These smiles do not produce satisfaction, but rather fear or suspicion. But a genuine smile gives us hope, freshness. If we want a genuine smile, then first we must produce the basis for a smile to come.
Delhi is a very maligned city, and deservedly so. Yet there’s something about it. It’s a secret city, it doesn’t hang out its wares. It’s like a very deep river. Floating right up on top are the institutions of contemporary power: government, politics, media, and then there’s the bureaucracy, the diplomatic missions. But it’s also the city of intellectual debate, of protest, it’s the city where people from all over the country converge to express their anger. And then, underneath all that, there’s this crumbling, ancient city, a confluence of so much history.
Burma is located between China, India, and South East Asia. So it is quite natural that a country wanting diplomatic relations with our country would pay attention to who our regional neighbors are. It is not at all fair to ask a country to build relations with Burma but not take into account the situation in China. There is no way to think that taking the Chinese situation into consideration shows a disregard for Burma.
