Many Ways Of ‘Power Projection’

Author: Vice Admiral Pradeep Chauhan AVSM and Bar, VSM, IN (Retd)

Regrettably, India is more often than not, reactive and frequently, its strategic-level game-plays are ‘too-little-too-late’. Numerous opportunities have been lost – many in critical locations such as Djibouti, Mozambique, Sri Lanka, Qatar and Oman – largely due to the ungainliness and discomfiture India seems to demonstrate when required to ‘play’ proactively at the ‘strategic table’.


Military Diplomacy And National Interests

Author: Air Chief Marshal Fali Homi Major PVSM, AVSM, SC, VM (Retd)

Let it suffice to say that today’s world is characterised by the changing power equations with new, emerging and re-emerging power centres which constantly need realignments and adjustments. New friends, new opportunities, new adversaries, altered threat perceptions and emerging conflict situations will remain the order of the day in the foreseeable future. In this very complex and ever-changing world, Military Diplomacy if used correctly and coherently can pay very rich dividends.


Many Dimensions Of Interactions

Author: Amb Dr Kanwal Sibal

Military diplomacy has many dimensions. It includes defence alliances, military bases, arms exports, arms aid, licensed arms production, co-development and co-production of equipment, joint exercises on land, air and sea, patrolling in the air and sea, maritime cooperation, military training, servicing of equipment and so on. Such links bring countries together strategically. In India’s case, the content of our military diplomacy cannot be as wide-ranging given our relatively limited military capacities.


A Component Of Military Diplomacy

Author: Lt Gen Satish Nambiar PVSM, AVSM, VrC (Retd)

It is imperative that the military dimension of Comprehensive National Power be factored into the formulation of our foreign policy objectives. In the immediate region, it would be useful to get off the high pedestal we have placed ourselves on, shed the patronising approach we seem to have mastered over the years and evolve mutually acceptable working relationships with our neighbours.


Nurture Indo-Pacific ‘Quadrilateral Arrangement

Author: Arun Prakash Adm, PVSM, VrC, VSM (Retd)

India must, with subtlety and sophistication, remain a pole or rallying point for countering China. To attain its ‘manifest destiny’ India needs help from friends and the US seems willing and able. Disregarding inconsequential quibbles of the Quixotic Left, India must grasp the technological help and cooperative agreements being offered by the US – with as few strings as realpolitik permits.
