It is the high time for India to review its relationship with its neighbouring countries and go for a fresh diplomatic relations. The ‘blame game’ and ‘party politics’ has doomed this nation. 9/11 was the last terrorist attack in the US till date. But constant attacks on this country has made us to rethink “Is the value of Indian life that cheap..?” </li></ul>
