    The final surrender itself was so epic.

    The Americans completely failed to anticipate that.

    It was Narashima Rao who started the process.

    He decided in 1992 to bring into the open India's relations with Israel,

    India established semi official relations with Israel in 1991, although informal ties had existed previously, involving such figures as Moshe Dayan.

    Israel opened its Embassy in Delhi in February 1992 and India opened its Embassy in Tel Aviv on 15 May 1992.

    Arms diverted from Iran. That's interesting, but the Shah was in power then.

    It was brokered by Lt Gen Jacob, who was the Chief of Staff Eastern Command that spearheaded the Liberation of Bangladesh.

    He is a Jew from Kolkata.

    There's an old english proverb that "a friend in need is a friend indeed" and Israel has proved this more than once,so it's time for us to stand by them and support their cause when they'll need us as India is grateful to them for helping us more than once when we needed it the most.it's high time for us to take this Indo-Israeli relationship to a completely different level....
