India has a good image among Afghans precisely because we don't interfere and it helps that we are not their immediate neighbors
Afghans will try and use any border to move drugs and since that is their primary commodity, wait till you try and stop it coming through.
Our non interference in Afghan affairs is a voluntary action, not depending upon any factor here. Sharing a direct border will only open way to provide humanitarian aid more easily. The small length of Wakhan strip along GB can have minimal impact on territorial issues and accessibility.
Good luck believing that drug circulation by Afghans can happen through that narrow strip with harsh climate.
These are all pipe dreams and we need to mind our own business and work on our economy.
PoK is very much relevant to India's business economically, politically and strategically.
China's non accessibility to Pak, India's accessibility to central Asia & middleast, both would impact India's stature greatly if were there.
India either can "mind its economy" or its "own business" as both can't go along. It will always have to challenge external factors to improve the fortunes of future.
We need to sit tight and work on making India a developed country and we should have no time for crazy destractions.
"Sitting in your place" and "minding own business" is good as peace summit speeches with no economic/political analysis.
India's economic limitations are a result of external factors, the result of India's porous neighborhood.
Neighborhoods in Europe, East Asia, Latin America and Africa explain that this greatly affect "business" of countries which could do great otherwise.
So no, no developed country became so "minding their own business". Either you are in an environment which is favourable towards your economy or you have to turn your neighborhood into such.
It is very much a part of "work on economy" than "sit and work on economy" which doesn't anything more than sit home and beat hot metal.
