America's South Asia Policy outsourced!

Carter is in Nepal and he may or may not consult Indian establishment while working on Nepalese conflict but present US governement consults Indian establishment on every matter regarding Nepal. It doesn't have any Nepal policy. In Nepal, it follows, 'India's Nepal policy'. In fact, it follows India everywhere in South Asia, in Sri Lanka, in Bhutan, in Maldives, in Bangladesh or even in Myanmar. May be nowadays US's Pakistan policy also depends on India's Pakistan policy.  After outsourcing computer softares, they may have started outsourcing foreign policy too! Does US have India policy? Or is it outsourced too, to , say China? :p


  1. Foreign policies outsourced... that's actually a quite funny concept!

    Can Carter's visit make a change?

    Today Maoist supremo Prachanda appeared in jolly mood in a KTV talkshow when he mentioned that what he talked about with Jimmy.

    Mission Million jee, Carter's visit can make change, in my opinion. His stature has increased international dimension of our peace process. Besides, as he told yesterday, carter center observers will be in almost all the polling stations in future election, we can have some degree of certainty in fairness of the election. And even if unfair, media will know and whole world will know through these observers. You know Nepali politics. A Nepali observer can be a easy target of political mobogans (mob+hooligan), but foreign observers are generally safe.

    On the other hand, the almost childish eagerness of Prachanda (and his hanumans) to visit Carter and his grinning face aftermath shows that Maoists really want to leave their old dogma and accept multiparty democracy. Prachanda's commitment has now become international and I think he is not foolish to embrace one party dictatorship ideology again.
    But most of his local cadres are still reciting Mao books. Seems he doesn't have much control over them, at least not as much as he boasts in front of us.

    Chamatkaribaba jee, thank you for adding me. I have added you too.
    My id at WNSO is 'basantakg'.

  5. Dude,

    Do you have rources to back these facts up? I would like to study this topic more, I am sure we can spread the word out and maybe make a difference.....


  6. anweshjee, thank you for your comment.
    Actually, this is a humorous take on American policy but it is true in essence.

    I am sorry right now I can't give you any links on related resources. The idea came to me after seeing Moriarty going to New Delhi before deciding about Nepal (our leaders go more often, I am aware of that. We will discuss about that later).

    Everybody knows America needs Indian market and so its relation with India has improved a lot compared to the last century, especially pre-1990 days when Soviet empire was still there. This may be the reason that it wants to dance in South Asia according to the Indian establishment tune. But does it fit for a superpower which thinks itself the greatest messiah of democrcy and human rights. We all know India is very much hegemonicstic against its smaller neighbors. And can America remain silent in every case?

    This is nowhere more visible than in the case of Bhutanese Nepalese refugees. Why can't US press India to resolve this issue? If India orders Bhutan to take back its citizens, Bhutan will readily do it as it is an 'willful' semi-colony of India.

    So I just tried to portray such situation little bit humourously.
    I think we need to discuss this more and thank you for inititating it.
