Re: Terror Attacks on Mumbai-II

A bunch of 15-20 terrorists managing to kill just 125+ is not a good kill rate. If they had stood at one or two spots and fired away, they would have killed many, many more - perhaps a couple of thousand. Seriously. Mumbai is crowded enough for that to be possible. Too easy, in fact. But instead the...

Re: Terror Attacks in Mumbai

Folks: there was one mention of some high-up female (an editor no less) who was said to have disappeared after aiding the terrorists in some way from inside one of the hotels. Unfortunately I did not see the item which got pulled within minutes. But someone in my family did. Name uncertain. Muslim, ...

Re: Terror Attacks in Mumbai

Guys, there was a story on air for just a few minutes and then it was pulled. It talked about a female editor in the Times of India who was inside the Taj (Oberoi?) and co-ordinated the attackers from there. She then reportedly disappeared. her. Anybody has any information? The media is obviously bl...

Re: Indian Railways Thread

Recently I had an opportunity to travel on the 2951 Mumbai – New Delhi Rajdhani express. I had travelled long back (in 2001 I think); naturally I was excited to be travelling on this prestigious train again and was eagerly awaiting the d-day. Little did I know what was in store for me! The train arr...

Re: Future Nuclear testing: pros and cons-2

N^3, I'd like to understand exactly how acquiring hypersonic weapons by the US/Europe renders Indian ICBM capability less useful to India. Are you suggesting that the imminent appearance of hypersonic weaponry in the US/European arsenal makes them less inclined to try and stop the modest ballistic m...

Re: Future Nuclear testing: pros and cons-2

Shivani - a truly brilliant and eloquent post. Now that you said it, it looks very obvious why further testing has not happened yet. But - while it makes sense to wait till we have the delivery capability for our nukes - in what way will technology denial regimes hurt our ability to produce that ICB...

N^3, won't the landing of Amriki boots on Bakistani soil erase whatever notional distinction the AlQ and Taliban makes between Afghanistan and Blightistan? And thereby send the Talibunnies operating in Afghanistan charging inside and causing the exact opposite of what the Americans intend to do - &q...

What are you suggesting Shiv. Should the Hindus not stick to their view of what they believe to be true and compromise because the rest of the monotheist world is not able to grasp, that the narrow prism of religion cannot hold the definition of Dharma. Should the Dharmics, down grade to the monoth...

Well, we'll know for sure for sure when TSP begins "serial production" of this missile, in supposedly one months' time. What is worrisome is the possibility that TSP has obtained the missile in numbers, and kept them in storage awaiting a proper occasion to "test" them. And, I hear, the missile's ra...
