Making the excuse of "its better than being buddies with Pakistan" is really not a valid arguement here. Why does it have to be an option between India or Pakistan? We should do what serves our country best and think about other country's interest as a distant secondary goal. We don't need to suck up to India and we definitely need to stay the f*** away from extremist infested Pakistan.
The matter of Transit needs to be discussed and debated in the Parliament so that the we know what are the pros and cons regarding the deal... although I doubt the two ladies would stop their eternal chulachuli and bring some sort of sanity back into our politics
Get well Bruce
