The Camouflaged Indian Agenda

By Maila Baje — The fate of the new beginning independent India sought with the democratic government of 1951, the elected government of B.P. Koirala in 1959 and the interim governments of 1990 and 2006 need not be rehashed here. The Indians need to get over the fact that Kathmandu managed to remain outside the Indian Union in 1947 when Kerala was in.

Xi-Modi Summit : Up Next is Nepal!

By Maila Baje — Xi: It’s more than ‘here and there’, from what I hear. Across the board, they feel India can’t stand the fact that they are independent. The king, political parties, even the communists, come running to us whenever they’re in trouble. We mediate, they get their throne/chairs back and what’s the next thing everyone does? Indians this, Indians that. We aren’t fools. We recognized that China had arrived in South Asia long before 2005. But look here, after the fall of the monarchy, we didn’t have a reliable partner. Everyone was either educated or exiled – often both – in India.

KP Oli and His Geostrategy

By Maila Baje ¬_ To cut a long story short, where’s the evidence that Oli won’t be a changed man this time around as far as his geostrategic orientation goes? Dahal’s 180-degree flip was softened to an extent by the distance between his two premierships. The relative closeness of Oli’s tenures will perhaps make any such somersault more extraordinary, but it will certainly be no less explicable.

Politics of Pre-emption?

By Maila Baje - Khadka is the last surviving leader who stepped out of that aircraft on that cold December day with B.P. Koirala seeking national reconciliation in 1976. To many ears, B.P. and Hindu statehood probably don’t seem to go together well. Yet could they be a winning combination for Khadka – and one that his rivals desperately want to pre-empt?

China and India in Doklam: This can have catastrophic consequences for India

By Prakash Katoch _ Merely making brave statements that we have good relations with China and resolution is possible through talks can have catastrophic consequences for India. China is likely to embarrass India while its attention is focused on the general elections in May next year. This could also be used to undermine the growing India-US partnership.
