India''s security and warrants India to opt for extreme measures to
safeguard its security.
and Pakistan should have an arrangement by which all contentious issues
could be settled across the table..(approximating to the European Union
)., taking into account the cultural identity of both the nations nurtured bycenturies old cultural history and common language . Hence , this alone should be the graceful course to be adopted for resolving disputes.
But if Pakistan, with or without Musharraf''s blessing, leashes another
adventure, we have to wake up for ground realities and History is
governed by these facts. The
creation of Pakistan itself was unnatural and artificial. Ultimately,
nature asserts itself and directs the course of history.

The author refers to a dialogue he had with a Chinese diplomat, QUAN QICHEN( (who subsequently became the VICE Premier of CHINA).. In a casual talk with him he had mentioned about his open letter written to Nawaz Sheriff after the Kargil War, around July,1999. In

remain indifferent to a nuclear power divided by civil war.
Hence any cross border adventure by Pakistan will land it in great
trouble and will obviously be risking its future. This would result
in balkanization., Baluchistan and parts of NWFP could break away;
leaving Punjab and Sind in Pakistanand such a diminished Pakistan cannot survive for long.
President Musharraf needs to do some hard thinking.
The Indian government, and Indians in general, wish Pakistan stability and peace. WE hope he will not act to convert his friends into enemies.konthai
