Re: Future strategic scenario for the Indian Subcontinent

Abdullah is more favorable to India than Karzai. His family was in India throughout the Taleban times and he was close associate of Masood. This news is little uncomfortable. White House change may lead to Karzai ouster I am sure India would have looked into the prospect of after-Karzai Afghanistan....

Re: Greetings on Netaji's birthday

The problem is Kangress has been so far to the left that even centerists parties look like Right Wing and centrist leaders look like Extremists as below. Even BJP is more a centrist party than right wing. There is no yet true right wing party in India. Maybe its time for one, so atleast the definiti...

Re: Strategic leadership for the future of India

The below is article on what happened during hijacking. The reason is, it looks like only military families show resilience, guts and nationalism. Rest of India has become too soft and self centered. It could work very well for a country like Canada or Australia, New Zealand, but given India's world...

Re: Strategic leadership for the future of India

In my talks with high Indian officials who could actually implement this, the refrain is that the hand of govt. does not reach far and deep enough for this to be effective. I guess some sort of carrot and stick policy is needed to prod people to take it seriously, like free/subsidized healthcare, ad...

Re: Greetings on Netaji's birthday

The role of Soviet Union has to be seen in Netaji's whereabouts. Also Shastri died in Tashkent under suspicious circumstances, Homi Bhabha plane crashed so did Scindia's. You would never see a Laloo/Mulayam/Arjun Singh plane crashing. http://www.ivarta.com/columns/OL_060603.htm The question is wheth...

Re: Strategic leadership for the future of India

That is true. It does not all have to be military. Rigorous Sports competitions inculcate as much. There is famous Wellington's remark about the battle of Waterloo having been won on the playing fields of Eton. But some amount of Martial Arts and weapon training is also necessary. Actually it doesn'...

Re: Nuclear Threat From Pakistan : Boom or Bluff ?

In the Great Game of 21st Century, instead of fielding its own team either side, India has taken the role of an Umpire. Umpires are usually bad mouthed by both the teams and that is what is happening right now. It's time for India to field it's own team. The United States has the strategic, militar...
