India Responds to Nepal Quake

Immediately following the massive earthquake which has devastated Nepal and shook parts of northern India, Indian PM Modi has quickly orchestrated a massive aid effort. Indian Army was the first to bring massive assistance, and even RSS is working there through local branches:

As the deathtoll passes over 4300, the inability of many Nepalese to get adequate assistance from their own govt in dealing with this crisis will probably result in a backlash in the next election, and a subsequent change in govt. Nepal's communists may be the likely beneficiaries.

It's interesting to note that Nepal is pointedly rejecting offers of international aid from Taiwan:

Taiwan's offer of aid is the only one that Nepal has refused.
