Mrs.Clinton tangos in India

Diplomatic test for Clinton in India(Read full story here...)

I hope Mrs.Clinton's recent visit to India visit was
beneficial & ushers a new chapter of symbiotic(pun intended) relation for both countries involved. US is known for its self-centered view & India is more than well known for its stupid & short-sighted outlook! It is an open secret why US is building up trade ties with India.

I lay out
these for the less informed souls. India's economic growth, stable stock market(times when the entire world is discussing depression & economic meltdown), abundant cheap educated labor pool & lets not forget the most important point - being one of the biggest defence spenders are reason enough to solicit India.

Having said that the War-on-Terror seems to be heading in directions unimagined even by the worst Hollywood scriptwriters. To add to their woes the coffin count is heading northwards. US wants India to pitch-in & play some key role in stabilizing the region. The so-called hunt for Mr.Laden who according to US intelligence is cooling around in some Bin is proof enough of how dedicated & serious they are with this agenda!

So coming back to the point of this post, here is Mrs. Clinton touring India to garner support (& business). She talks about how
important it is to maintain & build relations with a country like India!!! She goes on to make a mockery of India's stupid & wood-brained people by saying "Pakistan is making the necessary & right moves and India should be patient with its dealing with Pakistan"!!! Sound bytes like these & thought too by a senior US parliamentarian on Indian soil is like a tight slap on the face of all self-respecting Indians. Having said this, the Indian media & politicians lapped up these (& more similar ridiculous) comments by her showing a total disrespect towards the very Indian feeling - if I may say so.

It is time for Indians(politicians & others) to stop bending backwards to the whims & wishes of countries like US & demand what is due to them, have courage to stand tall & dictate terms on equal grounds while negotiating trade & other important issues! Only if the powers that be start behaving in a self-respecting fashion will this country be truly independent & not be exploited by super-powers!

May each & every Indian note that if there is a will of this sort, there will come a way to lead India out of the developing country status & thus begin a new chapter towards being a true Super-Power.

  1. I am surely in support of this article, especially regarding the India's stand at the negotiating table. We represent more than 17% of world population but not a permanent member in UN Security Council. There are scores of issues where India lacks the respect and position it deserves. Our spineless leadership, esp. congress leadership should start getting rid of 'slavery' mentality.
