Babur would be rolling in his grave to see his beloved city, Kabul, city of a large varieties of tulips and different wines, resembling Stalingrad during the Second World War.

Indo-Afghan relations are among the few bilateral ties that include elements of civilisational, emotional and strategic imperatives and bonds.Kabul was once a Hindu and a Buddhist city; while Delhi was a leading centre of Persian literature and language, as well as the home of a Pathan political dynasty and Sufi Islam.For many Afghans, India is among the few places that accords them respect and dignity, unlike many others which treat them as unwanted, backward, terrorists or drug-dealers.Kabul and Delhi are also the main victims of Rawalpindi’s use of terrorism to pursue its regional ambition and inherent insecurity.India’s need to access Afghanistan and Central Asia’s natural resources and markets complements it’s vast market for Afghanistan’s growing economy.For Afghanistan’s nascent democracy, development and its state-building process, India is an inspiration and a model. ...
