Re: India's Border Security with China and Pakistan-2020 - Part 2

Given we are a status quo power, our biggest fault is not having a dominating airpower. We waste money on keeping people employed in DPSU and imports.. Asking Gurus here , what is the reason for 42 Squadrons. I mean such a strange number. Why not 50 or even aim for 100. Every squadron need not have...

SHA or Superior Han Army is what Hari Nair ji proposed How about simply, CCP Militia ? It is fairly accurate given their antics and the fact that they serve the CCP rather than China, does not insult Chinese ethnicity and hence can find wider acceptance outside of the BENIS thread, etc. How about C...

It helps, in getting extra weapons, acclimatization of more troops, ensuring repairs of our existing assets done. Remember 71 war, when as per some of the stories I have , PM IG wanted to go to ...

And he talks in the video about going back to vedas due its being India's root. If there is one PM steeped in a knowledge of India's ancient past it is Modi (and PVN before th...
