WHY INDIA IS AFRAID OF PAKISTAN?
I was 16–17 years old, my father was contesting an election for village headman.
[If you were sleeping in your Social Science classes, then let me remind you a concept of Civics, suppose Village is your Classroom and Village-Headman is a post, similar to Class-Monitor, where every student has the right to get elected.]
One day, I was with my father and an uncle from opponent group abused my father for some random thing. My father didn’t react but that Abusive-Uncle tried his best to offend my father.
Someone was abusing my father, that is not acceptable for any son in this world. I grabbed a stone which was lying on the road and you can speculate what I did with that stone. He was bleeding, I had an evil smile on my face.
That evil smile vanished within 5–10 seconds because my father rewarded me with 2–3 slaps for that awesome stunt.
The same night a meaningful conversation happened with my father,
Me: Why you slapped me, Papa, you know what I did was commendable. He was abusing you.
Papa: Commendable? Seriously? That was sheer stupidity. Thank God! I was there, otherwise, they would have beaten you black and blue.
Me: I think you are afraid of him. That’s why you were silent.
Papa: Subhash, I have you and your sisters to raise. Suppose I got indulged in that fight. What If that fight turned into a major fight.
Do you know what would happen after that?
A police case or something even worse.
Imagine your life without your father.
I have everything at stake. My business, prestige, family etc. But that guy has nothing to lose.
So, I was everything but not afraid.
Why is India afraid of Pakistan?
India has [29 States + 7 Union Territories] kids to raise, dreams to achieve, a solid reputation to maintain etc. That’s why India ignores some random abuses from that abusive guy who has literally nothing to lose.
Is India afraid? Hell No.
