The usual story of the forestIn the forest, there are carnivorous animals who live by eating other animals. They attack other animals and kill them. The herbivorous animals generally flee when attacked by carnivores. Those who don't succeed to flee, are killed and devoured by the attacking carnivores. The smaller herbivores spend their life in fleeing and in getting killed.
However, there are some herbivores who are very strong and powerful. Elephant, bison and wild boar come in this category. When they are attacked by the carnivores, they get united and repulse such attack with ferocity. Sometime they become so ferocious, they kill the attacking carnivores.
In human society also, some countries behave like wild carnivores. They try to devour other nation-states. These nation-states are like herbivores. Some are devoured by those carnivores. Some repulse their attack with ferocity, and in the process, destroy the carnivorous nation-states.
Now we have to decide. Should India behave like smaller nation-states and continuously avoid conflict with carnivorous nation-states by bowing its head, tolerating insults and chanting peace? Or should India behave like larger harbivores and repulse the attack of the greedy nation-states with ferocity?
The choice is ours only.
