Q.

India is the pioneer of non-align movement(NAM). We were never part of any military alliances. Yet our relationship with the neighbors is not as cordial as it should have been?. What are the reasons?

This is because India has 3 very negative points vis-a- vis her neighbours as the neighbours see it:
a) India has a big brotherly attitude towards her smaller neighbours
b) India sermonizes too much
c) India is perceived as a military and economic threat in the eyes of her neighbours.

China: Wanted to form a tripolar bloc, and saw NAM as a competitor- especially since it had Yugoslavia AND India AND North Korea (had an economy 3 times larger than the South till 82).

Pakistan: US puppet. NAM was an ALTERNATIVE so a COMPETITOR to the US, so the US used Pakistan to engage in hostility towards us. That's how Pakistan was shaped, internationally.

Sri Lanka: We should've thought more along the lines of "China & Hong Kong" than needlessly sending troops there in a conflict which didn't even concern us. That war damaged our PR by quite a bit in Sri Lanka, and not just in Northern Jaffna.

Nepal: We supported the wrong heads of state. The people have told us pretty bluntly, at the first national polling, who they like. And we're a democratic state, a state of the people. So we should naturally go by people's wishes. We didn't do that in Nepal.

Bhutan: Other than the Indo-Tibetian Mountain warfare corps, there is not much worth commenting ...more

India is the biggest Democrasy nation in the world and any allience with any country would tilt the world balance.So our Primeminister Mr Nehru remained neutral to get the most of the best from either side.That has given a fruit.For example he established country's first group of IIT's by taking tecnical experience from U.s,a,Britain,Russia.Today our engineers from these institutions are ruling the tchnological world.Our neighbours expect from us all sorts of favour because we are a big nation.Relations with the neighbour are never good since the history of mankind even before the time of christ and we are not exception.
