Obama and Hasina's Victory

I was out on official work last month, so i couldn't put forth my views. Nevertheless, I do remember all the important developments that took place during the time.

As i had predicted, Sheikh Hasina, scripted a great victory at the hustings. Bangaldesh was plunged into unprecedented turmoil by Khaleda Zia. It was just a matter of time before her policies were to be rejected by the people. It came a bit late because the country went to elections late. After Khaleda's exit, Sheikh Hasina's victory was a foregone conclusion. For India it bodes good, because she believes in fair play and has inordinate abhorance for the fundamentalists.

Barrack Obama's climb to the top post is of no use to India. Like a true American, he is expected to turn a blind eye to the sufferings of India at the hands of Pakistan backed militants. He is more interested in finding a safe passage for American soldiers, stuck in Afghanistan, than in uprooting terrorism from the region. All his moves, as of now, promise nothing.
