Re: Indian Roads Thread

Putting up trees (not shrubs) anywhere near highways is a stupid idea, even more so in the median. In case of vehicles veering into the median area without barricades, it can be instant death. Then there is the maintenance and trimming of branches etc. that will be required periodically. Just open ...

Re: Chinese president's visit. "Thaw or Cold War"?

Rather than being emotionally invested in Chinese incursions, it's more meaningful to see them as what they are - coldly calculated actions being used to check how much Modi's hardline rhetoric is backed by resolve to act. Handwringing does not serve a purpose. Wait to hear about what happened next...

Re: Chinese president's visit. "Thaw or Cold War"?

Why cant we detain these 'civilians' squatting on our territory. Clearly the Chinese have adapted to the Modi admin's policy of creating living spaces on the borders to prevent encroachment.

Something is sure ticking off the Chinese and to me, that's a good sign!
