19 August 2008: Thinking "out of the box" does not come naturally to so-called Indian strategists. When it became inevitable that Parvez Musharraf was going, the National Security Advisor (NSA), M.K.Narayanan, was complaining, that too to a newspaper, that "political vacuum" would follow his exit. Somebody should have advised him to button up, hunker down, and manage the post-Musharraf situation with minimum fallouts on India.
