Question:
Though India is a big country, why is it afraid of a small country like Pakistan?

Answer:

Both are afraid of each other. India has the fear that Pakistan is arming itself with modern weapons. Only the other day, the former Prime Minister has accepted that she possessed nuclear weapons. Since then, they conducted nuclear explosions in no time after India's nuclear tests. The fear is that whenever those weapons are used, it could only be against India. Pakistan has also just the same kind of fear. Both countries suffer from abject poverty. Both are struggling against problems connected with the need to provide education, health-care and food, but because of distrust and fear, both are incurring heavy expenditure on security. If the clouds of distrust get diffused and the atmosphere of suspicion does not persist, the fear will also disappear.
