Re: 2020 Strategic and Political Analysis-1

I think banning it abruptly will cause a lot of problems. This has to be done gradually so that the Indian economy can adjust. Aapki hamesha phati huyee kyon rahti hai? It's a good thing that Modi/Shah don't listen to posters like you and rush into something without thinking it through completely.

Play hardball and impose our will commensurate to our size to make Nepal fall in line. 3. Put up with their nonsense every few weeks. China is doing 1 (...

Amid all the masala headlines, it is hard to comprehend, at least for me.
