For India's Foreign Office, It Is USSR Still

The USSR may have disintegrated 18 years ago. But as far as babus in India's Foreign Office are concerned, there is no Russia: it's USSR still!

One knew that in India's babudom files take weeks and months to move from one table to another on the same room. But, in the records of the Ministry of External Affairs, properties allotted to Russian embassies are still registered in the name of the USSR! The only saving grace is that India's babus are not alone. There are five more countries who have still not made the changes. Must be all in the sub-continent.

It will not be surprising if in some records, India is still British India, Pakistan included!

Now we know why India is often caught napping by international developments and why its reactions are often too little and too late.
