Parliament Proceedings- the need for restraint:

The behavioural conflict between the ideologically polarised forces in India might be a law of nature, but if it turns into a political confrontation affecting the democratically      established system then it is the society that gets affected. The happenings during the current Budget session of Parliament need introspection by the elected representatives of the country and their fellow travellers in the media.


    Note no. 86  

Decision-making in foreign policy involves the analysis and assessment of past and current data, in the light of our past experience and that of others, who had dealt with similar situations, in order to identify the need and available options for action in the future and the likely implications of each of those options for the protection and promotion of our national interests.


Indian security agencies have in the past handled successfully many hijackings by Sikh terrorist elements, the Jammu & Kashmir Liberation Front, Myanmarese and Nepali political dissidents, the Japanese Red Army faction and individual eccentrics, but this is the first time they have had to deal with one by an Islamic terrorist group, of apparently Wahabi orientation.
