Sir, — The BJP leaders want to start and win a war against Pakistan before the coming elections. The whole world cannot be wrong. There must be something wrong with us _ our Kashmir policy and the growing friendship with Israel, to name a few.

India's political leadership appears to be virtually unanimous on a policy of confrontation with Pakistan. International opinion appears to be equally unanimous that we compromise with Pakistan. Politics being the art of the possible, our Government should consider carefully whether it is feasible to reject world opinion and take on Pakistan, which also has nuclear capabilities.

We should not be like Abhimanyu who knew how to get into battle but not how to get out of it.
