Our obsession with Pakistan

Once again Indian government and electronic media is going overboard with the so called democratic revolution in Pakistan. Nawaz Sharif is touted as a great friend of India who started peace process with Atal Bihari government in 1999 (and crippled it with Kargil attack shortly there after). All this started when a particular English news channel, which normally acts as govt. mouthpiece, began feeding news about Pakistan elections, sent their star reporter to interview Sharif, who was quick enough to take advantage of all the free publicity he was getting. This will now give another boost to 
people like the caustic congress representative frequently appearing on channels, and likes of him involved in Aman Ki Asha like programs to have another round of free lunches and site seeing trips to Pakistan and get some free publicity at home.

Going by the past history all this will continue till Pakistan either directly or through their proxies will commit another terror attack on some soft target in our country. Only then the tide will swing in totally opposite direction with electronic media berating 
govt. inaction and govt sending dossiers and proofs to Pakistan and world community begging them for action against those perpetuated terror attacks on us and no body giving them a second glance.

Pakistan and the rest of the world has clearly understood psych of Indian establishment and people at large. We only believe in rhetoric and are unable to build a position of strength to deal with any issue. We will can only pay a lip service and utter Bollywood style dialogues like “Aar Par ki ladhai” on one hand or wield candles in “Aman Ki Asha” type tamasha.

To me more dismaying part is the passive role our defense establishment plays in these situations. I feel the subservient nature ingrained in our defense and civil services from the British raj days does not allow them to see beyond their noses and forces them to act only for self interest and self preservation. At the best they can act, only to protect their political masters. Other wise which country or it’s defense forces will tolerate repeated terror attacks on our people and inhuman acts like beheading of our Javans ?
