Rahul: as ridiculous as that suggestion sounds, it was exactly this line of thinking that caused us to not develop our China border infrastructure.

that particular strategy had its place, back then. it is one of the reasons why PLA could not continue staying in India. as such, in certain circumstances it is a legitimate defensive strategy.
of course, it doesn't make sense now.

Perhaps to give a few more seconds (than a sidearm can give) to evacuate the protected from surprise attackers who came through somehow. Maybe there are SOPs to deal with rogue situations.
plus these people would be strongly vetted during appointment and throughout their duty years.

Does anybody know:
1. Will the CMDS be standard fixtures to all An-32s?
2. What is the fixture just before the rump underneath the belly of the An-32?

Rahul, I was talking about the guys in the immediate vicinity of VVIPs. I remember reading about an approach to make the outer rings fool proof so that the guys in the close proximity dont have to carry automatic weapons. pistols may be allowed. Also is it good to see the PM surronded by men carrying guns? if automatic weapons are so imp why the president's body guards are not carrying that.. why SPG is not doing that when PM goes abroad, why many other head of states who faces similar degree of threats do the same.. there may be better ways of ensuring security..


i would say keeping heavily armed men in close proximity of VVIPs is like trying to prevent hacking attacks by using anti-virus in the system. there may be better mechanisms like firewalls to prevent the threat from reaching the system .. JMT.. :)

at 17:48 she can be seen approaching the PM's car from the left-hand side of the screen, as the car comes to a halt. She walks up to the far side, on the side the PM's wife emerges. Lady not hard to track; without a tie

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QXP_F7SW8p0


Question: We saw the PM's wife get a lady SPG officer protecting her. Why does the President not have any lady SPG officers in her security cordon? Also, are there any lady presidential bodyguards? Those who throw themselves over the president in case of an attack? Yes, in other countries, this Q would be stupid but in India, we need to respect some cultural sensibilities :-)

1st of all no outer ring is fool proof. These guys are not protecting dictators but elected leaders of a democratic country. And as elected leaders they need to meet with common folks from time to time. In those cases just arming the outer ring is useless. And a lot of the overt show of weaponry, dark glasses etc is also to intimidate - that is a lesson well learned from Khan. The PBG is a ceremonial outfit for the most part hence, the comparison is not valid.

Oh boy. The jingoes on BRF are REALLY observant, especially of a lady's foot ! Some eyesight !!!!!!
Perhaps we in BRF should start working closely with RAW (or ISI, Mossad, CIA, MI6, Savak etc)

That girl pretty much personifies India as a country - clambering confidentially into a bleeding edge tech symbol, while safely depositing that Deepam Silks bag (the other high point of the day). The French too seem relaxed, respectful and happy around her, instead of patronizing.

Lovely pic, Vishaal-saar for more than one reason 8)

OUTSTANDING!

Having tried uploading to Airliners.net i know its next to impossible to pass their quality standards & get a photo on there.
I made a search for all the Rafale shots in India on Airliners http://www.airliners.net/search/photo.s ... humbnails= & you're directly connected to all of them in some way except the one by Andreas & Rahul.
Would love to see a photo of you with the a/c.
Btw, are you on fb?

Me & Rahul were shooting together on the first 2~3 days & i was having dinner with him at his house while he was editing that rafale photo of his.
About Andreas, i helped him to set-up his India travel from the get-go :wink:

Vishal you might want to protect your pictures better? I figured out a way to download you picture... in particular the priceless "lal dresswali" tasveer... I would delete the pic in deference to your copyright and your effort... but thought I would warn you...
Keep up the good work... your pics of AI2011 and others were wooooow!!!
