More of the usual stuff from S.V.

Siddharth Varadarajan comes back with more of the usual stuff. Talk to Pakistan even if they wont dismantle their terror network. Talk to them even if they Pakistan wont stop killing Indians through terrorist attacks. Keep talking even if it hurts.

If it is in Pakistan's DNA, can anything change it? But Siddharth Varadarajan is talking like a paid mercenary of Pakistani establishment. And N.Ram is publishing this stuff in his paper, keeping in line with the promise he made to Pakistan to take care of its interests in India. This is the reason why you dont see chindu even obliquely mentioning that Pakistan should dismantle its terror network.
The Hindu : Opinion / Leader Page Articles : Time to end the impasse with Pakistan
Of course, the dialogue did not end cross-border terrorism or extinguish the links between the Pakistani security agencies and violent extremism as some on the Indian side might have hoped. But that was always an improbable shot given the DNA of the Pakistani establishment.

What a farce this man is. I asked him just what is it that he thinks we should talk about - no answer!

Mr. Varadarajan somewhat pompously declares: "Finally a strict moratorium on grandstanding and posturing, finger-pointing and name-calling is necessary."

To this we can also add a moratorium on pseudo-peace measures like Wagah border candle light burning, bollywood bonhomie (and similar tract-2, tract-3 imbecilites etc.), Lahori nostalgia, journalistic utopian cravings and finally, unsolicited expert advice a la SV.
