Re: Strategic leadership for the future of India

Everyone here is concerned about the future leadership of the country with respect to religion. Yes only and only religion. Please also share a thought that which leader will do something about population, corruption, infrastructure and 400 million poor un-fed people. Ya I know same old rhetoric an...

Re: Strategic leadership for the future of India

Chiron - I hate to impersonate the moderators but do not post genocidal rantings. Please delete that portion of the post. Just because I quoted the particular paragraph, does not mean that I attest the means suggested by the writers of that paragraph. In fact, I have stated my reservations about th...

Re: Kaveri & aero-engine discussion

..Prithvi Engine uses liquid fuel and generates very high thrust as well. Why can't we use that material to build kaveri engine? Rocket engines work for a few minutes and are single use. Surely unless you want the pilot to go on a kamikaze mission, a single use engine wont do for a plane. Plus rock...

Re: Kaveri & aero-engine discussion

If it actually flies, then that figure is quite possible actually. Most IRBMs missiles exceed Mach 15+. Agni II is officially listed to have a top speed of 5-6 km/sec (ref: 1 and 2). 5 km/sec = 5000 m/sec 6 km/sec = 6000 m/sec Speed of sound = 330 m/sec approx. Therefore Agni II hits a top speed be...

Re: Strategic leadership for the future of India

But sadly, there are not many young faces with BJP. The face of Pramod Mahajan which was promising is gone. Arun Jaitley lacks national appeal. Narendra Modi alone has national appeal, but he is kept at bay by LK Advani's ambition to sit on the throne. Furthermore, the Sickularist brigade of India w...

Re: Distorted history- Causes, consequences, remedies

There is difference between the Vedic versions and Puranic versions of the stories.. Puranic versions include everything which is not part of Vedas. Ramayan, Mahabharat, Srimad-Bhagvat, Puranas are not to be considered as Vedic literature. All these stories about Vishwamitra regarding Trishanku, par...

Re: Distorted history- Causes, consequences, remedies

Chiron - I have a question about your assessment of Vishwamitra in the "Dasarajanya" tale. In your take, you say that Vishwamitra sided with the invading forces and yet, he is a a venerated sage in Vedic and Hindu literature. In this vein, do you agree that this was not a religious battle...

Re: Future strategic scenario for the Indian Subcontinent

Brilliant analysis Shiv.. The analogy of surface to volume ratio was succinct. This is the way even body digests fats in aqueous environment of intestine. The fats being insoluble in water are broken down into tiny droplets thus increasing their net surface area. Furthermore, at any given time, the ...

Re: India to consider sending 120,000 troops to Afghanistan

Sending military to Afghanistan is good idea, but not now. Until India finds a solution to tackle with the resulting divided Pakistan, we should not divide it. A full-fledged strategy dealing with military, economical and social implications of formation of Sindh and Baloochistan as separate nations...
