Like Yasser Arafat,Peres and Rabin getting Nobel peace prize,Manmohan and Zardari can jointly get the prize.But,both Palestine and Kashmir problems will continue till eternity.

Rights of minorities (Hindus, Sikhs) in Pak should be high on agenda.

State-sponsored terrorism is a must- whatever Pakis might think

Fishermen;s harrasement by Pak is also an important issue

Now pakistanis have almost lost hope of dislodging Indian troops from siachen, therefore this talk of peace , "not a blade of grass grows etc.."  It is also surprising that almost all Pakistanis irrespective of color of their ideology(?) harp on easy Visa regime. Why they want Indian Visa ?  To carryout recci ? Indians have suffered  and struggled for last 65 years and have come this stage. When the fruits are about to reach Poor Indians, many  Pakistanis want to subotage it by building 'Diffa - e- pakistan'.  Only a incurable naive will allow easy visa regime. ( Unfortunately there are many naive in India who are pressing for easy visa regime. )

Perhaps now there is some realization on the part of Pakistani rulers that neither India nor Pakistan can live peacefully if trouble spots like Siachen are given fresh lease of life. Let us accept that both India and Pakistan consider it right to have its presence in the Siachen valley though it is also accepted that both countries are paying heavily for protecting their strategic interests in the region. If Chief of Army Staff of Pakistan is sincere, he should accept that Pakistan has to make a beginning to reduce tensions between two countries. It was Pakistan which forced wars on us. Pakistan’s relationship with India has become strained on account of Pakistan’s unwise involvement in the Kashmir issue.

 "here are no minerals in Siachen; not even a blade of grass can grow there. "

The exact line Nehru used when asked why we are not doing anything when China occupied certain territory. One MP, who was totally bald, pointed his head and said "not a blade grows here also. To whom is Nehru going to gift my head"?

How many areas are there in Pak where not a blade of grass grows? Can we take that? 

I assume not a blade of grass grows in vast areas of Thar desert. Can we gift those to Pak?

One of the most naive articles I have seen from Prof. Parvez Hoodbhoy. Pakistan as a country can't be trusted at all. For Pakistan to be trustful, Pakisstan has to be honest to itself, accept its South-Indian roots, the Indic past, be proud of its Islamic heritage, accept the basic fact that religion can't be a basis for a successful nation and then move on in the real world, control its military, let democracy succeed with participation of common people, the the masses be part of the national process (not just the bloody elites) and then it can emerge as a reasonable country. The more Pakistan hates India, believes that Islam and more fundamentalist Islam is the solution (to which Bhutto, Zia, nawaz Sharif all contributed) there is no hope in the hell for that country.

The five points are sensible and doable. Leave the knotty ones on the back burner.

 Good points.  If they act like a normal neighbors, Kashmir problem might even go away by itself.  Kashmir problem is mostly in the mind.  If the two countries don't view each other as a threat, Kashmir will be half solved already.

Bajpai went to Lahore with his new Bus and journey ended in Kargil heights .

The we talked to Prevez in Agra and our Parliament was attacked with sole aim to destroy the Indian Political Leadership .

Then we talked and talked we were blessed with 26/11 to destroy the economy of the Country -hurt it did our economy very badly .

Now Manmohan has got the itch to talk again .
Khuda janey Anzam kya hoga !
But jo bhi hoga accha nahin hoga !

 USA learnt the lesson when Osama was found in the lap of ISI and PAK Army .

The World can't trust the Pakis .

 Suggestions are not practical. It should be live and let live and then we move from there.
