Silence of our friends
The idea of India is a beautiful one. Spiritual, secular, democratic and ensuring freedom to its citizens irrespective of faith, or gender. In spite of numerous setbacks and often poor leadership its society and economy are continuously prospering.
It is just a matter of time, Shedding a thousand years of misrule and exploitation India is all set to regain her rightful place as a leading economy and society.
As India blossoms once gain, it seeks to participate in and contribute to global affairs.
India's peaceful nuclear energy program is a a global role model for responsible use of nuclear technology. To contribute to a safer and better world it is beneficial for the world community that India be a member of the NSG (Nuclear Suppliers Group).
India does not necessarily need to be in the NSG from a practical standpoint but more so from a political need to play a more active role in global affairs.
It was but expected that the world's greatest nuclear proliferator China would veto India's membership of NSG. Surprisingly there were several nations with whom India has good relations but they have voted against India to please China or the terrorist state of Pakistan.
**Whenever we are driven by fear or greed, we usually fail to do the right thing. That is probably why sometimes our friends let us down.**
This reminds me of a statement made by a great and noble man, Martin Luther King Jr.
