On the occasion of India's 67th Republic Day, here is a link to a short article in The NewYorker that neatly sums up the ups and downs in the peace process between India and its next door neighbor in the past decades.


"Since 9/11, according to congressional reports, U.S. taxpayers have given Pakistan at least eighteen billion dollars, much of it to the military. Last year alone, the U.S. gave Pakistan $1.5 billion dollars. Isn’t it about time we asked ourselves whether this is a good idea?" - From The Pakistani Dystopia in The New Yorker
