Re: BRM / SRR Articles Thread

Any volunteers have access to Adobe InDesign? I happen to have access. Issue can be generated fairly quickly. I am interested in volunteering. Actually I had volunteered and rendered one version of BRF way back in 2002 in PDF form for printing, but the general initiative fizzled off. I am reachable...

I can't believe the level of Scriptural and Doctrinal Knowledge on BR is so low that its a shame. A teekha, salty, little bit of sour and pungent, freshly cooked meat is rajasic. The same meat becomes Tamasik after it becomes stale and tastless, and kept not in a preserved state of modern time. Meat...

Re: Agni test of 09 January 2003

This event marked the end of the "missile gap" and the start of a ICBM based nuclear deterrent. Within the year an operational SAC force comprising some 9 missile batteries was raised. I shall leave the rest unsaid Thanks Sunil for putting the launch in perspective. Now it makes sense that the laun...

Re: Time to rethink NFU

Excuse for ignorance, but What is the relationship between NFU, FU and pre-emptive nuclear attack? Pre-emptive Nuking can be first use, it can ALSO be NFU compliant. If we have PROVABLE evidence that a nuke attack is being readied for deployment, we can pre-emptively nuke Pak and still the NFU is be...

Re: Time to rethink NFU

I want some clarifications from Gurus, Will the knowledge that a missile has been readied for launch with nukes itself warrant a nuclear retaliation from India? Or should we wait for the missile to be launched, watch it fly and then see the cloud to signal our counter-launches? Now, after General Mu...

Re: India's missile defence - Arrow vs. S-300

I agree Div., One needs to get the latest and electronically superior Arrows as well as have a II tier experience/expertise-wise superior S-300 series to be sure enough! Like having both Mirages and SUs in the AF. Protection of just the four metros will be deterrent enough.. right/wrong? TSP is not ...

Re: India's Inspirational Personalities

Subramanya Bharathi stands out clearly as the 'National Poet' of India. (He is the only poet to have the honour to be called thus in post-independent India) His songs aroused patriotism of Southerners... the effect can still be felt if one lisens to those songs. He advocated equality of women, of hu...

So don’t worry about Russian Economy affecting its military capability. Russia has ...
