The signs of a pucca feminist, are seen in Suu Kyis praise for Kamala, rather than her husband, Nehru who was fighting for not only his own, but his countrys freedom.

The world is becoming more partial to the feelings of woman to the exclusion of males. This trend is evil.

A well thought out and honourable speech, which shows the respect that Gandhi ( the real one ) and Nehru command in the international arena.

Another respectable woman made use off, by loot raj leaders, to further their own credibility, to use the shine, and use to make EVEN MORE and MORE MONEY.

Eloquent, thoughtful, deep. Does anyone doubt that India is unique in Asia in hosting such an individual, and providing her the opportunity to speak like this?  Could she say something even remotely as thoughtful or incisive in China, North Korea, Saudi Arabia or Iran?  In China, for instance, she would have to lay stress on the might and strength of China, and China's great rise as power. In India, she will emphasise the human ans philosophical dimension. Yes, India is different, if not unique.

The speech is all fine and dandy. How did Nehru deal with the Burmese after the Commies came to power in China? His correspondence with the Burmese leader are there in Selected Works. The shorter version is-Nehru ditched Burma to curry flavor with Mao.

Suu Kyi either is ignorant or chose to ignore this episode.
