Continued...Having seen several army dictatorships, unlike India, Pakistan not only has more than one power centre, it has an intense power struggle between them. However, almost as a paradox, hostility towards India that unites the country as a bare necessity, also unites those centres to form an elite bunch. While politicians gain votes out of the external enemy India, its army gathers the lion's share of the budget claiming a defensive necessity - so long as the hostility is kept alive. In fact, while the Daughter of the East, Benazir Bhutto, supported the Kashmiri Jihadist, outsmarting the army politicians have also incited war against India.Though, Sharif's role in the tragic Kargil war following Bajpai's joyous visit is an enigma; even if he had a role, 'a changed man' - normally reserved for Modi - validates Modi's 'You are a man of peace'. This is because, Sheriff has asserted the futility of the f16s and emphasised the need to enhance the livelihood of his countrymen. He also has survived a death penalty brought in by the army. Unlike the historic tug of war with the army, this tug is on the hostility towards India itself. Though good for the Pakistani elite, with it restricting the cherished common sub-continental market, and with reasons, making army take lion's share of the state budgets that could otherwise have been used for all, hostility isn't good for the ordinary. With army being the only respected institution, this fight between the democrats and the army makes Sharif feel helpless. Seeking help, thus, becomes natural.A New AllianceThus, following an initial hesitation, when he suddenly met another democrat - a strong leader who had won a landslide victory and had progressive plans for the subcontinent - almost reminding 'workers of the world unite' he grabbed the 'democrats of the world unite'. Having a slanted eye on his army and lending a voice to the later he said, 'I also won a majority'.In addition, however, when the two mummy's boys came together under the spell of maternal instinct and tradition, almost an Indian style arranged marriage made in haven seems to have taken place. And if history were to be brought in for reminiscence, it would almost seem to show the coming together of long lost culture sharing friends, who would question 'Why on earth did we separate?'As if influenced by globalisation, developmental plans that transcended cast creed and ethnicity in the election 2014 would now trace the misadventure of its Pak banned Bollywood. To be precise, it would now transcend the Indo-Pak national border.As if to match the Taliban's gloom with the earlier misadventure, this ganging up of democrats hasn't made the Pak army happy. The delayed 'Sharif wasn't happy' alluded to that fact. Though, numerically it is still two, the Indo Pak hostility that saw cross border terrorism, as a changed power dynamics in South Asia, now seems to show a clash between a united group of cross boarder democrats and the lone Pak army.Modi: From Derision to PraiseAnd when all things were said and done and apprehension and blame gave way to praise Modi's grin showed all 32. His tailor alone, however, would be privy to the rise of his chest size above 56. And when the imported sari arrived from the West, even his mum could not stop a smile. Almost like infection, the smile spread everywhere. While praising itself for playing good opposition in the saga PPP got praise, praising Modi for the episode Congress stalwart Shashi Tharoor even got a beating from the recalcitrant Aiyar.Either way, the sub-continent is not going to be the same.------------------------------------------------Thanks for reading the article.
