It ‘s true that fight with Pakistan weakening the country in all the fields we may think of. Heavy drainage of fund, weakening international position, constant loss of life of our soldiers and common innocent citizens, and of course there is a never ending terrorism–I do not think this will ever stop.
This means we and our children have to learn to live under constant insecurity for next 100 years. This uncomfortable products of partition of India not only damaging /destabilizing India, it has produced terrorism for the whole world. The boundary was demarcated –now looks carelessly, only with a notice of one month, by a surveyor who never visited India before or after. Who knows if demarcation were done more carefully, perhaps, perhaps, today’s border disputes would have been avoided.
Better still it would be good if there were no partition at all. If there were no partition there would not be any Pakistan, with no Pakistan there would not be any border, with no border there would not be any war with Pakistani, there would not be any terrorism and many other ills that are afflicting us. I have a fear that enmity with pakistan ultimately may lead to nuclear war destroying India and the world …………….
