    I don't want to come across as pessimistic, but this is interesting (from the article):

    Nothing wrong with a healthy dose of pessimism. This is going to be a very long process, but great alliances are, at their heart, based upon shared cultural values; and in the long term, India and the US have more in common with each other than either has with cold-war partners.

    I agree. I also believe, a slow but steady progress will lead to long lasting friendship.

    It's like a hare and tortoise race. :)
