Re: Indian Foreign Policy

Whatever else Bose/Patel would have done as PM, one thing for sure is that they would not have appointed their sister to a key post as Ambassador to the USA.

That appointment speaks volumes about Nehru's commitment to 'democratic ideals'

Re: 26/11/2008: Never Forget. Never Forgive

MSA was Union Minister in 2008 -- I suspect any intelligence/security information that he received would surely have been passed to Pakistan. Most likely the same with information that went to VP Ansari.

Congress types like Antulay, I believe, were already blaming "Saffron Terror"

Re: Indus Water Treaty

In 1960, the WB was in a position to punish India if India was found to have violated the provisions of the treaty. India was dependent on WB aid. Also, WB jobs were a huge carrot for Indian IAS officers.

Not sure how the WB can punish India these days.

This was reciprocated by Nehru’s daughter, Indira Gandhi, who sent spares for Israeli Mystere and Ouragon aircraft and AMX-13 tanks in 1967.
