscient" in the American media.[1]

Zakaria is regarded variously as a political liberal,[1][5] a neoconservative,[6], a conservative,[7] or a moderate.[8] He supported President Ronald Reagan in the past, but currently self-identifies as a "centrist".[6]

Zakaria is the author of From Wealth to Power: The Unusual Origins of America's World Role (Princeton, 1998), The Future of Freedom (Norton, 2003), and The Post-American World (2008).
