Re: CT and COIN operations in India: News, Images and Discussion

I found it strange as I was following the news closely and trying to get as many sources and perspectives on this as possible. And then this mornin...

Re: India-China News and Discussions

The Indian news media, especially the Hindi news channels, have over the last few weeks, been featuring sensational stories on the Chinese threat. This is indeed a welcome development as it is these channels that reach a mass audience and the awareness amongst the Indian masses is a must. The first ...

Re: Indian Army Discussion

I have been following the gallantry awards list since I was a child. Today, as a cynical adult, I feel as much pain and anguish at the posthumous awards as I felt as a wide eyed child. It saddens me to see so many good men laying down their lives month after month, year after year. Young officers an...

Re: Indian Roads Thread

The 1st phase of the Outer Ring Road from Gachibowli to Hyderabad's new airport in Shamshabad was innaugurated on the 14th of November. I happened to take a ride on it today. It is a 25 odd KM stretch, and we were able to negotiate it in just about half an hour. It is still not completely done, and ...

Re: Indian Economy: News and Discussion (June 8 2008)

If the numbers are large enough, there would definitely be an impact on the Indian economy, especially in relation to money supply and inflation. While oil, global trends, and go...

I don't know if this is the best place to post this whine, but here goes. I am one of those R2I types, and so far it's been great being back. The problem though is that GHQ & the brats hold another nationality. Thus began the trips to the Ministry of Home Affairs, Foreigners Division, to get vis...

There is a picture of a stealthy looking frigate, F711. AFAIK, that belongs to the French Navy, La Fayette class. Were the Frenchies playing around with us as well during Konkan?
