With nuke deal, world makes space for India-India-The Times of India


The most extraordinary part about the US Congress vote on the India nuclear agreement was not that it cleared the Senate with a higher majority than the Hyde Act but that it took three hours of debate and a vote at a time when the Congress, indeed all of US, is focussed on one thing — the financial crisis and the bailout package. It’s this that made the vote more striking.(via With nuke deal, world makes space for India-India-The Times of India).

India Still Doesn’t Get It

Indrani Bagchi, an old hand, credits this deal is due to “the world is making space for India.”

It should have raised many ‘Indian’ eyebrows, when the US Congress, impeded the US-dollar bailout, but pushed through a nuclear deal so quickly. But, it seems that Indians believe that ‘never look at a gift horse, in the mouth.”
Dear Indrani, it is no “acknowledgment that the world is making space for India.” It is sheer self interest from the US. And of course, Indian self interest too.
