Perhaps the single biggest takeaway from Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s UN speech is that he has brought the hands of the clock to the same point again. In Hindi it could read: ghari ki sui usi jagah wapas aa gayi hae…
The Prima Minister Modi made his pro-talks (with Nawaz Sharif) clear in unambiguous words: “I am prepared to engage in a serious bilateral dialogue with
peaceful atmosphere, without the shadow of terrorism”. A simple sentence with
intensely powerful meaning. In a way, he snubs his Pakistani counterpart for
dragging a third party and in other words has set the ball rolling for talks. Pakistan
