Now that some self assertive nations went ahead with their pursuit to arm with WMDs, world started to realize the futility of the same. Worse,the prospect of WMDs falling into the hands of nonstate actors (Pakistan a case in point) looks more horrific and a sense of urgency took over.The age old Indian stand will become official UN policy in near future. The disarmament and denuclearization was a resolution India wanted UN to adopt since the beginning of nonaligned movement. Sadly, indias slogan is hijacked, it is prudent to table the resolution as indias. On a realistic note, no country will divulge from the ownership of the WWMDs.The Obama award is irrelevant to India, why should India care about the Nobel prize anyway when the committees are so biased or ill informed, I would ignore the Nobel prize.

Until recently I was under the impression that Nuclear Weapons capacity was integral for the security of any nation.3. Now I feel that India, which is the land of Gandhi should lead in renouncing nuclear weapons and all nations too should renounce nuclear arms as these are horrific weapons that are capable of destroying the humankind.Instead all nations can strive for improving the lot of the poor and disadvantaged people as progress on technology and financial fronts have benefited only less than 5 % of total population on Earth.

I don’t see how getting the Nobel would influence his policies.

Why is it relevant? I can not believe Reuters is publishing this type of discussion. This blogger should find some real work.
