Union ministers miffer with rude SPG at 7 RCR

Quote:
Union Ministers Dr Farooq Abdullah [ Images ], Ghulam Nabi Azad [ Images ], Jairam Ramesh [ Images ] and G K Vasan have complained to Cabinet Secretary Ajit Seth about the rude behaviour of the Special Protection Group personnel at 7 Race Course Road, the prime minister's residence.

Cosequently, Seth apologised on behalf of the SPG and promised that the commandoes would henceforth behave politely.

An angry Abdullah narrated the incident to the cabinet secretary on Thursday before Prime Minister Manmohan Singh [ Images ] arrived for the Cabinet meeting. Nabi and Ramesh said their Cabinet papers were checked when their cars were entering the prime minister's house to attend the meeting of the Union Cabinet.

"This is not the first time; at least four or five such incidents have taken place this year," Vasan said.

"We will go back if the SPG does not learn the basics. Such security exercises are appreciated inside the PM's house complex, but not on the road. Are we unwanted elements inside 7 Race Course Road? Let me bring this to the notice of the prime minister," added Abdullah.

Seth is said to have apologised to the disgruntled ministers with folded hands . When the ministers saw the PM arriving, the issue was treated as closed.

The SPG had pushed aside a Bahujan Samaj Party MP inside the Parliament corridors during the Budget session. And it was Pranab Mukherjee [ Images ], finance minister then, who tendered an apology as the leader of Lok Sabha.

"The SPG will never learn; they are rude. The SPG team working for Sonia Gandhi [ Images ] and Rahul often ill-treat MPs," said a Union minister.

SPG wants counter-assault vehicles for VVIP convoys

Quote:
Sources said the SPG has sought approval to buy 10 Defence Sherpa-2 counter assault vehicles and 6 Defence Sherpa-2 quick reaction team vehicles from Renault Trucks Defense at a cost of nearly Rs 51 crore.

Sherpa-2 (now Sherpa Light Scout) is a 4x4 tactical and light armored vehicle customized with ballistic, mine and improvised explosive devices kits for tactical missions such as scouting, patrol and convoy escort. It is a high mobility vehicle, able to cross any obstacle including gradients of up to 100 per cent and can carry 5 persons.


Another needless import when local manufacturers can easily fulfill the need.

A request from some person in Switzerland:

Quote:
Hello

I am looking for a girlfriend of mine who lives here in Switzerland of her father. This was before her baby back in England. This was from 1943 to 1944 in Switzerland interned. He had previously taken refuge in Italy from a German prisoner of war camp in Switzerland and had been able to save the.

His name is Kadar CHULAM. Born on 2 March 1919 in akalghar.He served with the 3 / 7 jput regiment with the rank of sepoy. His military number is: 16 570
His parents were Ibrahim & Saeran
times to address was: akalghar jagraon Dep. Ranka india.Address: Ludehana

Unfortunately we have had no more and left the country since Mr.Chulam from Switzerland, we lose track.
We are not sure whether Chulam is really written. in the subject, itis also written to some of Gulam

Maybe they can help us or can you tell us to whom we could contact us.


Many Thanks

Patrick Schlenker
Switzerland

"Schlenker Patrick" <patrick@kostueme-bs.ch>



Most likely the soldier's name is Kadar Ghulam of Akalgarh, Ludhiana. From 3/7 Rajput. Did they serve in Italy during WWII?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Akalgarh,_India

Anybody from Ludhiana, Punjab can help them?

Must be an awesome story of escape from Italy from German POW camp and refuge in Swizerland and have a child over there.

Would make a super Bollywood story.

What do they mean by rude, Were they physically checked, if yes , Were the security personnel following protocol?

If they were treated comparably at a forgien airport (say by chance New York) would they squak( so loud?)

We live in a country where our neighbours can just about do anything, They come from states where these neighbours had made a paradise into hell. The brethren of these very gentlemen have ensured that democracy
thrived and indirectly these very politicians are earning their dhal roti. Maybe they should ask their security personnel to ensure that their personal security does not frisk visitors etc, Whats good for the goose should be good for the gander.

Would anyone know if Dipti Bhalla & Kunal Verma, who produced programmes like the 'Salt of the Earth' have any web presence - blog, company/personal websites, anything?

Please share, if you do

Ex-Army chief joins stir against Haryana N-plant

Quote:
The former Army chief said, "I visited the village and saw how even women are against the nuclear power plant. The land where the power plant is to be set up is fertile and farmers totally depended on this land. About 1,500 farmers will go landless. It will also hit the landless labourers who work for these farmers. Where will they go? There should be a debate before setting up a nuclear power plant."

He said nuclear power is destructive and gave the example of Japan's Fukushima tragedy. "There are many resources from where we can get electricity. Then why nuclear power plant?" he asked.


I think Gen VKS desperately needs new advisers. He's obviously not an expert in energy issues so why is he trying to get in this protest? Agreed that he is a citizen with full rights to do so, I think his time is better spent by keeping focus on the corruption in defence deals and exposing nepotism in promotions. He was so vocal in the Print/electronic media during his term but he's totally disappeared now. In fact now is a much better time to go onto electronic media and initiate debates on these matters.

Agreed that the general may not be an expert on energy and power issues, but the he is correct in pointing out that building a nuclear reactor over fertile land is heights of stupidity

had a newbie doubt that I would love for the aviation guru's on the forum to answer.

When comparing specs for the LCA vs J 10 in wikipedia (i know its not the most authentic source), I see that the LCA has a speed of 1,350 km/hr at sea level i.e. Mach 1.27. J 10 is advertised as having a max speed of mach 1.2 at sea level.

However, when looking at max speed at altitude, LCA is quoted as having a speed of mach 1.8 and J 10 of mach 2.2.

Is this a case of Shanghai statistics? A plane that is faster at sea level ought to be faster at altitide too. Or am I mistaken.

Thanks

Had a newbie doubt for quite a long time.

Could IAF review Brazilian Erieyes and compare their performances with the indigenous CABS AEW?
India could pay some money (as a secret part of the package) for the 13 ERJ-145s that we are buying from Brazil or atleast return the favour by sharing comparative performance figures of our CABS AEW.

Jeffry F. Smith, "Commanding an Air Force Squadron in the Twenty-First Century: A Practical Guide of Tips and Techniques for Today's Squadron Commander"
English | ISBN: 1585661198 | 2003 | 197 pages |


Quote:
In Commanding an Air Force Squadron in the Twenty-first Century, Lt Col Jeffry Smith updates and expands upon Col Timothy T. Timmons's Commanding an Air Force Squadron (1993). The newer book preserves the framework and overall feel of its predecessor while providing more current information about and additional support to some dated topics. Colonel Smith demonstrates an excellent grasp of the challenges faced by squadron commanders.

Blessed with an easy writing style, he walks the reader though many types of issues that commanders deal with throughout their tenure. Although the author takes a light but serious approach to topics (note such chapter rifles as "Cats and Dogs" and "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly"), he does not shy away from difficult topics--closing down a unit or the death of a squadron member, for example.

Newbie Question: US sold 2 minehunters MHC-56 Kingfisher & MHC-57 Cormorant to the Indian Navy.
All the12 minehunters have been decommissioned and sold just after about 10 years of service.
As a result US doesn't have any coastal based minehunters, mostly are minesweepers.

It was probably because of
globalsecurity wrote:
Osprey and her sisters' retirements were making the way for a new class of warship known as the littoral combat ship or LCS. LCS will continue where Osprey leaves off by carrying on and refining the Navy's critical mission of countering mine threats to the nation. Osprey and Robin completed decommissioning maintenance availabilities, then be towed to Beaumont, Texas.


However there are issues which Mine countermeasures module of LCS(littoral combat ship).

The mine countermeasures module also continues to have ongoing issues, with Rear Admiral Frank Pandolfe reporting dissatisfaction with the performance and looking to replace it with a modified airborne laser mine detection system.

Any specific reasons why the minehunters were decommissioned so quickly :?: ?

Have a question about ToT? Does ToT come with all engineering, manufacturing & certification documentation of the product? Or is it just product Blueprints along with "transfer" of manufacturing processes knowledge along with required support services documentation? To me, logically it should be the latter. No sane firm, unless its a complete buyout, would hand over their hard earned product development knowledge to customer even if the customer is paying boat loads of money.

@Avinandan, they moved to robotic minesweepers IIRC. also USN depended on allied minesweepers during GW1.

Rahul Saar,
Wikipedia wrote:
A minehunter is a naval vessel that actively detects and destroys individual naval mines. Minesweepers, on the other hand, clear mined areas as a whole, without prior detection of mines. A vessel that combines both of these roles is known as a mine countermeasures vessel (MCMV).


Did you mean robotic minesweepers are actually robotic minehunters ?
US actually have 12 Avenger Class MCMVs in active service, however they are earlier class of ships than the Osprey Minehunter class as the first ship was commissioned on 1987. Does that mean that US now doesn't have the need of minehunting at all ? If that is the case why did they build the Osprey class Minehunters later than that and eventually sold off early in their life time ?

Please refer the below link
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_mine_warfare_vessels_of_the_United_States_Navy:--
You could see that USN has done away with all the Coastal Minehunters (MHC) altogether probably on account of LCS.

Dear fellow BRFites,

This year my friend visited the RIAT show and shared some pics with me. Please find below the link to access the same.

Held annually each July at RAF Fairford, Gloucestershire, the Royal International Air Tattoo, the world's largest military airshow, has gained the well-earned reputation as one of the UK's top outdoor family events.

Warm Regards.

PMO recommends Adm Nirmal Verma as the High Commissioner to Canada.

Quote:
NEW DELHI: Former naval chief Nirmal Verma has been appointed India's new high commissioner to Canada. Verma's appointment was cleared by the President on Thursday after PMO recommended his name.

Verma's appointment is interesting because the external affairs ministry had earlier recommended additional secretary Basant Gupta's name for the position. Gupta, who heads the passport and visa division of MEA, is said to be close to foreign minister S M Krishna. He played a key role in implementing Krishna's initiative to open Passport Seva Kendras across the country.

PMO, however, rejected his candidature and asked MEA to instead recommend Verma. The foreign ministry had no choice but to recommend the former Navy chief.


Very interesting that within weeks of his retirement GOI sent him to as a High Commissioner to a major country. The last Chief, Adm Sureesh Mehta was sent within 6 weeks of retirement to New Zealand as the High Commissioner. Naval diplomacy? Is there a larger plan by the GOI?

Hello everyone,

This might sound like a stupid question, as even though I have been watching this place for a while, I still get lost, but does BR maintain anything like a list of recommended websites to use for research on Indian military history matters? I am talking about online resources like PHI or SDSU's Project South Asia.

Thanks in advance.

Hello folks,

I've been reading up on 1962 China war, and regardless of source, there is no discussion on what Chinese withdrew. They had occupied Tawang (that they now want) - so why did they withdraw especially in Arunachal Pradesh ?

Was it that - they were afraid of their supply lines lasting through the winter or were they apprehensive of the reinforcements being brought in ?

One reason is that unlike Aksai chin, Arunachal including Tawang was relatively more populated and hence the threat and likelihood of an indigenous resistance breaking out was immense for the Chinese Army. Couple this with the fact that Chinese at that point of time were already overstretched in Tibet( remember the timeline is in 1960's) and supply lines through Tibet were most probably not developed completely and were not robust.

Actually by withdrawing from Arunachal, Chinese saved their own honor. They did the same when they invaded Vietnam. And then to hide their own weakness they proclaimed that the above actions were intended to punish the belligerent nations like India and vietnam. Just think which nation sacrifices their thousands of soldiers ostensibly only for teaching the enemy a lesson.

Enterprise was headed back to Virginia following a regularly scheduled deployment when the Sept. 11 attacks happened. As soon as the ship's captain saw the attacks he turned around without orders to steam toward southwest Asia, where it later launched some of the first attacks against Afghanistan. The ship's captain was Adm. James A. Winnefeld, who now serves as the vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff

Wonder if we had any such instances with our forces!!

That is incorrect reporting. He was ordered to head to SW Asia.

This video shows the soldiers of 2/1 RNZIR Battalion performing their Unit haka, powerfully acknowledging the lives and feats of their comrades who died in Afghanistan as they come onto the Unit's parade ground. It is also an emotive farewell for they will leave via the waharoa (the carved entrance way) for the very last time.

Note the sniper who is the honour guard leading the hearse in a full ghillie suit.

Honestly the best farewell I have seen for a fallen soldier yet!

For aerospace afficiandoes:

Quote:
Irwin E. Alber, "Aerospace Engineering on the Back of an Envelope"
English | ISBN: 3642225365 | 2012 |


Engineers need to acquire “Back-of-the-Envelope” survival skills to obtain rough quantitative answers to real-world problems, particularly when working on projects with enormous complexity and very limited resources. In the case studies treated in this book, we show step-by-step examples of the physical arguments and the resulting calculations obtained using the quick-fire method. We also demonstrate the estimation improvements that can be obtained through the use of more detailed physics-based Back-of-the-Envelope engineering models. These different methods are used to obtain the solutions to a number of design and performance estimation problems arising from two of the most complex real-world engineering projects: the Space Shuttle and the Hubble Space Telescope satellite.

Don't know where to post but here are some of my 2013 wishlist and hope we achieve these :

1. GSLV and Indian cryo success
2. GSLV Mk 3 test launch with no C-25 success, ground test of C-25 stage success
