I do understand that many readers may complain again about the length of this diary.. But I’d ask you to consider what Modi’s victory means not only geopolitically in his search to become a Major Nuclear Power World Leader via Nationalism and militarism, as the West cheers him on. Further consider India having the second highest population on the planet, but ruled by a handful of Modi’s cronies who desire nothing less than ruling Southeast Asia while tied to the US. You might consider as well what it means for the majority Muslim people of Kashmir, caught between Pakistan and India two nations, while Modi intends to use nuclear Pakistan for his own ends.
