Given the recent crisis in Myanmar and its numerous residents fleeing to India, it has been a difficult situation for India to act promptly and not think about its long term implications. Although India has made promising decisions yet the crisis has highlighted India’s policy regarding refugees. The issue has not been new to Indian policymakers. It has been noticed time and again, whether it is the arrival of Bangladeshi nationals or the Rohingyas. India has always been the first choice for those who are fleeing its neighbouring countries in search of peace and livelihood but given its commitment towards its large population, it has always been a difficult task to take bold actions. Therefore, India’s very principles which make it great have been put into question now and it will be important to notice how India deals with this situation.
