Pakistan and India Take Baby Steps Toward Rapprochement

    Pakistan has been trying to undermine India for the past 60 years without much success. Now when you can’t do much when India is the world’s 10th largest economy and has the 10th largest defense budget, will you find it any easier in 2020 when India becomes the world’s 5th largest economy with a military to match or in 2030 when it may rise to the 3rd spot ? Hopefully some in the Pakistani establishment will start thinking along these lines and change course. This obsession with India is ultimately ruining Pakistan.

    The Pakistani PM visited India on 30 March 2012 to watch the World Cup Cricket Semi Final. He was invited by the Indian PM. They watched the game together. India beat Pakistan in a ripper of a game. http://www.espncricinfo.com/icc_cricket_worldcup2011/content/story/508239.html

    Sorry, I meant 30 March 2011

    this is like a groundhog day. though unfortunately not much of a comedy.

    this “start” is nothing new. in the last 15 years – there were 4 such starts. the last three successively were disrupted due to kargil war, parliament attack and 26/11.

    so it not a question whether the latest one will be of any success ?
    – it will until the time it fails.
    or how long will it last?
    -until the next terror attack. pakistan so far hasn’t shown any indication of dealing with the terrorists. it is just a matter of time till the next one happens .

    the real question is how long indian politicians can afford to use their political capital in this game of running in circles.
