Re: Survey: What got you interested in defense matters?

(1) Why are you interested in defense/security issues, especially those relating to India? The recent Kargil conflict and what I had heard from a friend who had gone to Kashmir valley in 1989 on business (was chilling to the bone to hear him describe the chants of "Pukistan Z...bad") (2) How (or whe...

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

If it is only BRites (esp. IITians as you say)who are fascinated by American Technology why then would the rest of the world acknowledge (albeit grudgingly in many quarters) the US as the sole superpower today? Excluding very minor areas the US has unquestionable superiority in terms of technical ca...

Re: India's Inspirational Personalities

Okay - I am sorry to label you a pinko w/o proof. Just got the B/P higher when I saw some of those adjectives. --- To get back to the topic, "Arivoli Iyakkam" which espouses literacy and tries to educate the poor masses in and around Madras is one of my favourite inspiring organizations - They had p...

Re: India's Inspirational Personalities

On the one hand it is okay for a person to be suspicious of the intentions of VHP in educating tribals in India. OTOH, people in BR are judged to be quick on the trigger if they are suspicious of folks suddenly putting a politiocal spin with such juicy adjectives as "Watch!" and "Front organization"...

Re: India's Inspirational Personalities

AID (Association for India's Development) is a truly inspiring organization. From humble beginnings (I was at UMCP when the organization started with just a few people)this organization has consistently grown in the scope of the projects - from just funding good organizations such as Udahavum Karang...

Re: Ancient (and recent) Indian Mathematics

Mostly the veering away (from Math studies at Univ. level)happens due to peer pressure and lack of job opportunities. I know of a person who was doing a Ph.D in number theory at a US university(described by many as the queen of mathematical sciences) who took up C programming to get a job here in th...

Re: Women's status in Indian society

Someone in one of the posts mentioned that the onlookers do not generally agree/throw their weight(literally?) behind the victim in the case of eve teasing. From what I have seen, if the girl objects and brings the attention of onlookers in the "Singara Chennai" buses, the general trend is to use th...

Re: Pakistani plot to explode dirty nuke foiled

Is it possible that it was disclosed to India before (last week) and later it was made public since they will eventually know/legal requirement/need to get SC approval for treating the arrested individual as "enemy combatant"?
