The root cause of instability, terrorism and hostility in South Asia stems from the unresolved nature of the Kashmir dispute between two rival countries, India and Pakistan. The Composite Dialogue Process date back to May 1997, when at Male, the capital of Maldives, the then Indian Prime Minister Inder Kumar Gujral and his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif mooted the idea of a structured dialogue or the Composite Dialogue Process (CDP). Based on cooperation, the peace process enabled the two countries (India and Pakistan) to discuss all contention issues particularly Jammu and Kashmir. The Ceasefire of 2003 held for so long that the current intensity and frequency of its violation along the Line of Control can only be equated with the fire and spark of Operation Parakram. Neither of the Directors General of Military Operations has broached the need for restoring peace and tranquility as agreed by Prime Ministers Manmohan Singh and Nawaz Sharif at the New York Summit. Who will bell the cat? Pehle aap. Now, it is expected that DGMOs of India and Pakistan will meet at the Wagah border on December 24 to discuss ways to ensure ceasefire on the Line of Control. The new India-Pakistan move for peace and tranquility along the LoC requires much sunshine diplomacy from both the civil and military officials of the two sides
