    Restoration of Democracy in Mynamar is the acid test of QUAD, Two of its members, Japan and India are two major investors in Mynamar, other than China. Japan is the largest investor.
    Both must usevtgeir economic clout on Tatmadaw for early restoration of Democracy.

    India , which though has supported the UN call for restoration of democracy in Mynamar but has now closed its borders to stem influx of refugees, which now stands at 700.

    In a similar manner, ASEAN nations too have given a very muted response to abrogation of Democracy at Mynamar.

    The protesting Myanmarees / Burmese are from all sections of the society. The backlash against Chinese interests in Mynamar proves that Chinese aren’t popular in Mynamar, a feeling India must built on to reduce Chinese influence in S Asia. To achieve this, India must influence Tatmadaw to restore Democracy.

    With over 300 protesters dead in Mynamar, it appears that people in Mynamar donot have a friend to help them, though all champion Democratic rule.

    A tragedy is unfolding in our neighbourhood, a ten year old nascent democracy is being stifled under the very shadow of the world’s largest democracy.
