India and USA

India has been betrayed by all nations except Russia in its crucial conditions. Its high time we realize who is our true friend and true enemy. Though USA President Obama has promised several investments, we cannot sit blindly that they will complete it. Everyone knows what kind of statement did President Obama make before leaving to his abode.

We should not forget that USA is the one who is supplying weapons frequently to Pakistan despite knowing that latter is using those for destruction purpose on India.

We must even not forget George Bush’s last speech while leaving Presidential Post that 2nd enemy of USA is India.

Pakistan don’t have any profit by conquering Kashmir. If Kashmir is given to Pak then the latter will just make it a hell to live and spread their religion throughout the place. The one who actually benefits from this is USA as Kashmir is an easy route to attack China as it is the biggest enemy and obstacle in USA’s path of retaining World’s Biggest Economy Status.

One more thing, USA is a kind of nation who doesn’t help other nations without having their own personal interest. That too for a developing country which has potential to grow is just impossible.

RUSSIA, A friend in need is a friend in deed

India-Soviet Union relations is symbol of true friendship. Russia has proved this saying many times … “A Friend in Need is a Friend in Deed”
1) During the Indo-Pak war of 1965, Pakistan reportedly got arms from United States and Britain. Even after India’s repetitive pleads the West did not sell arms to India. India, initially a Non-aligned country then decided to build closer relations with the Soviet Union. Soviet Union became India’s largest defence partner and supplied 80% of India’s arms need. The war ended abruptly though India had higher gains followed by our Late PM Lal Bahadur Shastri’s mysterious death.

2) During the Indo-Pak war in 1971, America and Britain threatened to intervene against India and India saw that as an obstacle to claim complete victory over Pakistan. The United States and Britain sent warships in the Indian Ocean and seeing this India called the Soviet Union for help. The Soviet Union also sent some its best warships. Eventually, Britain and United States retreated seeing Soviet Union intervening and India successfully defeated Pakistan.

3) Indians have always been taught to believe from the very childhood that “Russia is our best friend. It has always come to our help during ominous times.” Even recently Modi said to Putin “If you ask a kid in India about who’s our best friend the answer will certainly be Russia!” Indians trust Russia as a strategic ally because this relationship has been time-tested.
4) When India tested nuclear bomb for the first time the West imposed sanctions on India and stopped the supply uranium. In that difficult times Russia stood beside India and assisted India in nuclear energy and kept supplying uranium.
Russia has also agreed recently to assist Indian companies to manufacture weapons in India under “Make in India.” Russia
also only sells its strategic weapons to India.

5) During the Goa liberation war against the Portuguese all the Western countries stood against their support for colonial rule in Goa. Portugal was also NATO member. The Soviet Union supported India and helped us to recognize Goa as part of Union of India when the Portuguese surrendered at the hand of Indian Armed Forces.

Russia has a unique place in the minds of most Indians. Our elders are more in their support for Russia and still don’t trust the United States and any of the Western countries.
