Nepal is still reeling from the impact of the economic blockade they faced in the last few months. I have seen anguish and anger in their eyes towards India and Indians for their apathy. Bangladeshis painfully feel that they have got the raw side of the water-sharing deal with India. Should we simply turn a blind eye to their suffering only to safeguard India's interests? Should we not challenge our government and companies to follow the principles of humanity, equality and justice?
