More 'Muckraker' on India

My latest column is a "reporter's notebook"-style reflection on India.

Meanwhile I see that the Senate must have read my last column, as it overwhelmingly approved the U.S.-India nuclear deal yesterday.

The Senate correctly rejected an amendment that would have required India to cut its military ties to Iran. My feeling is that India needs to take such steps, but should be persuaded to do so voluntarily -- not bludgeoned or bullied. The lathi doesn't get results in India, not during the Raj and not today.
