    Now the country (Maldives) is witnessing a state of Emergency and former President and Supreme Court Judge were arrested, India should act fast for its citizens including tourists and expatriates (health care professionals and educators) stranded in that volatile quagmire.' Having said that, India is not in a position to carry out an Operation Cactus (Nov. 1988) type intervention as those times were different. Now bigger players are involved in Maldives affairs (read China) and India should be more cautious in its approach. We are not expecting to make another Nepal in Maldives, as far as our neighbourhood diplomatic ties are concern.
