    I am an Indian and proud  of non-aligned movement and group of third world nations, founded by four premiers of India, Egypt, Yugoslavia,Indonesia. Nehru, Nasser, Tito, Sukarno.
    All these nations were weak at that time, economically, militarily.Idea was positive because when Europe formed EEC, G-7 under USA. then why not newly freed nations on single platform to cooperate and build economies.
    To protect third world nations from cold war or fierce competition between USA and USSR ,small should not be lambs to sacrifice.Unfortunately it had happened.In Congo, Patrick Lumumba was killed ,
    socialist leader of Iran was toppled and Shah of Iran was installed there for the benefit MNCs and west.
    Nehru was afraid and decided to form of group of backward nations to make them self reliant and mutual build economies
    After 1970 Nehru., Nasser, Sukarno disappeared from the scene .and Tito alone was not able to run.
    21 st century opened immense opportunities for India. At present Indian economy is able to shoulder some responsibilities  of third world and risk is necessary despite non-democratic regimes in third world.
    Indian economy is growing and sourcing material from third world nations , so make strong bond to balance economies and resist western hegemony.
