India should proactively explore all areas of cooperation with Myanmar
India will be talking elections this Sunday. The one in Bihar is bound to drown out the other one in Myanmar. That does not in any way take away from the significance of elections in Myanmar. The coming elections might pave the way for a genuine democracy in the land of Aung San Suu Kyi, a Nobel laureate globally acclaimed as a “democracy icon". As India has learnt from China, albeit after a protracted dilemma, it should continue to engage with the government in Myanmar without burdening itself with the responsibility of promoting democracy in the region.
