    Partition was never what the majority of masses wanted be it mainland India, North West India(Pakistan) or East Bengal even Sri Lanka, Burma,Nepal were connected to mainland India . The British were doing all formulas on the Indian nations by keeping the international politics in mind and this was started from the 1830's.

    Indian National congress main goal was to liberate whole India and unite all the Indian nations under one banner but division started in the name of religion which let to the rise of religious based leaders who were in real having no control over the masses but the Britisher gave them the stand to grow and these parties got the funds from the British both Muslim league and hardliner and moderate Hindu groups . and the result was in the division of country into many pieces . East and West Pakistan (Muslims), Sri Lanka, Burma and Bhutan (Buddhist), Nepal and India (Hindu) .

    Thanks, but NO! The rebellion against Pakistan would simply be redirected against India had we annexed East Bengal.

    Leaving them independent & respecting their territorial integrity has given our reputation the sort of credibility that no amount of annexed Bengali land could have given.

    And those who worry about the Chicken's neck, Chillax. Bhutan and Nepal are not about to turn hostile any time soon. Their lands will give our Army the depth we need in case of a conflict in the NorthEast.

    It's not the chicken's neck itself, but the overall lack of infrastructure in the North East that is hurting us. It's not like the road & rail network is excellent in the 7 sister states and hampered only by the siliguri corridor.

    What is needed here is this that all the Sub continent countries work together without any reunification and this is a harsh reality that if any thing goes wrong in any of the neighboring country then the refugee problem would be always on India . And we are being taking all of them in be it east bengal , Sri Lanka , Afghanistan, Tibet and even the Burmese rohingya.

    True. A lot has changed in the previous century with respect to warfare. It's no longer a World of Might is Right or Finder's Keepers.

    We must simply accept our modern boundaries and work towards removing internal threats first. Good cooperation with friendly neighbours and a watchful eye on hostile neighbours is also necessary.

    Yes things have changed in sub continent after the nukes , If not then we would be still being setting bullied .

    Neighboring countries should give up the jealousy attitude and start to work in co operation without giving the chance for outsiders and keep things within the region and this can change things on ground and improve trade .

    Then how is CPM is thrown out in a massive vote against it ?? For WB India comes first then anything else... China or no China... No one supports China in WB excepts few Rascals and those very few are exceptions.... I have never seen anyone supporting China in WB... please get your facts right...

    This very WB gave S.P. Mukherjee and likes of N. Chatterji deos it mean WB is pro RSS ???

    Let me quote what my late father used to tell me when I was a kid... "There is no Cummunist in India rather they are rank oppertunist"

    No one supports Chinese but there is no doubt that Chinese and some other powers are exploiting the situation in West Bengal, Orissa from where the Maoists are getting weapons . Yes Bangladeshi immigration is a problem but in this bengali citizens of India should not be called as illegal Bangladeshi.

    Re: Should India have annexed East Bengal in 1971 instead of liberatin

    I've said in other threads on many occasions here & elsewhere that we did a mistake by not annexing regions like Chittagong and also areas around our chickens neck to get a bit more depth. For the rest of it, no its good we didn't annex the entire state. But a blunder not to have gotten Chittagong. It would have given us access to north east by sea.

    Annexing Chittagong or even East Bengal for the whole would be seen as rising against the new world war and the way Shiekh Mujeeb ur Rahman was assassinated things started to changed that assassination was set back and he was assassinated shortly after the Pokhran I

    chickens neck ?
