By narrating in this chapter the stories of two ceasefires in South Asia, I want to address therefore the issue of the plural context of dialogues, and the singularity of the dialogic act that often succeeds in effacing the multiple traces. My intention is not to predict the final destiny of these two ceasefires, which still are holding at the time I write of them, but to bring to light an inherent paradox in the dialogic politics (briefly mentioned earlier), that a theory of dialogue has to take into account. Such a theory of dialogue will be then able to enunciate the reality of plural dialogue existing side by side of monologues that pass off as dialogues in this political world.
