My Comment on "A Great Divide" published on TIME

Walls Will Tear Us Apart
It is sad to know that India's building of a fence along its many miles of border with Bangladesh is the only solution to prevent migrants and terrorists from Bangladesh infiltrating India [Feb. 16]. I can understand that there may be economic disparities and security threats. However, before enclosing Bangladesh with a fence, India's government should place the top priority on helping its neighbor stand on its own feet by boosting Dhaka's economy and shining the way for its poorer, smaller neighbor. After all, India is one of the new superpowers of Asia. It should start acting the part.
