A Great Divide between India and Bangladesh

Below is my comment on the article of "A Great Divide", Page 22 to 27, TIME magazine dated on February 16, 2009.

It is sad to know that building a fence along the vast miles of borders with Bangladesh on the part of the Indian government is the only solution to stop flooding immigrants and terrorists from Bangladesh to India

I can understand that there may be differences of religion, economic disparities and perception gap of terrorist threats between the two countries as you pointed out in your article. However, before completing a long fence surrounding Bangladesh as the mere solution, Indian government should place the top priority on helping her neighbor stand its own feet economically by boosting her own economy and accepting more immigrants as one of the newly emerged economic superpowers in Asia.
