BRIEF SPEAKS...
Dear friends,

Born to conflict in 1947, India and Pakistan were separate by birth. Children of the same land, peoples and histories, it is, perhaps, the inherent rivalry of these South Asian nations that decidedly makes them estranged siblings.

From clashes and brawls to battles and wars, the two ‘brothers’ have regularly bayed for each other’s blood, much to the consternation of other South Asian family members. Yet, blood is thicker than water— and water disputes for that matter! Choosing to ignore the intermittent skirmishes at the Line of Control, India’s rightwing Hindu Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) has nudged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to improve relations with Pakistan. A meeting between the two prime ministers has been urged by Pakistan as well.

Hoping this growing maturity and respect for our brothers, will exemplify South Asia's 'family-like cultural relations', we bring to you the next edition of'South Asia Watch', featuring the insights of Tridivesh Singh Maini,Senior Research Associate with The Jindal School of International Affairs, on the growing role of states in India's foreign policy.
