Latest media reports on India’ bilateral relations with Iran are disturbing.Indian shias are not happy at these unsavoury developments.Reasons are not far to seek.Deals on development of Chabahar port and construction of Rail project signed in 2016, stand cancelled by Iran citing stoppage of fund flow to Iran by India,obviously under US pressure.

The serious setback has caused massive diplomatic embarassment & geo-political loss to India.

China, as always, was One-UP India . Taking advantage of growing mistrust between India and Iran , China was quick to play the Master stroke by promising huge investment in Iran for 25 years,promising  billions of US dollars to Iran.

Pathetic for MEA and PMO. India's  partial investment in Chabahar has gone waste. Now ,we have to search for new routes to Europe, Afghanistan and central Asia, Russia etc.

Could this not be attributed to failure of India''s foreign policy ? Lack of foresightedness on part of our laid-back mandarins in MEA , over-confident Foreign Minister, the NSA and ill-advised PM? Who monitored the Chabahar deals executed with Iran in 2016 in MEA and PMO. PM Modi would have much to explain to the Parliament.

Was this due to secret pressure from the US as widely reported in the Media?If,so, why was pressure not resisted to protect India's sovereignty?

The world is slowly but surely edging forward towards World War -3. Procrastination by having frequent dialogues with China is enabling China-Pakistan to mobilise their resources.

Frequency of terror attacks by Pak is increasing by the hour. Arrest of Chinese spies in Arunachal Pradesh and Sikkim for creating mayham,is disturbing.

Their intrusion through Nepal is the wake-up call. India must strengthen its guard at the " chicken neck ", which China is aiming to take over.

This could cut off the entire North-India from the hinterland. If, necessary, a small surgical strike at Nepal would be necessary to seize a part of Nepal to obfuscate China from further misadventure.

No candyfloss approach for Nepal under its present Oli dispensation. Time is of the essence. Are we awaiting arrival of S-400 air shield from Russia, Rafael fighter jets from France, Spice jets from Israel and F-22 & F-35 fighter jets from the US?

These would be useful in the long term perspective. Though India can take on China and Pakistan together, but the NATO forces led by the US will have to concurrently engage with China and north Korea.

This will force China to fight the war at multiple fronts. India will have the opportunity to take back POK, Gilgit -Baltistan and Aksai chin. India must also assist in the liberation // separatist’ movements in Baluchistan , Sindhu Desh and Pakhtoonistan.

Afghanistan must grab the opportunity of taking over Pakhtoonistan.
