Peter Blair Henry
When I go to Indian reservations in the West, and especially to the Pine Ridge Reservation, I sometimes feel unsure where to put my foot when I open the car door. The very ground is different from where I usually stand. There are fewer curbs, fewer sidewalks, and almost no street signs, mailboxes, or leashed dogs.

Alexis de Tocqueville

The paranoia of Pakistan about India's supposed dark machinations should never be underestimated.
Every Indian outbreak that I have ever known has resulted from broken promises and broken treaties by the government.
If you look at Indian movies, every time they wanted an exotic locale, they would have a dance number in Kashmir. Kashmir was India's fairyland. Indians went there because in a hot country you go to a cold place. People would be entranced by the sight of snow.
