You're right. There is a fundamental malaise that has set in thanks to the modern T20 mindset. We need to be prepared for the long drawn out game of attrition. What we put into motion today won't yield results for 10/20 years - but we must be willing to do it nevertheless.Always a pleasure reading your posts.
In short you capture the gist of one of the aspects of Chanakya's arthashastra. It is vital that Pakistan understands the mentality to formulate a counter strategy. From astrologers to actors from ascetics to sanitation workers, everyone can be an asset. India showed this in 71.
Sadly, there is too much of an ego issue here. I remember mentioning how important it is to understand and read Chanakya's principles. Quite a few members ridiculed the suggestion.
There is a reason that a great muslim personality told us that " Ilm momin ki gumshuda miras hai, jahan se miley lay lo".
Half of our country was taken away from us, Siachen was taken, immense damage has been done to us in this war on terror. Hindu occupied kashmir has been demographically changed in front of us, but we are content with liberating Afghanistan in the 1980s with the entire western world on our side.
Anyways, point is hindutvadis are immensely strategic and their innate hatred for muslims and Pakistan compels them to pin prick Pakistan and in the process they do make mistakes. It is Pakistan's foremost duty to oblige.
India today offers a great opportunity to exploit it with China on their backs, but sadly, I dont see Pakistani leaders capable enough to galvanize state institutions to take advantage of it. The idea seems to be to just follow China and we shall prevail. Hope China leaves india a million times more mutilated than Taimur left delhi.
