Beginning today Myanmar's military general is in India for a five day visit. We Indian take pride in the fact that we are the largest democracy in the world. And here instead of defending democracy we are doing business with murderer of democracy in Myanmar. I am very unhappy about it. Do you New Delhi should welcome such military general? FYI, in 2009 New Delhi gave Mahatma Gandhi Peace Award to Mrs. Suu Kyi. What a contradiction!

I agree! I agree! We are now educated, we can think, average person doesnt think, or cant be bothered! Then there are those who cant read or understand. :( I hate politicians.

If Amartya Sen happened to be India during these days, he'd give classes on political philosophy to those politicians. It's sad that our political leaders are compromising with our political morality to gain advantage over China's influence and Myanmar's gas.

Politicians know no morals, no love, no brains, no compassion. They only know how to pocket some monies, and compromise!

headhunter525, Let's not forget that the people in Myanmar and India still needs to bring home the bacon at the end of the day. So, we really need to exercise some diplomacy and set aside political differences for the sake of the people. "that government of the people, by the people, for the people...." Abraham Lincoln.

What do you mean by "bring home the bacon at the end of the day"? Do you mean to say that it's okay for New Delhi to do business with this military leader? Where then is our high sense of respect for democracy?

headhunter525, Well, the world is still revolving and other countries are conducting business with Myanmar. So, are you saying that these countries are in the wrong?

I won't like to speak for other countries. But for country I won't want that. The reason is that it's a military regime that undermines democracy. Any country that is ruled by military leader who undermines democracy should not be traded with specially arms. That's the way I want India to take stand.
