I am delighted that this article has come to realise the fact that real picture is unlike the one which was projected. So we have to come to terms with the delay in the deal.
But another point needs consideration. When dealing with America or the EU it will be worthwhile to look at the bigger picture. Promising is different from delivering. The problem with us Indians is that we are very preposterous. Nothing is final until you clear the final hurdle. Till then it’s only promises.
Like in this case the deal can't get through final hurdles. And next time around things will be different and I don't see this deal going through again. The impression in here is that India got too much leeway without any strings attached. So if the deal, in its present form, comes next year I will not be very optimistic about it.
I think we lost the plot again. Maybe all this was farce. Also as the article pointed out that Korean and Iranian situation which will further deteriorate Indian side need to think of an alternative option.
Be realistic and don’t get hopes too high. Good luck, India.
