Destinies of no other two countries in the world are so closely intertwined as that of india and A Geography more than any other factor is the most important determinant in their relations. Lying a southern slopes of the Himalayan ranges, Nepal cannot escape from being part of the indian subcon It is no wonder that the leaders of the two countries are never tired of swearing by age-old fies of hi geography, culture etc. However history of the last half-a-century brings into sharp focus a mismatch relationship. Lack of appreciation of each other’s concerns only created misunderstanding between This resulted in confidence deficit in their relations. If despite a liberalized trade and transit regime that Delhi afforded to Nepal and a generous economic cooperation programme, Kathmandu was niggard sharing the security concerns of India and measly in extending cooperation in hamessing the w resources of the Himalayan rivers that would not only bring prosperity to Nepal but bring to an end in search for energy security, then there must be something amiss in their understanding of each ot perceptions. The documents gathered here bring out the misperceptions of one about the other over past five decades. Both need to engage in a serious exercise for confidence building to create a fun trust. Trust cannot be bargained. It comes only by trust. Let the past not be the enemy of the future but beckoning light. China-Nepal relations on the other hand present a picture in contrast. Nepal convenie ignores the fact that China even though a contiguous neighbour is a distant neighbour as demonstrated the events of last half-a-century. No country can run away from the dictates of history and geography. time that Nepal makes peace with these facts and recognizes that its relations with india must be differe not special, vis-à-vis China.
