Pakistani curry, Indian ingredients

Nitin Pai of The Acorn applauds the Pakistan government's decision to lift import duties on Indian meat, livestock, onions, garlic and tomatoes. He writes:
What is good for ingredients of curry is just as good for the rest of the economy as well: bilateral trade must not be held hostage to Pakistan’s Kashmir dogma. People-to-people contacts, that oft-repeated mantra of Indian foreign policy, is nothing more than a warm fuzzy feeling if it does not imply ringing cash registers on either side of the border.

Absolutely. And this is precisely what I was getting at here.
