The Indian author of the article should draw a major conclusion from her article. Dont get too much dependent / hooked on to western cultures and businesses for your livelihood. They are imperialistic. They will cut off your source of finance if you do not meet what they expect you to do. Today Iran is the only oil rich country in the world resisting western colonial ambitions. That is why they are “terrorists” or “pariahs” or any such word you like. The moment they become friends of west, all these titles will evaporate. The same is applicable to India. But India too is dependent on western countries for getting contracts for its IT industry. So not too much leverage there too. Very sad.
