A very good article. I find it amusing that when the country is ridden with so many internal problems of Caste, Religion, Corruption, Literacy the higher officials find time to actually go behind strategic interests in the region. I am not saying that what they are doing is wrong, but that they are doing a great job. It is difficult to do a good job of both at the same time. But afterall that is what stragetists and diplomats are meant to do.

I would be very happy if they just brushed aside the US warnings and cared only about security of the gasline in Pakistan. It wouldn't be a very good policy to follow this, but still I have my own "hopes"

On the other hand the same money could have spent wisely on Primary Education and all the other pressing concerns of India.

I found these Rediff articles particularly good. They are interviews of Former Deputy NSA Satish Chandra.

I am very bad at remembering names. Let's see if I start to remember a few of these names by blogging.
