    just think how it will be(optimistic view )
    Pakistan has been hit by floods of unimaginable magnitude – with over 13.8 million affected – which the UN has categorised as bigger human catastrophe than the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, the 2005 Kashmir earthquake and the 2010 Haiti earthquake combined!

    If india offers certian amount of help in paksitans flood effected area ..how it will be??

    India is offering help but the main things right now are Food,Medicine,blankets,tents etc...India has probably went thru this every year with Bangladesh flooding.

    i hope we do give them aid in what ever little way we can right from medicines to tent houses to blankets to drinking water to what ever may constitute a part of it. its a humanitarian crisis and we need to have a humane point of view.

    Why India? Pak must use the US aid instead. Aren't we having enough problems at home itself? Leh needs money. Kokan flooded area needs money. We are not surplus country yet. Nothing discriminating about Pak but PAK GOV should take care of it themselves...

    It has not been officially thru the Indian Govt but Indian agencies and volunteers are helping. A lot more would have been done if relations were better.

    I'm totally against giving cash as it can be used against us in one or the other form. Yes, we can send them food, tents, medicine, clothes, blankets etc that are of immediate requirement.

    I dont see any merit helping them. Whatever we send them made in India label will be removed from them. We will still be villians for Pakistani people so why to waste our money.We have lots of people in need of help in our own country we should concentrate on helping them instead. We are already a Villian for them so we shouldn't try to act like a hero .

    Why food from GOI stock? Our tons of food is spoiled due to NO MANAGEMENT. We should first create efficient food distribution chain to help the Indians sleeping hungry. If some Indian Humanitarian society with global operations & funding from fatties (who wants to hide their black asset) go & help Pak flood hit area themselves, then its somewhat acceptable. But no official help from GOI in any form is expected or required.

    I agree Ritesh, sending medicine is enough, no need to have a made in India label removed or cash sent diverted.

    A statement by the Govt is not needed or necessary at this time, it would result in political suicide form the public backlash and Mumbai still fresh in the public mind. Funny how nations are ready to give billions for weapons to Pak and in a humanitarian crisis these paltry amounts.

    India is under no moral obligation to help in any sort of resources this time.

    IA took help to locate the dead bodies of Indian soldiers who where swept to the other side of Provisional Border. It would not be acceptable if IA crossed that provisional border to search the bodies. Pak Gov might have staged the issue of IA's encroachment into PA-controlled area. What courtesy shown today by PA in helping could have been same if IA has been on other side. But this does not bring enough credibility to Pak Gov for GOI to help them in any form.

    i dont get this sort of entitlement, it is purely india's prerogative to send across aid or not, but what i am not getting is why is the guardian so concerned on what india does or does not do. is Maseeh Rahman of pakistani origin?

    The title is somehow indeed confused. However, Guardian doesn't fail to highlight the UK's help to Pak even after recent protest, trying to stage UK's moral stance IMO. I couldn't see any strong opinion from author but just collection of news. I will just say the regional importance of India's move is finding recognition.

    @Maseeh Rahman

    A former New Delhi-based correspondent of Time magazine, Maseeh Rahman regularly reports on South Asia for the Hong Kong daily, the South China Morning Post.
