INDUS AND GANGES CLASH OF VALLEYS IN ASIAN CENTURY
Keywords:Pakistan, India, Ganges, Indus, Kargil, Asian Century
Pakistan and India represent two distinct riparian civilisations that flourished around River Indus and River Ganges almost 4000 years ago. For last 2000 years these two valleys have been at a perpetual state of animosity. Since 1947, Pakistan and India have fought conventional wars in 1947, 1965, 1971, and a non-conventional conflict over Siachen is going on since 1982. Both adversaries have attained nuclear capabilities in 1998 and fought another war in Kargil in 1999. Since then an uneasy peace is prevailing between the two nations. This paper looks at the relations between these nations in a geo-historical perspective and is an effort to prove that it is from 'Current of History’ that a logical path based upon pure reason for Asian Century is predicted.
