- Now India is seeking a global leadership role so it has to make a choice. We, and many other governments believe that India should grab this opportunity and enter a new era of relations with the United States.
Or should that be dressed-down language? Somehow my version looks better, in the sense that at least it cuts to the point.
Not for the first time, I'm reminded of (that great American) Groucho Marx: "Please cancel my membership. I refuse to belong to a club that would admit me as a member." And I wonder why more of us Indians are not similarly reminded.
