So,Rajnath Singh had instructed his office to scale down India’s participation too by sending a junior delegation That was the status till about a week before the Saarc(South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation) meeting date Rajnath was of the view that the profile of the meeting did not befit the stature of India’s home minister In his mind the issue was over and done with But then two things happened that pricked the pride of the Thakur from Chandauli (near Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh) The first was the resolution by the Pakistan Parliament asking the United Nations to investigate the “human rights violations” in Kashmir The second was the open threat by the chief of Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD)Hafiz Saeed and Salahuddin that they would not let Rajnath Singh set foot on Pakistan soil It was their contrived bid to show solidarity with Kashmiri separatists and the extreme unrest that broke out in the valley in the wake of Hizbul terrorist Burhan Wani’s death Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh outside the Parliament on Friday PTI "Any Indian minister would have gone to Islamabad not for the love of Pakistan but for the love of Saarcbecause India is the driving force of the grouping So when two globally wanted Pakistan-harboured terrorists were openly threatening bodily harm to the Home Minister of India if he dared attend the Saarc meeting —with the benign indulgence of the Pakistan establishment —that was that At that instant Rajnath changed his mind" a close aide revealed to Firstpost Rajnath said the source was quite aware of the fact that Indian leaders are judged not by what they do in Bangladesh or Sri Lanka “The true measure of an Indian leader in the public eye is in how they behave in Pakistan The reference here is to the jinxed visits of BJP leaders to Pakistan The redoubtable LK Advani lost not just his party president-ship for saying on Pakistan soil that Mohammad Ali Jinnah was a secular leader but never regained his pre-eminence in the party Then his close friend and colleague Jaswant Singh undertook a tour to Pakistan and wrote a book eulogisingJinnah He was sacked at the BJP’s Shimla national executive "Rajnath instantly saw an opportunity in the open threat to his life and decided to take the challenge head on Much to the chagrin of India’s diplomatic circles he asked for arrangements to be made for his journey” said the source The ministry of external affairs dreading further deterioration in the already strained relationship with Pakistan wanted to scale down India’s representation Officials of the ministry got in touch with the home ministry to dissuade the home minister by impressing upon him the futility of attending a meeting of low-level functionaries of Saarcnations But Rajnath as is his wont put his foot down He was intent on going just to stare down the recalcitrant neighbour Left with no choice the foreign ministry diplomats gave a few do’s and don’ts and asked the home ministry officials to be mindful of who they met and what they said “We said that would not be necessary because the home minister had decided he would not meet any Pakistani officers or delegations He would restrict his visit strictly to matters Saarc” said the source And that is what he did from the word go When he landed at Islamabad airport a Pakistani official delegation received him He shook hands perfunctorily with a few of them and walked straight past the rest not even meeting their eyes A home ministry official who accompanied the minister to Pakistan pointed out that Rajnath remained deliberately aloof Though his meeting with Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif along with a Saarc delegation went off well he was cold to his counterpart Nisar Ali Khan His best act was yet to come Officials in the home ministry say that his speech accusing Pakistan (without naming it) of nurturing terrorists clearly got the goat of the Pakistan home minister He unambiguously arraigned Pakistan for nurturing encouraging and promoting terrorism The speech rattled the Pakistan establishment This led the Pakistani home minister to give the official lunch the miss “After Rajnath’s speech Nisar Ali walked straight past him and instead of walking towards the lunch venue headed for his car and left When Rajnath saw this he decided to go to his room and have his meal Some delegates of the other countries later met him and appreciated his decision and felt the host minister had insulted the Saarcguests by walking out of his do” the official said On his part Singh refused to have any one to one meeting with Pakistani officials and instructed the Indian high commission in Islamabad that he would singularly focus on Saarcmeeting The fact that some terrorist organisations were holding a demonstration a few miles away from the hotel where the Saarcconference was held exposed the hollowness of Pakistan’s commitment to combating terrorism Having made his point tellingly in his speech and cocking a snook at Pakistan-harboured terrorists on Pakistan’s soil Rajnath decided to waste no more time The special plane that carried him was called into service two hours before his scheduled departure and he returned satisfied that his 25-hour journey to Pakistan was well worth itDirector (Project and Planning).

There is no doubt that Kissinger is one of the geopolitical geniuses of our times In this one brief remarkhe captured a strategy that the West has used for the past two centuries to maintain its global domination: divide and ruleThe one region that should understand divide-and-rule better than any other is South Asia The British used this strategy brilliantly and succeeded One reason why I published my first bookCan Asians Think was to find an answer to an obvious question: how did my 300 million Indian ancestors allow themselves to be ruled so effortlessly by 100000 Englishmen The answer to this question is complex but one element is obvious: divide and ruleThe era of Western domination of global history is coming to an end rapidlybut great powers do not give up their power easily Anyone who thinks the UK and France will give up their permanent seats in the UN Security Council voluntarily must be smoking opium And in this urge to retain powerit would be very natural for the West to continue using a strategy that has worked well for centuries: divide and ruleThe main challenge to Western domination of world history is not coming from Africa or Latin America It is coming from Asia This is natural Up to 1820the two largest economies of the world were consistently China and India It was only in the last 200 years that Europe took offfollowed by North America But the last 200-year period of Western domination was a major historical aberration All historical aberrations come to a natural end Henceit is inevitable that by 2050 (and probably earlier) the two largest economies will once again be China and IndiaThe return of China and India can no longer be questioned The real big question is: will China and India grow together or grow apart The natural answer to this question should come from the historical pattern of the years 1 to 1820 Thenwhen China and India provided the worlds largest economiesthey never went to war with each other Henceif this pattern of two millennia returnslogically China and India should not go to warHoweverfrom 1 AD to 1820despite the glories of the Greeks and RomansChina and India never had to deal with a third rival civilisation In the 21st centuryeven though Western domination of world history will endthe West will not disappear Indeedit will remain the single strongest civilisation for another 100 years or more And it will have a great advantagewith the United States remaining the worlds greatest military power for a longer timeOne does not have to be a geopolitical genius to predict that the most important relationship will be the US-China-India geopolitical triangle And one also does not have to be a genius to know that the best position to occupy in this geopolitical triangle is to be in the middle position Hencefor exampleif Indias relations with both the US and China are better than the US-China bilateral relationshipthis will give India a significant geopolitical advantageSo farthe United States enjoys the position of being in the middle Despite the obvious geopolitical rivalries and tensionthe bilateral relationship between the US and China could not be stronger The total amount of US-China trade last year was $366 billion China enjoyed a massive trade surplus of $196 billion in the same year In returnthe US enjoys a massive amount of cheap loans from China in the form of over $1 trillion of US treasury bill purchasesEqually importantlythe common permanent membership of the UN Security Council means that on a daily basis the US and China make geopolitical deals I witnessed this at first hand when I served on the Council in 2001-02 And when a crisis breaks out in North Korea or Iranthe first impulse of WashingtonDC is to call Beijing Indias exclusion from such permanent membership gives it a geopolitical disadvantageTo secure the comfortable middle position in the US-China-India geopolitical triangleIndia will have to work hard to simultaneously strengthen its relations with both the US and China Its relations with the US are on a good wicket now The American courtship of India has become a major industry in WashingtonDC Some of it is due to ideological affinity as fellow democracies But as India learned in the Cold Wara democratic US can support a military-dominated Pakistan over democratic India Geopolitical interests always trump ideological affinities And since it serves American interests to occupy the middle position in the US-China-India geopolitical trianglethis may be an even more powerful reason for the US courtship of IndiaThe major questions for India therefore are obvious ones: will it be used as a convenient geopolitical card by the US to balance China Or will it emerge as an independent actor that can use both America and China to advance its own interests Will it allow emotions and ideology to influence its decisionsor will it use the wisdom of a Henry Kissinger to make cool and calculated long-term choices Will India use divide and ruleor will India be used again in divide and rule The writer is dean of the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at the National University of Singapore and the author of The New

back into a game (Source: Express Photo) Top News In February next year Australia are scheduled to travel to India for a four-Test series and former captain Adam Gilchrist said going by their recent outing the Aussies need to work hard on identifying big moments where they lack consistency The once formidable Australian team has recently lost fourth Test on the trot after being overwhelmed by South Africa at home And Gilchrist feels more often than not the Aussies are letting their opponents bounce back into a game “Australia shouldn’t be panicking They were very much in the dominant position in that Test match (at Perth against South Africa) Even in at least two of the Test matches in Sri Lanka they were really in dominant positions and then they let the opposition make a comeback So that’s their biggest concern and they need to work hard on this aspect” Gilchrist said “Australia need to identify moments in the game where they need to work hard and not let the opponent back in That’s what all the good teams do in any nation Australia can take confidence from the fact that they are good enough to compete with all their opponents and they are doing that but then they are losing the big moments “So I would expect them to make a comeback I think it’s going to be great rest of series against South Africa It will be a terrific series against Pakistan too” the legendary wicket-keeper batsman said Gilchrist who is here as the brand ambassador of University of Wollongong (UOW) on Thursday announced Vigneshwaran Subramani of Chennai as the recipient of the

failed Australia in the Test match against South Africa in Perth Gilchrist said: “Yes absolutely that was evident in Perth Neither of the two sides batted well in the first innings “Australia had a great opportunity to post a huge first innings total but they didn’t grab that opportunity South Africa made the correct adjustments in their second innings and made a huge total” said the 44-year-old left-handed batsman who has scored 5570 runs in 96 Tests Australia had recently lost the first of three Test rubber against South Africa in Perth by 177 runs The second Test of the series will be played at Hobart from November 12 and the third in Adelaide from November 24 Before the rubber against South Africa Australia were whitewash 0-3 by Sri Lanka in an away Test series in July-August earlier this year On the India-England series of which the first Test is underway in Rajkot Gilchrist said “Five Test matches it is a long Test series and hard to predict what is going to happen And that is great about Test cricket at the moment very unpredictable as to who is going to beat who “India play well in India so they probably will be feeling a little bit shocked (after the first day when England scored 311/4) It is a long series I would expect India to play well at stages throughout but England are off to a positive start and we have to wait and see” he added For all the latest
