Re: 2019 General Elections News and Discussion

Welcome back. DMK sweep? My good case for DMK was 30-35. Gee thanks :-) Even NDTV's Sreenivasan Jain is saying there is no sweep by DMK. AIADMK+, that includes BJP, could cross 10+. That is nearly 25% of the 39 seats. Last one year there was a concentrated effort by DMK and their supporters to pain...

Re: 2019 General Elections News and Discussion

Hillary visited Jayalalitha at that time as the calculation at that time was, in case if BJP fails to get majority then someone close to them can become PM and Jaya is considered for that. Remember Cho speech in front of Modi and Advani 8n Chennai. So as usual US wanted to establish that connection....

Re: Indian Forces Strikes Pakistan Terrorist Camps

Except for the fact that we have them on the run, I don't see any other reason to keep the pot boiling... we came with an objective that the terror strikes by terrorists will be costly. We proved by destroying their facility and killing about 300 of them. We also proved that we are not going to be w...

Re: Currency Demonetisation and Future course of Indian Economy

Venkat_r, question is, what is that you wanted out of demonitization? Did you expect all the people will declare their black money and all the corrupt will go to jail?

Re: Latest Chinese boast: should we shiver or die laughing?

ok, so we have to scrap the assumption that Chinese PLA is conscript-based, though there are obviously other issues with the quality of their soldiers. We can scrap the assumption that Cheen is even a half-decent military power in any shape or form. They build lots (and lots and lots) of shiny new ...

Well it is not about starting the history - you can even do that and if you continue that, Chinese will still come up short in their justification...

Re: Managing Chinese Threat (09-08-2014)

China would be stupid to open another front in south with India when they have to deal with SoKo, US and Japan in their door step... On the other hand, India can actually attack Pakistan and take over the Gilgit province :D

Re: General Indian Military News & Discussion

I think Suresh Prabhu will be a good option.. he has shown good changes in railways... VKSingh - even though an army hand - guess will be too controversial... but definitely a bad news for India as the expectation was military changes would be pushed thro immediately after the election. ..

Why should we worry about what Global Times has to say on this subject - especially the tenor? Who cares anyway? Probably it is written to the local audience and hence being jingoistic...
