Curtains Fall on High Technology Denial
The nuclear agreement that is to be signed between India and US will allow India to access technologies which have been denied till now on the ground that it can also be used to manufacture nuclear weapons. India's political parties do not understand the momentous importance of this development as they are still imprisoned in cold-war rhetoric in a world that is evolving into a polycentric balance of power system. Access to these technologies can help India develop fast into a world economic power.
