  1. A country that actually bombed a Dam in Nepal so that their river water would not decrease can only be treated with respect -radioactive respect

  2. If the Ministry of Foreign Affairs / Ministry of Interior has the list of Pakistani prisoners as furnished by the Government of India on 1st July, 2011 then why is not being publicized in the daily newspapers. Is it a classified document?
