My situational awareness is not complete... Samuel, i hope the previous map answered some of the questions. Hi Vivek, that helps substantially; I had my bearings mixed. considering the impending war with China was known, check the very first posts for the starting of the war. there was little strat...

There's a number of questions that come up for me... 1) What was the reason, considering the impending war with China was known, that an airbridge over Bangladesh was not negotiated for? 2) I don't know enough about this, but the AWACS is not jammed. Would it be possible, if not today, some day, for...

Re: 2 or 6 LACMS?

Hi SGupta, That's what I had thought too, until I came across some information posted earlier on this thread: http://forums.bharat-rakshak.com/viewtopic.php?p=337430#337430 I am not sure that SinoDefence is authoritative, propaganda perhaps? So either there are 6 LACMs of KD-63 type mountable or the...

Hi Vivek The evolving scenario is too fantastic. The CAC setup a diversion... The Chinese decided for a massive "decapitation" strike. Both started independently. Getting a standoff munition to punch through Delhi seems reasonable. Arming their H6s with 2 LACMs each is somewhat confusing e...

The point is, can we have a narrative be about what we actually are and aspire to be, not what we were (unless of course, what we aspire is Akhand Bharath, and an extra 300million of our Muslim-upon-Sindhu and Muslim-e-Bangla to help shape the demographics of India, heck lets throw in Afghanistan t...

There is no Sindhu river in Bharat, except for that embarrasment of a small stretch. And you want to call yourself something that people actually owning it can stick their thumbs to? There is no Gandhari either, and there is no Kamboja. There is no Kailas, there is no manasarovar; should I go on? Th...

Hi Shiv, you are onto something, I am walking with you. I have not read the other thread, but will do so. What is the Hindu narrative? Can we begin by reciting it? (as opposed to Hinduism (a truly universal concept), or that of an Indian (a truly nationalistic concept)). For the sake of argument, le...

Can "Indian" be separated from "Hindu"? According to Dr. Zakir Naik (honorary plenipotentiary) "Hindu" is a geographical term and Indian muslims can thus be called "Hindu" as well. If that is the case then, why have a thread on "religion"? How would...

So now I am getting myself tied in knots about who a real Hindu is, when a nationalistic and political barometer cannot be separated. I am no scholar. Someone please tell me where Vivekananda found Hindus and how he found them? Did Vivekananda have any idea about Hindus as opposed to Hinduism? Does...

And he got/inherited that from the Vijayanagar Empire. Hi Ramana, Acharya, Is it not the case then that Shivaji is being viewed as a real Hindu but through a nationalistic lens. He protected his (inherited) nation-state (a secular one I might add, if the veracity of wiki is to be believed). But the...

So lets go back in history to find a real hindu(s), so we can calibrate ourselves. We may not have to go back a 1000 years, lets go back a few hundred. Most would probably count chatrapati shivaji as a real Hindu, is that correct? Here is what wiki says (but clearly a better source might be preferab...

In a chaotic system a small change in the initial conditions can lead to massive and unpredictable effects at some future date. Having said that, chaotic systems tend to have areas of stability that last for varying periods of time If you consider Hindus as a chaotic group, it is worth seeing wheth...

To add...
