There is a simple reply to the question Lavakare raises - to keep an arms length with our neighbor, he/she has to maintain the same with us. Indifference works only if it is a two way process.
What India is trying to do with Pakistan is called engagement - not wooing. Engagement is a legitimate diplomatic option... and trade is certainly one of the ways we can exercise that option. Now, friendlship would mean things like supplying arms or providing intelligence helpful to them (and not us!) etc. That is definitely not what the two nations are discussing.
I am happy that after a long while, Mr.Lavakare has realized that a 100 yard rush is simply not possible for India.
