India - Pakistan Relations

India - Pakistan relationship is a 'Seesaw Game' with peace and conflict as its two poles. An extreme fluctuation in relationship between the two countries is frequently seen since their emergence in 1947.

As a result, India Pakistan relationship is anything but simple. It is characterized by periodic ups and downs and intermittent breakdowns; sometimes it swings to the extreme end, verging to an all-out war and then at times a great camaraderie is witnessed between the two.

What is seen in the Indo Pak relationship is the cycle of peace and conflict repeating in phases? The governments of both the countries invariably return to negotiation after a protracted phase of conflict and after peace process outliving its life span, the agenda of conflict once again dominates the India Pakistan relationship. However, the silver lining in the tormented relationship is that the disruption in dialogue is never permanent.

India Pakistan RelationThere have been a number of opportunities when India and Pakistan may have capitalized on the peace dialogues and could have built a deeper relationship between them, but all such chances invariably have been fritted away by the two nuclear-armed rivals

Even though there is a consensus that normalization of relationship holds a greater benefit for both the countries, it's the old issues of conflict that are; Kashmir, terrorism, nuclear arms, land boundary disputes that pose challenge to both the countries. The uncertainty in India Pakistan relationship has a telling impact on the future of regional stability that remains critical as well.
