    This is a welcome move, we have always secured returns over and above what we had expected, whenever we have extended aid to any nation.

    One small gripe though, we offered 100 million to PNG but extended a line of credit of just 1 million military aid to Vietnam, even that is contingent on them spending it on Indian weapons, specifically Brahmos, I think. How many Brahmos can one buy with 1 million? 1? Maybe we can sink one Chinese fishing ship with that. There needs to be a better sense of proportion.

    We also recently made a breakthrough with Brunei, which has a very strategic location. We need to extend more funds to Vietnam and Cambodia and use our diplomatic clout to end the dispute between these to nations to holistically leverage our relations with PNG, Vietnam, Cambodia, Brunei against the common enemy China. Many seculars were suggesting that we should cultivate extensive ties with Philippines but I am glad we trashed the idea of befriending an American vassal state. The country keeps begging India to become an intermediary between Philippines-China conflict. They are welcome to pay full cash and buy Indian weapons if they like. With the addition of PNG, India has all the leverage it needs. No need for India to coddle them strategically.

    We didn't got what in ourselves. Sri Lanka is way ahead of India in HDI. India should focus on it's own citizen rather than helping foreigners.

    Compare Indian states who are comparable to Ceylon geograhically and demographically.
    They are even ahead of SL in HDI.
    Kerala
    D&D
    Lakshdweep
    A&N
    etc.
    Almost all small Islands have generally high HDI. Because, they do not have handle a population of $1.3 billion.
    They do not have invest on military, others do for their security.
    They don't have to see indulge in wars.
    They do not work on new technologies investing billions for mankind.
    They aren't working on futuristic cities or space tech for launching satellites for communications.
    They are dependent on others, biggies have to take responsibility for everyone.
    Biggies will make technologies, and small Islands will jump high after taking advantage over their HDI.
    India spends very low in percentage for such ventures.
    Meanwhile, it works faster than any country in eradication of problems or growth of HDI.
    Indian HDI grows 20-25 points per years (normally other countries grow 3-4 points at max).
    So, don't worry about us.
    We have overtaken most of Subcontinental nations in development and still growing fast. Who the damn is Sri Lanka then.? :biggrin2:
    Sri Lankan HDI is higher than India (small Indian states have HDIs higher than Sri Lanka),
    India has double+ urbanization, has more percentage of internet users, better institutions.
    For a giant country like India, money given foreigners is a pinch of salt.
    Population is 1.3 billions and aid given away is mere $1.6 billions. So, an average Indian taxpayer has to pay mere $1.23 per year for donations.
    That's why I quoted your first line in last.
    It's not only about aid, what did you contributed in Research and Development for mankind or at least for own country.
    Keep mind man, if there were no biggies like India, China, West, Japan or Russia in world, then, Cuba, Ceylon etc. who're boasting of high HDI would have washed away in Tsunamis, diseases and disasters.
