The Teesta river, worshiped for centuries by all who live along the path its carved—down from the snows of the mighty Kanchenjunga in Sikkim to where it joins the Brahmaputra, in what is Bangladesh today. The power of the river now also the leitmotif for a new kind of diplomacy, a symbol perhaps for the unfinished task of independence, 40 years after India helped Bangladesh win it from Pakistan. The question of sharing at least 25% of Teesta waters still hangs in the air between Delhi and Dhaka. But any agreement on water sharing will necessarily have to navigate and strike a delicate balance between the complexities of culture, faith, politics, and economic need for a natural resource that evokes as much passion and possessiveness as it contains the power to bridge differences.
