DSA is as much yours, as it is ours! (December 2018)

| | | Share |

INS Arihant has completed its first deterrent patrol. No small achievement for India, its navy and for long-term security in the Asia-Pacific region. This is exactly where the country should aim to make an impact in terms of security and protection. It can only be achieved when India has a comprehensive naval up-gradation programme based on a national security strategy that is wide ranging and realistic. The manner in which the navy continues to be the ‘least’ budgeted service suggests India is far from achieving its goals, nationally or regionally — is a real pity!

DSA is as much yours, as it is ours! (November 2018)

The grisly details of Saudi dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s last moments continue to make news across the world. The fact that the purported crime occurred in the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul make for truly bizarre reading since a diplomatic facility is not known to be a murder site.

There is no denying the fact that the change has occurred in Pakistan. The duopoly of power has been broken; something akin to Aam Aadmi Party winning the Delhi Assembly Elections. For the first time, Imran Khan’s PTI will lead a government at the Federal Level which is not a small achievement. The voting pattern has been extraordinary in different provinces. But allegations persist that this ‘change’ has supposedly been managed. Foreign observers and Pakistani comments suggest that the Pakistan Army stands accused of having ‘fixed’ the election.

DSA IS AS MUCH YOURS, AS IT IS OURS! (AUGUST 2018)

The military serves in all possible human spheres of habitation and beyond. So the military person, belonging to any remote village anywhere in the country, is liable to serve, and mostly does so to, at the opposite end of origin. So, for example, if he or she is from the deep desert of Rajasthan, they will most certainly be found on duty at high altitude posts in remote Arunachal Pradesh. This has happened in the past and is certain to happen in the future. This spectrum of deployment puts enormous stresses on the body and the military logistics.
