India is gloating at its success in sabotaging the 19th South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) Summit scheduled to be held in Islamabad on 15-16 November 2016 by deciding to boycott it. The corridor runs through the Pakistan Occupied Kashmir right up to the Gwador Port in Balochistan. India and Pakistan, and in a lesser sense everyone else, may now wail at all diplomatic forums over the ‘death’ of SAARC and blaming one another of killing it. The future of the South Asian region, SAARC is just one instrument, is in its peoples which the respective leaderships fear the most as reflected in the increasingly stricter visa regimes. Nepal has an additional technical reason too, particularly in the current context. The SAARC, a regional grouping comprising Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka, is now 35 years old.
