James Bond


I found Ganesh Raj Sharma's opinion "The reasons behind." (#40) to be adventurous. Although he uses the Cold War analogy, Mr Sharma seems to almost create an excuse for the so-called "internal problems" like political instability, security, poverty and decentralisation. Blaming external forces rather than ourselves is a dangerous game that can give politicians, leaders and intellectuals excuses for their own shortcomings by inciting nationalistic/ communual fervour. It leaves no room for individual self-responsibility. Mr Sharma's flair for Cold War theatrics is evident in his conspiracy theories, espionage and political manoeuvrings that he lists in his James Bondesque piece. Although interesting, the article was not enlightening.
