I want to write a timeline for this, but I'd like to hear out if anyone has any thoughts on how likely this is to happen & what they think about this TL One way I see if happening is that Bangladesh-Pakistan conflicts spread out to India and India decides to outright annex Bangladesh into India territory and bring propaganda themselves as bringers of peace to war-torn Bangladesh. Another thing would be the global backlash from this. I think US & western 'democracies' would denounce this act as territorial ambitions but India would be backed by USSR & PRC and would go through with it. Another way I see this is that Indira Gandhi forces the Provisional Government of Bangladesh to become a part of India in exchange for military help in their struggle. Internally, there would eventually have to be a policy of appeasement towards Bangladeshi people and integrate them as Indians. Calcutta would become the capital of the joint state of Bangladesh. Also, any suggestions for readings about this topic would be appreciated.
