    Nehru and Menon did create such anti Indian climate by just speaking when close mouth had been better. It was Nehru who for his own ego decided to go for Panchsheel and misread the world politics. When China attacked India no impotent member of such non aligned nation even uttered a word. It was that time Indis should have learnt but no . India has tried to be leader of poor and undeveloped nations though none of them have asked but feel that is her moral duty.
    India might have failed on certain demands of West but why should any nation give up her rights because few of them want.
    It is time that article of this nature showing complete lack of understanding and respect should stop publishing one sided views.
