Closure in Dhaka

Closure in Dhaka

40 years after East Bengal overthrew the yoke of Pakistani rule, Bangladesh has honoured the late Indira Gandhi, the guiding spirit of that event in history. In a sense, it marks a closure for India—often a villain in many a Bangladeshi narrative. This theme is a product of its unrealistic expectations, unrealized dreams and domestic politics. It’s too much to hope that one big award can change that. Bangladesh needs help and assurances that India is a friend. These should be provided quickly and in ample measure.
