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

Is it possible for the GoI "Custodian of Enemy Property" to attach holdings of all private-equity entities - e.g. Alibaba, Tencent, Steadview, Fosun, Shunwei Cap/ Xiaomi - originating from Chinese soil with immediate effect? This will amount to USD 5-6 Bn. / INR 35,000-45,000 Crore if we a...

Re: Wuhan Coronavirus Resource Thread

Here's a positive update from the FT: * Growth in cases (daily) is slowing in Italy , South Korea , & Japan . Iranian numbers don't seem trustworthy though. * UK is consistently below the 33% trendline (and diverging slowly) - so BoJo might just be doing something right. * Trajectory of cases in...

Very beautiful tribute Mr. Prasad... captures what most of us are feeling.

I've taken the liberty of sharing within my network.

Re: J&K News and Discussion - 2016

Very impressed by this gutsy move from Shah & Modi... straight out of the Mahabharata (messing up US-PAK dynamics, quelling legislative complications, & liberating the people of Ladakh) - though I still cannot figure out who is Arjun and who is Bhim :-) I've always supported INC even if it's...

Re: 2019 General Elections News and Discussion

I think this thread needs to sober up, it’s drunk too much with cool aid and missing many signs. Reading only news and opinions that fit this world view is not good.PP or other twitter handles are only parroting their world view and seeing what they want to see with their biases. BJP is not going t...

Deleted. You realize you're trolling when you appeal to reason and then proceed to resort to namecalling to make your case ? "demagogue' ? "henchman" ? Move along now.

Re: Indian Forces Strikes Pakistan Terrorist Camps

Leh can be equipped / upgraded to host high-end offensive capabilities - why not? It doesn't seem right to throw Bisons up-front while we have better options available . - Varun Do you consider them useless? If not in which situation will you use them? Where will you *hide* the Mig21's 'cos they st...

Re: Indian Forces Strikes Pakistan Terrorist Camps

the real travesty is we allow an MiG21 air base to function in a hot zone as Srinagar AB. Habal - Srinagar is in a high risk area; it is well within reach of Pakistani weapons. Given that we have a mix of airframes, it makes sense that some lower end airframes will be in a high risk area. You do no...

Re: Indian Forces Strikes Pakistan Terrorist Camps

There will be heavy action on the ground but I believe this is the end of the air war. Where were the MIG 29s in all this. Why were they not flying CAPs. Any statement from MEA on how the MIL was downed? IIRC Mig 29 are based out of Adampur. Squadron that engaged was out of Srinagar. It's great tha...
