India: A Relationship Based On Fairness

Supriyo Chaudhuri at Sunday posts has this to say to the winners of the Bangladesh election: “The Bangladeshi politicians must understand their responsibility and display their accountability to keep the mandate. India too, must abandon its big brother stance and make real concessions to build a relationship based on fairness, rather than expecting gifts of friendship and gratitude from the Bangladeshi government.”

    Indians, after almost 40 years since the 1971 war, do not wait for any recognition, or acknowledgement from Bangladeshis, of India’s contribution towards independence of Bangladesh from the plundering, raping and murdering Pakistani military.
    In the last four decades, Bangladesh found China and Pakistan to be more reliable, than India. This is not going to go away in months, or years.
    India and Bangladesh need to talk business, rather than concessions, gifts and friendship. Seikh Hasina Govt. is there today, may not be there tomorrow. But the two nations need to build their relation on the basis of mutual interest and benefits, that would survive the change of leadership in either country.
