Is India being God Father of South Asia?

South Asia is the key playing region in coming time in the field of Economy. From South Asia to West can be gotten command on economy and resources of regions, too. World is going to be hub of Economic–Village, it needs to seek mild climate to run its business. Nature of capitalist turns eyes on agriculture, energy resources and consumption points, these three things exist the outsized form in South Asia.
We have seen that each era has own mode of production and exchange, hence those reflected in the respective conditions.

In past time, world had romance of Politics and Public, too where we saw healthy production of thoughts and dew of wisdom.
Repeatedly, World Power Makers have also romance with Economy (Capitalism).  They think, by getting power on Economy can be ruled easily to prolong its hegemony. No doubt, South Asia will play significant role as Economy-Hub.
Who will ride on Horse of South Asian Economy?  In South Asia, Afghanistan is lucrative ground and has spectrum of routs, one is connected Central Asia, then can be with South Asia, too. It leads to get throne of Economy Market.

During British Empire in sub-continent Afghanistan remained as Goat between British and Russia (USRR), everyone wanted to get strong influence in Afghanistan, none had won for gripping command, including yesterday’s Mujahideen and today’s Taliban has found out to fail keeping their hold for ruling in the name of Islam.
Afghanistan has been in the series of war for decades, now they have learnt and want to see bright future of Afghanistan. Afghanistan is on changing phase and clean-up its war of fog because Afghans are keen to see future citizens without wars and guns. They know well that friendship with neighbors must be established and formed, except this no state can move onward.
Who will drive car on shining roads of Afghanistan and will be able to reach the Central Asia, and then South Asian Market. Afghanistan is hardly willing give the pass to Pakistan because establishment of this state still has Mujahideen Policy and thinking of conquer other part of region in the name of religion and besides it, both neighboring states Afghanistan and Pakistan have dispute on Durind Line, too. On other hand, some tribes of Afghanistan don’t have feasible relation with Iran and conflict is still on the base of Sunni and Shia, too.

Afghanistan knows that China enjoys relationship with Pakistan, and China has engaged in various projects operating in Pakistan, therefore it doesn’t seem for China to get free hand entry into Afghanistan. If Global Economic Power turns to America and Russia, Afghanistan would prefer to America instead of Russia.
Afghanistan is feeling like that she is walking along with India. The reason is, “India never recognized the Taliban’s assumption of Power in 1996, (Only Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and the United Arab Emirates recognized the Taliban regime)” reported. Aftermath 9/11 USA and Indian ties got the strongest and India has rebuilt full diplomatic relations with Afghanistan and has provided hundreds of million of dollars aid to Afghanistan for reconstruction and development.
A Research report tells, since 2001, India has offered $1.2 billion for Afghanistan’s reconstruction, hence this state has overt as the largest donor to Afghanistan.
India is playing very significant role in the Shanghai Cooperation organization, which has been pursuing better relations with Central Asia states in energy sector, and it granted $17 million for innovation of a hydropower plant in Tajikistan, and a memorandum of understanding signed with Turkmenistan for a natural gas pipe line.
India knows Art of sustaining power, from Soft Power to Hard Power. By using Soft Power India has won heart of people in South Asia.
Afghanistan likes secular approach of India, and major tribes have enjoyed good relations with this state. Even, Afghanistan and India both have reservation for extremists bolstering point with Pakistan.
Afghan government does not have any concern from India regarding extremist groups. Though, Afghanistan wanted to build better relation with Pakistan and this neighboring state also seeks same. After attacks in Kabul and Haqqani Net Work’s involvement nag had created impediments, consequently both states distances got widened. It is not new thing, however since Dictator Musharraf’s Era; both countries did not have smooth relations.

Therefore, Afghanistan will not be allowed to anyone that can be caused of problem.
India is soft choice for Afghanistan, because Afghan government can export its goods to Indian Market and India has the largest population, this side helps out Afghan government to boost up its market in this region.
India is looking for good relations with neighboring entities in South Asia, and recently has tried smooth relation with Pakistan, it knows that trade with Afghanistan must be maintained normal relation with Pakistan, no one can grantee that how long will normal relations run between India and Pakistan? India understands about it that is why India is about to build a port in “Chabahar in Iran, which among other things could connect to the Iranian hinterland goods to Afghanistan, bypassing Pakistan completely,” reported.

USA will also make strong ties with India in this region, because USA finds comfortable room with India than China, and India has had also hard position of relations with China. For America, it is not easy to get command in South Asia completely. God Father of World (America) needs another God Father of South Asia, so far India is lucky coin for USA that USA’s market will reach largest consumer in India and making best friend in South Asia, to protect its interests and would render tough position to China and Russia, too.
India has interlude time of enjoying and earning confidence of American and Afghan governments.
Afghanistan is golden route to lead from Central Asia Countries to South Asia.
In contemporary world scenario, United States and India’s friendship will make new path in South Asia, and world may see best relation between God father of world (America) and God father of South Asia, which can introduce soft borders of South Asia to world premises.

In Pakistan, Martyred Benazir Bhutto had dream of soft borders among South Asian entities and she wanted to build the power of economy, but now situations tilt in Indian favor. India has won hearts of people while using Art of Secularism in the paradigm of Soft Power.
