One of How can Britain – a small island on the edge of a continent of diminishing global clout – hope to stand out from the crowd? The UK has sought to help India develop new cities and districts along a proposed 1,000 km corridor between Mumbai, India’s financial capital and Bengaluru, its technology hub, generating investment projects worth US$ 25 billion.

A hallmark of this strategic partnership has been British support for India gaining permanent UNSC membership and being an important interlocutor for India in the EU, G8 and other global contexts. On the negative side Pakistan’s proxy war against India runs unabatedly but Western aid to Pakistan has never been linked to Pakistan curbing radicalisation, shutting down terror infrastructure against India and not even linked to opening of India’s land route through Pakistan to Afghanistan and Central Asia.

Author: Dr Rajiv Nayan
For sure, the two countries have travelled a long way.  During the cold war, India and the UK were politically apart. The paradigm of optimism replaced that of mutual suspicion and hostility.  The UK is also a member of NATO. It has an obligation to use its nuclear weapons to protect other countries of the alliance.   Quite interestingly, India and the UK both agree that they would be more secure in a world without nuclear weapons.

Author: Lt Gen OP Kaushik PVSM, AVSM, VSM, M-in-D (Retd)
The Constitution has distributed legislative powers between the Union and the States under three lists. The States handle very substantial part of law and order, all the administration. Hence, it is not only a role that they should play in national security but also have an obligation to fulfill their Constitutional responsibility in this regard.
