The importance of a thorough analysis of the current state of India-Bangladesh relations can hardly be exaggerated. Sceptics may observe that India can afford to remain indifferent to relationships with Bangladesh, whereas Bangladesh cannot do so vis-à-vis India. But realities do not admit of such skeptic oversimplification. With India’s northeast region remaining chronically unstable, and with count ries across this region, e.g. China and Myanmar, trying to improve their relations with Bangladesh (which itself provides a commercial gateway to India’s northeast region), India has to upgrade substantially its relations with Bangladesh in order to safeguard some of its vital interests. The necessity to strengthen the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) provides an additional impetus to the urgency of such upgradation. The disparity in the size and resources of India and Bangladesh are but a misleading indicator of the present importance of India-Bangladesh relations.Printed Pages: 104.
